Plastics are Destructive to Mother Earth and all Creation--Graphic Picture in Climate News

Climate News Network had an incremental picture (see below) today of a dead albatrass  chick full of all sorts of plastic refuse. It was taken by Chris Jordan (via US Fish & Wildlife Service HQ.)

The article notes that, "Timber rots, cement crumbles, metal corrodes: plastics are there for ever. By 2050 there could be 12 billion tonnes in the world’s landfills;" and that much of these plastic polymers end up in the ocean. You can read the article by clicking on the link below.
