We do not have the luxury of time to wait. We must NOW start fixing the symptoms of the problem we have all created in our environment. While politicians argue over 'global warming' our oceans fill with plastic which is not only toxic to sealife but is being mistaken for food.
Plastic polution in our oceans continues to grow daily. Only Maracaibo locals are aware of the "Black Ball of Death" in Venezuela's Lake Zulia. We can fix the contamination but we need to help people shift how they treat the environment. We can not continue to disrespect mother nature by pouring fecal waste, chemican runoff and oil discharge into our drinking water and oceans without expecting dire consequences.
The key is education and involvement of the business community. I've addressed these issues in Venezuela, El Salvador, Poland, India Sri Lanka, Kazakhastan and many other communities world wide and not only is the problem the same, the solution is always the same... Awareness and a plan!
