    Literally nobody is against that, but if it were that easy to just change then we would. There are countless people already on that race and eventually we will evolve to more and more clean energy. The real issue is the attempt to force oil production to stop NOW because the earth will die in 12 years.

    Like the whole pipline fiasco we have here in BC. The left is simply using it as a scare tactic for votes.

    I already do my share. I'm waiting for them to do their share....of even 1/10th of it.

    Thirty years ago it was a fart in the wind.

    Well 2 issues.

    1, if you want to be rude, they are poor and stupid. Do you think they care?

    2, if Coke is making profits off them, and Coke was recently found to be the largest plastic polluter of the oceans, one could say Coke has some responsibility to help in the clean up.

    Nonetheless, there are options. Here's one amazing option...

    1) They don't care? Then what are we talking about? Oh, I see. Maybe if we care really, really hard, with sprinkles on top, we can make their pollution disappear, is that it? Why do you insist on us living by a different set of rules than the rest of the world when it's a global problem?

    2) Coke is not the largest pollluter of the oceans. I have no clue where you got that, but it's wrong. If you believe they're dumping their plastic waste directly in the ocean like these dumpster fire countries, I have some beach front property in Nevada to sell you.

    You literally, in no way, can argue that you think that there are more pepsi bottles floating in the ocean compared to Coke.

    Its not the grocery stores that want to charge you. Its the state. The grocery stores dont get to keep that money.

    Yeah, I don't really care if there's an article about it. It's virtually impossible for that to be true. You believe what you want.

    Besides, all that article really proves is that Coke sells more. As a result, there will be more of their bottles around. It doesn't prove anything about the company as corporate stewards of the environment. You were implying they were literally dumping their plastic waste into the ocean, which isn't true. If that were the case, it would be the lead on every news station in the country. CORPORATIONS BAD! Blah, blah, blah...

    This chart tells me that coke isn't the biggest ocean plastic contributor but the customers of coke are. That's different than what it sounds like you're arguing

    ...and my argument is Coke is profiting off those folks who are littering, and thus Coke should investing in methods to clean up the problem, such as the linked video above.


    ...but we all know how corporate responsibility goes.

    Since when is it a company’s responsibility to dictate how a customer uses or disposes of its product after the customer has purchased it ?

    Here's an idea. How about we find out why people are littering instead of who to charge with the cleanup. If people find it difficult to dispose of things correctly, then make it easier. How about we make all women's bras capable of collecting plastic. This way we will all be motivated to go up to the titties and drop off our waste. The women, will literally all be walking recycling bins. Problem solved. Again, titties.
