Headline news – Whale killed by a banana – environmental loading part 3a

A year after this post and the world is still promoting ever more trade which of course will kill more whales and hasten climate change. We are a long way from living sustainably.

10th February 2021

Following on from my environmental load part 3 post I’m adding an addendum to it. To this headline you might say “that’s bananas” and you would be right but I’m using it to highlight a human caused problem.

Bananas reach Europe by being packed into large refrigerated ships called reefers. They are then ripened using ethylene (maybe there’s a link here to climate change that I will have to look into),,to%20the%20UK%2FEurope).&text=When%20the%20bananas%20arrive%20at,then%20sent%20to%20the%20shops..

The point of my humourous attempt at a headline is that whales are being injured and killed along with other marine life in a variety of ways. As this BBC article highlights in this case it is through fishing but many creatures suffer unnatural collisions with ships, Ultimately because we have so many demands as a species the natural world and its ecosystems are suffering. We are in fact too many and we take too much and we will have to come to terms with that.
