Places where someone might think there is no pollution at all, seem to be polluted as some of the worst (known) polluted areas in the world. “Extraordinary” levels of pollution have been found 10 km deep in the Mariana Trench. (1)
The world is One.
And no matter how much we like to think otherwise…
A can of beer is always there to remind us the truth.
A Kansas State University research team has found that despite humans increasing nitrogen production through industrialization, nitrogen availability in many ecosystems has remained steady for the past 500 years. Their work appears in the journal Nature. 
Building, polluting, creating factories and yet… zero result.
If I recall correctly, insects have more effect on the planet’s ecosystem.
Trying your whole life to destroy the planet, to show you are important and then suddenly realizing that your are nothing more than a beatle…
The pressures of severe air pollution have prompted China’s environmental watchdog to consider pushing forward a legal ban on barbecues in densely populated urban areas. (1)

Even if I recycle my plastic cup for the nect 60 years (let’s hope I live this long), my personal contribution to the environment’s salvation will be the 0.00000000000000000000001% of the contribution that the installation of filters in ONE industry in China will have…
