What? Millions of babies killed a year doesn’t count? Terrorists don’t count? Tumbling morals don’t count? Drug addiction doesn’t count? Heart failure? Cancer? Flue – Eboli, Coronavirus? Or what ever the current type? Murder? MS13? Mexican Drug Cartels?
But I’ll side track from the serious stuff a bit and go to another danger to the world.
Watch the EPA run to find another algae, owl, snail, or snipe to write about – get to composing a grant for another hundred thousand so they can help save the planet! Meantime don’t clear out any forests and mess up nature’s habitat.
And can’t we do something about plastic straws? Someone else beat me to the draw on the solution. Straws made out of pizza. Okay, they say pasta. But pizza sounds better to me. I’m working on a better plan. We could use pizza for main course drinks, hard waxy chocolate would last through dessert time. Then one could end the evening by eating the environmental problem. And rubber straws should work fine for saloons and wineries. When the head falls into one’s drink, a rubber straw would be non-injurious.
Now forgive me, dear mothers, while I muse over a matter which really influences the environment. Can you imagine how big a land fill is needed for all the Pampers, Huggies, Parent’s Choice, Luvs, etc., that are used in a day, 30 times that for a month, 350 times that for a year for every little 0 to 2 year old that graces our lives! About 10 million a day in USA! And American mothers leave a very low carbon footprint in relation to a Japanese mother who uses about two and a half times more than her American counterpart. Whoa! It will take another Greta Thunberg to get that done. The new and unused Greta could have done it. We need new and unused Greta2!
I have heard that if the mind can think it, it can be done… So I’m thinking. How about a cloth diaper that has disposable “pockets” in them; how about poking holes in one side of a Walmart bag, then stuffing it with newspaper; how about recycling diapers through pig farms? Or, mothers used to use cloth diapers then wash them for reuse. Here comes a Mother’s March!
I really do need a side job—something that pays big would be nice. I can probably find instructions online…..maybe I should learn Japanese….does the Japanese government fund EPA grants…. I wonder, will my young mothers still love me….
