    The Environment

    This subject doesn't have it's own thread, but really deserve one.
    One of the things that cause problems in the sea is lost fishing gear that NEVER disappears.
    It is not as visible as plastic bags and drink bottles and does not get the same attention (excessive at times) as oil spills, but it is a constant killer of fish and other creatures all over the world.

    Could this reduce the problem??: http://www.smp.no/naeringsliv/2016/0...e-13196184.ece

        Interesting, and what strikes me is that, the difference between order and chaos is small. A volcanic eruption, a tsunami, a war.... there are so many threats, and so little we can do to prevent it from happening.

          Time to start looking for old slippers along the beach and do your own bit for the environment

          Or if you prefer a different building material, here is a few ideas:
          Beer Can Boats
          To empty all those beer cans (or bottles) would probably be more enjoyable than to hunt for flipflops.

            Who emits the most CO2, in real terms and per person? Here is a table to tell you the answer:


            But where is Norway in this? If you only count what is made in country, probably not much on either side here, but if we look at emission from Norwegian produced oil and gas and Norwegian controlled shipping, the ranking would probably be high on both counts. But that is not how we like to look at it, is it??

              That is interesting, ombugge. UAE has a very high tons per person quota. I wonder what makes them so leading in that field?

              Australia too, quite high per person.

              I was not surprised seeing China at the top of the list of total emissions.

                Yes they are the biggest polluter in total, but low in per capita because there are more people in China then in all of Europe, North America + all other developed countries in the word on whichever continent combined.
                If we add total pollution from all those countries it would be WAY above China for obvious reasons.

                Not sure where Norway fits into the equation on per capita emission. (??)

                  What is maybe surprising is the position of Canada and Australia, both with relatively small total pollution and small population relative to land area.
                  In Canada's case one would expect high pollution because of the oil sand extraction, but Australia??
                  Maybe because of the bleating, burping and farting livestock??
                  PS> If so, New Zealand and Argentina should be high on the overall list.

                It would be interesting to see the extended version of this list, as we would see Norway's place too.

                That China is so high is not surprising, as you say, they also produce almost everything we buy (except from food), in one way or another.
