Joe.

How many birds and marine animals die each year from being killed to feed the world's growing population? According to Wikipedia, 50 billions chickens alone are raised every year as a source of food - including their unborn babies. How do you respond to those who claim that 998,742 is the actual number of birds and marine animals that die each year from consuming or becoming caught in plastic and other debris?**(according to "official" Government statistics)**

Look at 3rd world countries waterways like Haiti or Thailand. They don't even bother to throw things in the garbage, no wonder so many animals die because of pollution. How about not shipping plastic to 3rd world countries who have no concept of trashcans or sanitation before punishing the rest of us.

I guess I missed the Tax part of the article. But what the heck they want to tax our mileage also so why would anyone be surprised. Nonetheless
It is clearly another time the liberals are interested in TAKING something from us because of course it's good for us and they know better. I agree with the commenter who state they should be educating Not Dictating. But Liberals don't like that idea, they would have to admit that yes we know how to think. In another 30 years you will have no freedom to choose in California or any other Liberal state. Now go ahead lib heads attack me. I know you can't stand the truth
