South Pacific Regional Message Board
Halloween costumes create 2,000 tons of plastic waste according to a new study. This is a massive number. To put this under comparison, it means almost 3 times the weight of Christ the Redeemer (statue) in Rio de Janeiro. That is a lot!!
Obviously, I am not saying that we should ban Halloween or something as that would be ridiculous, but people can choose their outfits wisely and companies should make eco-friendly costumes that create minimal harm to the environment. I implore and urge you all to please choose your outfits wisely and reuse your outfits or make outfits at home and refrain from buying new ones as that will contribute towards the harming of mother earth.
Let's make Halloween, Cleanoween!
For once, we are in agreement. Those prefabricated plastic costumes display a real lack of creativity, and are just downright ugly. Every time I see a small child walking around with a molded set of superhero abs, I just want to cry...
I blame parents for being lazy and just throwing money at a problem. All of my Halloween costumes growing up were homemade and terrible, but to look back on them, quite charming. Whether it was a teenage mutant ninja turtle made from cardboard and a saucer sled as a shell, or a Robin Hood costume made out of finding whatever green clothing we had and making a felt hat, or going as a TV by cutting arm holes in a big cardboard box and painting it.
*wanders away muttering about kids these days*
The Earth is doomed anyway. The Moon is moving away from us and the Sun grows larger and hotter. Go on greenies, protest about that. If the Earth was a person then it would be a constipated and overweight 55 year old with chronic gout, bad breath and piles. Fire up those rocket engines, let us explore space, that is our only serious hope as a species.
Well...if people like Extinction Rebellion and other greenies were really serious, they would start talking about sensitive topics. One such topic is global population control. Having children in the first place is the single most environmentally damaging thing an individual can do, unless you’re one of the Koch brothers or something. Someone who is around 45 today has seen human population nearly double during their lifetime.
“Warning Bell for Developed Countries: Declining Birth Rates
In developed countries today many women receive educations and earn salaries that are on a par with those of men. The fact that women are no longer socially or economically dependent on men has radically altered young people’s lifestyles. A woman can now choose to remain single, marrying only when a man adds value to her life or when she desires to have children within such a framework.
This is creating big changes throughout the developed world. The replacement rate–the reproduction rate that keeps a population stable–for developed countries is 2.1, yet nearly half the world’s population has birth rates lower than that. The U.S. has a total fertility rate (TFR) of 2.0–nearly the replacement rate–with Hispanic immigrants leading in birth rates. The U.S. is aging but not as fast as many other countries. A 2010 census showed that 31.4 million Americans live alone–27% of all households (equal to the percentage of childless couples). Living alone allows people to pursue individual freedom, exert personal control and go through self-realization, but these people have fewer children.
Western European countries have low fertility rates, below the replacement rate of 2.1. Germany: 1.4 (its total population is 81.9 million, of which 8.2% are foreigners). Holland: 1.8 (16.5 million, of which 4.4% are foreigners). Belgium: 1.8 (10.8 million, of which 9.8% are foreigners). Spain: 1.4 (46.1 million, of which 12.4% are foreigners). Italy: 1.4 (60.2 million, of which 7.1% are foreigners), the Pope’s views notwithstanding. Sweden, which provides deep support for parents, has a high TFR of 1.9 (9.4 million, of which 6.4% are foreigners), but that’s still below the replacement rate. Ireland and the U.K. also have high TFRs, at 2.1 and 1.9, respectively, but these rates are derived from non-European immigrant parents.
During the 21st century the U.S. could become the slowly aging leader of a rapidly aging world.”
This was all from this article I found on Forbes
I also put a link to an image showing the population growth rates map down below comparing the world and as you can see the highest population growth is in undeveloped countries in Africa not Europe, Asia or North America
So the key to the population explosion or at least a solution to help slow and maybe even one day stop it, is modernization. Africa will get there one day but they are not quite there yet.
Yes, in most western countries people are having smaller families. However, the UN still projects human population to reach over 11 billion by the of the century, and that’s the median projection number. That number is projected to keep rising into the early 22nd century.
Modernisation means increased use of technology, more roads, clothes, cars, plane rides, stuff in general. Most of which is damaging to the environment. And then modernisation of Africa or wherever has to serve an even higher base population than the previous generation. Your kid’s, kids, kids are going to have kids.
I don’t personally favour population control. However I find it slightly odd that environmentalists seem to shy away from human population growth being a factor in climate change.
Have you seen the movie “What Happened to Monday” on Netflix? As long as it isn’t like that lmao 🤣
I prefer ZPG, ignore the 70’s fashion. 😉
