This Crab Wears A Broken Bottle For A House; Garbage Isn’t So Bad
What’s all the fuss? When garbage and pollution are everywhere, that’ll be the new natural.
Take this snippet from (the thoroughly excellent) ClimateShifts.org:
The discussion on the problem of marine litter takes me back to an incident in Sulawesi Indonesia where school kids doing a beach clean thought that the litter was normal and started clearing up all the organic debris instead of the rubbish. Where do you start?
The author, Richard Unsworth answers his own question. Pick up the shells, don’t recycle them, and throw them in a landfill until the landfills overflow with all the stuff that tree-huggers love so much.
Unsworth even throws in a photo that totally makes my case — a hermit crab is using a broken soda bottle as a home. That crab doesn’t see problems. He’s got a brain half the size of a mouse poop, and the only thing he sees is opportunity.
And the crab’s doing us a favor. Of course, that little guy isn’t doing this for us, but just the same, no one’s going to step on that broken bottle. I mean, it’s moving!
