Thanks Edwin, Estelle.
Human beings having advance and fully developed brain to keep safe our mother earth, it's creature and for living harmoniously with human beings & the rest nature.
Due to lack of knowledge (Saty/ truth) human misusing their imagination.
"Power of imagination is a tool available to a human by its intrinsic design, we can either use this tool for entertainment or for "considering" proposals/information to understand ourselves, our world and our purpose. ..."

My friend Rose from One Vibration had posted it to our group as well! This was my comment; Our ways & actions towards other lives causes their death! Humanity must really clean up our harmful ways of how we dispose of trash as it kills beautiful life far from where we live. Goes to show we are all connected! Thanks Roshani for this video! It is short, but tells a sad story!

It's very sad to see decomposing birds with plastic trash in their stomachs. Everyone, no matter how close or far from the ocean, can contribute to the solution: reduce, reuse and recycle!

Thank you Roshani and Henriette for the forward.

Thanks brother Parsifal for the video. This one... made me sad again :(
Previous (when I was child) in India's villages villagers used leaf plate in any function. But now they are using plastic coated leaf plates. Previous every material we found in paper bag or news paper roll but today every thing we get in plastic! I try to take materials from market in homemade cotton bag but it is not sufficient because so many things like in your video almost 90% item is covered with plastic as medicine, computer material etc...
We get horrible result day by day...so sad...
I see cow in our area who dies because of this plastic. People throw food in plastic bag, poor cow and others animal couldn't break this bag and they eat this food with plastic.
When ever I saw all this things, tears in my eyes....

OMG! Seeing these magnificent birds dying slowly and probably painfully from our trash is heart-wrenching, and shameful.

You're right, Roshani --everyone should see this, and resolve to clean up their act.

Sadly noted. We live in such a fake world when plastic can be mistaken for food for babies. We need to do more to irradicate plastic and recycle what we cannot irradicate. I hope the future it brighter for the bird life on this island.

This damage to a marine environment is just a tiny part of the overall consequences of the enormous explosion in human population over the last half century. In spite of this and countless other issues from climate change to habitat loss a tiny fraction of the money spent on infertility research is spent on better contraception whilst politicians to popes to economists to priests and to mullahs all demand of the populace breed, breed breed!

Message from Devansh brother,

My Dear Friend Bernard,
Thanks for your message.
I appreciate your efforts to understand the problem and share this good message, but I beg to differ with you at root cause of the problem. According to you, the root cause of problem is increase in population. I feel, population is not the problem. The problem is somewhere else.
In my opinion the root cause of all this problems lies in,
1. Profit motive behind everything. Which leads to capitalism, industrialism, creating artificial demands, making a lay man a consumer, teaching a lay man that consumption is the way of life with ads and movies.
2. Centralized systems, in which a human being cuts off from other human beings and rest of the nature. A human being in current centralized systems becomes just a consumer. He works for some corporation for money, purchases things from market, disposes them irresponsibly and then all the waste is dumped in far away places as shown in the video shared.
3. Unless, until we understand that life is much more than just the profit and there are greater dimensions in life than just economy, profit, material and sensory excess! We cannot come out of the problems we are discussing here.
Without addressing human understanding if we try to address the problem, we may propose some short term solution, which will not solve the problem from root level.
With Regards,
Devansh

Thank you sister Roshani, I admire you for your wise friend(s) Devansh, you quote

Please check out this clip - it is absolutely contradictorily to 'care'2 agenda (!)
Issues like Geo Engineering or GMO, mandatory vaccinations, junk food (even this stuff what we consider to be human like nutrition), the pollution of our sacred elements by huge Globalist corporations, wars, the contamination by radioactivity and voluntarily by cellphones, WIFI nets and a series of other serious threats is not included in this video.
If you see it this way, we should think how we can preserve mankinds survival with a shrinking population.
Overpopulation is a Myth

Have you seen the Geo Engineering video, Henriette M. passed on ?
200 species a day being extinct - useless to say for good and this experiments have of course enormous impact to the entire world population and biosphere.

- Thank you again for posting this mindblowing video - Parsifal

Half way into the video, I had enough. This is the kind of video that needs to be mass produced, and sent out to every high school in America. All you need are a handful of children who after viewing this, are willing to make a difference.

This video breaks my heart (as do many others) It's not the people whe care that haven't the courage to face up to what's going on , it's the fact that there are far too many people who have a couldn't care less attitude and the people like us on Care 2 just have to go on fighting and never giving up in the hope things will eventually change.I hope with all my heart that they will!!!

Tears of joy for the 1st few seconds of the video, tears of sadness for the next minute and then tears of utter FURY for the destruction of these beautiful birds! Will we ever learn how destructive we are? Not just within ourselves with continual wars, but with everything else. OVERPOPULATION IS NOT A MYTH! IT IS ALL TO REAL!

So very sad. People can be so cruel and disgusting. How they can live with themselves knowing they are doing these retarded acts of violence to sea and land animals, when all they have to do is use a bag to toss the trash into. Wish these idoits would vamish from the Earth, if they aren't going to go by the rules. Thanks Roshani

Very sad, and I agree with Alan, this needs to be shown to every child in school. I've posted this on my FB page, but I can tell you who is going to view it, mostly my friends who I have met on care2, or through animal rescue organizations, not my relatives, that's for sure. It is difficult to fathom that people do not realize that once we've destroyed this earth, there is nothing else. You can't buy your way out. Even very rich people's children' children will question what was done today by careless consumerism.

Thank you for that powerful reminder Roshani. That was a truly horrific film to watch, and I can't see the irresponsible dumping of rubbish by us humans happening any time soon. When I was growing up items were mostly made out of metal, glass, wood, paper, cardboard, or some other organic material, and we were taught in school to put our litter into litter bins, but now litter is just about everywhere. Household waste, building waste,and fast food waste covers our land, our rivers, and our seas, we've even got loads of the stuff orbiting our planet. We need to urgently switch over to recyclable and organic materials once again, teach children the importance of looking after our planet, and avoid plastic as much as possible.

Next time you throw something small on beach or ocean, it is not inconsequential, also what about ships refuse and all the barges floating around with no where to dump, full of garbage? Please consider this anywhere you throw garbage, birds live in the forest and cities too!

Dear brother Parsifal Rain Satori thanks for your valuable comment and thanks for sharing vid . I haven't seen Geo Engineering Video.
I think understanding is here main reason for all problems. Understanding(sanskaar) develop in humanbeings from Education. And when we see our education system, HUMANIZATION is disappear.
Look this in another angle ....
When we saw whole planet we find four stage in this existence,
1) Matter
2) Pran stage ( all cells which is taking part in respiration) - so all plants, animals, and human cells comes in this stage)
3) Animals stage
4) Human being stage
When we draw a drawing according % of this all four stage we will get triangle shape. Where in base we get Matter stage which is in very high %, after that we can put Pran stage which is less then matter stage, Animals stage offcourse more less then Pran stage (cells/ tissues/ plants) and in last we get human stage with in very less amount.
So here human being population is not the problem.
Anyway it is the subject of long discussion and this platform is not sufficient and we can't get any result/ achievements. Discussion here is the loss of our effort. I think systematic group discussion is good for this issue.
With regard
Roshani

@Michela thanks for the comment. I wasn't aware that this post is already post in care2 site. Actually when I saw this video which is shred by my FB brother Dewansh, I was shocked after watching the result of our activity. Yes I heard that animals eat these all dangerous elements spreading by us but it is more different to watch truth with your own eyes.
And after watching these all comments of my care2 friends I feel proud that if any one person change himself/ herself or can change others...this will be a great achievements for me.
Thank you :)

Sad to see those poor chicks suffering a horrible death on Midway Is. I have seen a similar video before on C2, from the same photographer Chris Jordan, this is the never version and not only shows dead birds filled with plastic but also the suffering of the dieing chicks. It is just absolutely insane what the human race is doing to the environment. Planet earth is supposed to be shared by any form of life on earth, but we seem to claim earth is only for us, such an uneducated view. Selfishness and greed seems to rule and that will be of our undoing.
Roshani, you mentioned :"Previous (when I was child) in India's villages villagers used leaf plate in any function. But now they are using plastic coated leaf plates........ "
That brings back memories, I married an Indian girl 40 years ago and spent 5 years In SE Asia, one of my favourites was Masala Dosa on a banana leaf, a real one, not plastic! But now we live in Australia and the Dosa is served on stainless steel plates in Indian restaurants, not plastic. But I did give it a go and planted a banana tree, in our climate not many 'plates ' can be harvested, but only for special occasions. But at least my curry leaf tree is doing very well to the delight of my wife and other Indian friends.
