    Mankind will pay heavy price for the sheer volume of rubbish they produced sooner or later ,if they don't dispose of the rubbish waste ,these residual waste not only pollute the land but also disrupt the food chain of oceans ,more importantly ,some hazardous plastic waste will enter the animal's body and cause their death ,fish flesh by eaten by human even contain plastic ,this has highlighted the needs of waste disposal ,we also count on these young people with idealism to create the beautiful oceans for our offspring ,otherwise ,ocean will become murky ,the government should enacted a law to regulate the practice of business and use every medium available such as internet to inform people about the need to protect environment and raise the awareness of the public about the environmental protection ,so that people will be environmentally conscious ,

    Yes and some of the people who shout about the environment the most are the worst offenders.

      How could you possibly know that? Actually I never drop even the smallest bit of paper.

    Yup. I've read articles where Mt. Everest is turning into a trash dump and that there needs to be an effort to clean it all up.

    Hopefully, one day we'll have the technology that will allow us to leave rubbish on every planet in the universe.

    In the past they did and it can change and get better.

    That should not be done and on cruise ships they should have refillable containers so they do not waste plastic and each one should be issued one at the beginning of the cruise and if they lose it they should be charged. Someone told me some wonderful ones were cleaning up the garbage in the ocean and the ocean is doing better.

    So it seems. You have to invade Area 51 to find out if aliens came here...and left stuff like themselves.Voyager 1 is now outside the solar system just waiting to be found by the BORG and assimilated....tuned up and modified so it can return as VGER the Terminator with a DEATH RAY. We be so lucky we made contact with a race that is superior tech to ours...and told them where to find us. R We Stupid?

    . We got schitt on asteroids, on Jupiter, on Venus, on Titan? and just in space going nowhere fast towards the sun with the sun roof down and the 8 track playing Jan &Dean songs "Sun,Sun,Sun" & a case of cold brewskies.

    . China has landed on the far side of the moon and India just sent a rocket there today....something about Chinese Take out to pick up...

    Waiting for the rocket called the SS Minnow with Gilligan, the skipper too, the guy without hair & his wife, the movie star, the professor and Mary Anne

    Comparing some things left on the moon to plastic in the ocean is laughable. The oceans are a real problem because things live there. The contamination is much greater, you can see it anywhere.

    The moon is a barren rock and a big place. You could spend your whole life traveling it and not have a high chance ever coming across anything man-made.

      I saw a show last night on the moon landing. at least 100 items were left behind. mankind will persist in using plastic cause it is cheap. too bad about the environment.

    Pretty much.

    There are pieces of debris from old space missions (like the voyager probes) drifting out of the solar system as we speak. Our littering is not confined to the Earth and the Moon.

      Voyager missions are not litter any more than an asteroid is litter. Man-made objects are part of the universe because man is part of the universe. Litter is bad when it affects an ecosystem, which the edge of the solar system is not.
