Giant plastic catcher heads for Pacific Ocean clean-up
When a Dutch teenager went swimming in the sea in Greece seven years ago, he was shocked to see more plastic than fish.
In fact, Boyan Slat was so appalled by the pollution that he soon started to campaign for the oceans to be cleaned up.
For a long time, few people took him seriously. Here was a university drop-out with a far-fetched idea that surely could never work.
But this weekend, backed by major investment and some massive engineering, a vast plastic collection system will be towed out of San Francisco Bay.

A dolphin called Honey, 46 penguins, and hundreds of fish and reptiles have been abandoned at Inubosaki Marine Park Aquarium in Choshi after it shut down earlier this year.
Please urge the governor of Chiba Prefecture and the executive director of the Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums to take immediate action to transfer all the animals suffering at the derelict facility to sanctuaries, where they can be cared for.
Terror against animals is so all-encompassing and omnipresent that it is impossible to escape from it. The most recent example from my life: I take a boat to a lake to recover from the arduous writing of animal suffering every day, and to fight this terror against animals. Whom do I meet? An angler waiting for a victim!!
In another place, I enjoy the almost perfect silence – until the cry of a cow reminds me that the seemingly peaceful coastline is littered with “farms”; with lawless inmates awaiting a cruel death after a painful life. (I purposely say “scream” and not “complain” because trapped people do not complain.)
Back on land, I am sitting in a quiet moor landscape. Within minutes, I witness another animal abuse. A girl straightens its dog: “Sit! Stay here! “Then it marches away without turning around.
Uncertainty and anguish is written in the face of the animal. Soon the dog follows his supposed human friend – to be insulted and punished abrasively, because he still cannot suppress his affection and love.

Are some animal Experimenters psychopaths?
When animal experimenters cut up, burn, torment, and deliberately sicken animals, they’re almost never subject to punishment since that cruelty is being done under the guise of “research.”
In extreme cases, those who torture animals are full-blown psychopaths, having a dangerous personality disorder marked by traits and behaviors that include a lack of empathy, deception, manipulation, impulsivity, and a callous disregard for the rights of others.
