meme via Bill

Bill sends over another meme:

I mentioned the plastic-straw kerfuffle here. Watch the Stossel video and learn more about how the problem has been exaggerated. Am I happy that so much plastic pollution clogs the world's waterways? Of course not. If anything, I think human pollution worldwide is both a deep shame and a more serious, more immediate problem than climate change. That's where our environmental efforts would have the most impact. But let's keep the straw thing in perspective—it's based on superficial research by an elementary schooler—and not be suckered in by emotional appeals involving turtles with bleeding nostrils.
