    While the MSM has concerned everyone with the important Kanye story or Trumps latest tweets or the continued painting of the administration destroying the world.
    Trump signs bipartisan bill in effort to clean debris from the oceans.

    Trump Signs Bill to Improve International Cooperation on Ocean Trash Cleanup


    Trump signs 'Save Our Seas Act' to boost clean-up efforts in world's oceans


    A positive development that concerns all is but ignored by the drive by media as they must paint conservatives as uncaring of the environment. This story doesn't fit that narrative.

    So, he'll clean up a little, and dump a lot? How's that going to work?

    China leads the world as champion polluter.
    We have drastically cut our emmisions while China and India expand theirs.

    What exactly are we dumping a lot of? Specifics would be appreciated.

    Most garbage and pollution I see is in high density urban areas. City dwellers are pigs. Doesn't matter how many garbage cans you put out, the debris ends up in the streets and washed into the waterways.

    He doesn't have much to clean up since America doesn't contribute much to ocean trashing in the first place. The Act is an attempt to help other nations to clean up their trash.

    From the first link:

    "The Save Our Seas Act of 2018 extended the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Marine Debris Program for an additional five years, and directed the State Department and other federal agencies to work internationally to prevent countries from using the ocean as a landfill.

    The act charges NOAA to collaborate with other U.S. government agencies to deal with land- and ocean-based sources of the trash, both domestic and foreign.

    “People don’t realize it, but all the time we’re being inundated by debris from other countries,” Trump said. “And we will be responding and very strongly.”

    Funny how this signing of a positive bill is virtually ignored by the entire media.

    Most conservatives I know are very concerned about the environment. Many hunt and fish supporting the environment through direct fees and licensing.
    Many live rural and in pristine areas.
    I have a private well, and am very concerned about water quality.

    None of the crusaders will give up their convenient spring water served up in a plastic bottle. Their newest plastic I-phone, their convenient way of life in any form.
    Yet expect the U.S. to foot the economic costs of regulations while letting China off the hook. Trump was right to not join the Paris aggrement.
    The countries of the Orient are destructive to the ocean. Pollution, over harvesting of resources, Japan actively allows whale hunting despite international objections. China building islands in an expansion of naval force.


    Now when Trump puts money to the effort to clean up the island of junk, and call out countries participating in the pollution, no one can even give credit when it is due.
