As we sailed around the world, there was never a day that we didn't find trash floating in the water
. It's everywhere.
In the Tuamoto Archipelago of French Polynesia
, the windward side of the atolls are like trash bins catching every kind of non-biodegradable debris imaginable. It was shocking to see.
and composting toilets are a band-aid on the real problem of human pollution and waste. Overboard
discharge of human waste is an easy target for lawmakers who don't want to deal with the real problems of human pollution.
In America, our water supply is so polluted with drugs and chemicals that the government
is suppressing the truth from the public. People and the pharmaceutical industry flush trillions of pills down the toilet each year, and our water table fills up with drugs. In many places, pure water does not exist. Water is a cocktail laced with dozens of drugs that made it down to the water table.
Discharge of untreated waste into the water is bad. I wish that was the real and most serious problem that faced us. I would take that problem any day over a nation so addicted to chemicals that the water supply is no longer safe.
