Pick up after yourself

Stolen Borrowed from William Teach:

As We Come Into Beach Season, Please, People, Clean Up Your Garbage

By William Teach May 18, 2013 – 4:44 pm

As I’ve said numerous times, just because I do not agree with man-induced “climate change” doesn’t mean I hate the environment. From my favorite New Climate Denier website, Grist (yeah, I cite them a lot)

Back in 2012, 561,633 very nice people went out on beaches around the world and picked up the trash that other people had thrown there. They picked up an astounding 10 million pounds. That’s the weight of 5,000 cars. It’s heavier than the Capitol dome.

What’s even more astounding is that this isn’t even the most trash the Ocean Conservancy has collected in the 27 years this challenge has been going. Twice before, volunteers collected more than this amount of trash, measured in weight, and once before, they collected more total items.

It ought to go without saying: clean up your mess. You don’t have to swallow the idiocy — and hypocrisy — of the warmists to know that you shouldn’t leave a mess for other people to clean up.

My personal pet peeve: cigarette buts. For some odd reason, some smokers seem to think that their butts don’t count as trash, and they leave them everywhere.

  1. Good points. I’m a smoker (slowly quitting) and it annoys me when people throw them out the window. I keep a used bottle in the car. Also hate when people throw anything out the window. And when it comes to the beach, it’s so beautiful, why spoil it?

    Funny part is, after most rallies it is the Liberals who leave tons of trash, while conservatives leave the place cleaner than when they first arrived.

    Chris Muir noted the difference between conservatives and liberals at their two 2010 rallies on the Washington mall:

    Of course, Chris Muir’s cartoon was just a drawing, but it is one which reflects reality!

    On the Mall after Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally:

    From The Conservative Lady:

    And Scott Baker of The Blaze, after the “One Nation” rally:

    Oh, well, at least some of them hit the trash can!

    It’s a good thing that our friends on the left are such staunch environmentalists; imagine what the place would look like if’n they weren’t!

    John Hitchcock addressed the differences here, an articles in which, alas! one of the photo links has been lost.

    And the various “Occupy” rallies left nothing but filth and debris in their wake. I’m not sure whether that is the difference between politics and maturity; it’s probably both.
