Despite Westerners being lectured by climate activists, a study has found that 90% of plastic waste in oceans comes from Asia and Africa. A study from Germany shows that the 10 top-ranked rivers transport 88% to 95% of the global load into the sea, with eight of the rivers located in Asia and the other two in Africa. The rivers with the highest plastic loads are the Yangtze River in China and the Ganges River in India. While westerners are being told to alter their lifestyles and have fewer children to save the planet, virtually nothing is being said about the countries primarily responsible.  -GEG

During her U.S. tour, Thunberg cited “horrifying pictures of plastic in the oceans,” as one of the primary reasons why Americans should listen to her.

However, researchers at Germany’s Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research discovered that a small number of rivers account for the vast majority of plastic pollution and none of them are located in western countries.

“The 10 top-ranked rivers transport 88-95 percent of the global load into the sea,” Dr. Christian Schmidt, a hydrogeologist who led the study, told the Daily Mail. “The rivers with the highest estimated plastic loads are characterized by high population – for instance the Yangtze with over half a billion people.”

Out of the top ten rivers that produce the most pollution, eight are in Asia and two are in Africa. The Yangtze River in China and the Ganges River in India were responsible for the most plastic pollution.

While westerners are being told to alter their lifestyles and have fewer children to save the planet, virtually nothing is being said about or to the people in the countries responsible for the vast majority of pollution.

The reality is that there is more crime in minority neighborhoods, more need for police intervention, and more exposure to the possibility of excessive violence. The disintegration of support for police is a crushing blow particularly to those living in black communities where crime rates are soaring.
