Humanity. We deserve it.

Too much trouble to put it in a truck and take it to the dump?
Too much trouble to take your rubbish home and recycle it?
Let Covid wipe out most of the humans, that'll reduce the problem

Oh FFS there could have been a truck there to take that rubbish somewhere where rubbish should go. That could have been done so much better.

Yeah, the third world along with India and China are the biggest producers of pollution and aggregators of global warming.

When it started I was just thinking, "Oh, that's actually quite helpful and will make the job much easi-"

Well, to my credit, I did at least feel genuinely bad about laughing out loud at that.

Literally downstreaming the problem, that's... heh, that's farking terrible.  Heh.

// On the other hand, my reaction to the comments under the clip from the people trying to defend this as somehow legitimate was more of a cold, unflinching murderous rage.  I would encourage them to kill themselves, they wouldn't be missed and the world would be a noticeably better place for it.

In defense, this is probably a good thing. Look at the current. This looks like rubbish that's been dislodged upstream during a storm and gathered in one particular spot/whirlpool.

There's a chateau in France that rewards the local crows, with a small treat of food, when they bring back rubbish and dump it. Can't remember the name of the place, but it's very cool.

It would be funny if that's what the lift driver was trying to do. But they were clearly just trying to keep the bridge from getting clogged and washed away. Brave person to park in that bridge like that btw.

So I watched the video for a minute... Where was this though? To be fair though, debris impaction can cause a stream or river to rise rapidly. I'm guessing they were just do the most expeditious thing to clear the water flow. That's the kind of thing that can get bad really fast.

What are you guys talking about? That is the epitome of environmentalism. That bridge was blocking the natural trash flow. And instead of leaving it all blocked up, someone decided to do something about it, and free the trash to go on its journey. What have you done lately?

Rachel Carson was born in 1907, definitely not a boomer.
