Disease outbreaks, pandemics and toxins are all signs of a collapsing ecosystem

Toledo residents aren't even being told the truth - http://www.naturalnews.com/046314_Toledo_water_crisis_algal_bloom.html

I foresee a day when we will be sitting under a mile of ice and the internet will say, "We can't definitively link this to climate change..."

And people along the equator will be swimming in lava and shouting to each other, "Yes, but we can't definitively pin this on global warming, amigo."

It's a shame that these people like to cover up the real truth. Why do people like to pollute water so much with toxic chemicals? :(

Dysfunctionalised capitalism - producing food a BIGly and cheaply as possible, ergo, destroying the planet.

The local news reports did tell us what algal blooms were, and what is causing them. They specifically said it was from chemical runoff from people fertilizing their lawns, golf courses, etc. But either way, we're to blame.

But I'll be damned if my FB feed wasn't blowing up with conspiracy theories about this. Because actually admitting we're ignorant, and solely responsible for the degradation of our ecosystem, though we've been proven wrong countless times, is clearly out of the question, amirite?

You spelt "right" incorrectly, btw.

Crazy theories always come up - even in the heads of those people eyeballing your mother. Or after some tragic shooting, etc. This is regrettable because it gives a bad, "tinfooil hat," name to people trying to construct real, plausible theories and hypotheses. Then, the lies get their boots on and walk all over the truth. I guess people are in stress mode, and wont to say whatever comes to their minds, off the cuff - not like they have been thinking about the issue(s) well ahead of time or anything. And where else but FB! (I heard FB went down a few days back - and 10,ooo people called the po-lease about it in L.A.).

All my life I have been trying to get through to people about environmental problems, and they all give the big Rush-Limbaugh BS, or cold shoulder. Once, they buried me in a pit full of warrior ants.

btw - I made a mistake when I commented to you that high-nitrogen fertiliser was to blame for red tides, when it was phosphorus. That was brain-block on my part, and I realised it later. Fortunately, my mistake did not cause the planet to go extinct. But one day...!

'Amirite' is actually an internet joke used to infer sarcasm or an insult lol.

Oh god, people would call the police because of fb going down. That is pathetic, but unsurprising.

My bf is a global warming denier and I'm just like...

It's okay, it happens :)
