Plastics in the ocean is apparently also a problem for whales:



That's one heck of a pińata. That is to say, it does not look like a real whale.

Did Zanthius say htat it's a real whale then? The 'whale replica' in the URL of the image would give it away don't you think Wink.

Tineye.com helps in this matter luckily, so more info is here:

Or you can read about it here: https://www.spot.ph/arts-culture/art-exhibits/70139/dead-whale-project-story-a00171-20170512

Even though it was an art project, it is based on a true story, and whales are dying from plastics....

Here is an article from today about this problem: http://www.onegreenplanet.org/news/plastic-found-in-arctic-ocean/

the fun thing about that whale is that when it is thrown away it makes other whales die.

I was suggesting that an actual image like the earlier one would perhaps be more convincing.

Don't you think that enough sea creatures have died already for this topic?

More nice news about cattle....

Quote
Scientists have long been aware that methane emissions from cows can impact on our climate, but a new study claims that cow farts may have had a far bigger impact on global warming than we thought possible. The findings, published in the journal Carbon Balance and Management, claims that we may have been off in our calculations of methane emissions from livestock by a staggering 11 percent.
