definitely bad. beyond bad, horrible. but it's one of those things that we as humans have done and now it has a momentum of its own and is impossible to stop. I guess the first step is awareness of the problem. Can we turn it around before it does us all in?

Back on the subject about what to do with old tires. An article just came across the internet about a project started back in the 70s. It placed 2 million old tires off the coast of Florida to create an artificial reef. It turned out to be an environmental disaster, and they had to be removed. The article said there are still 500,000 down there. The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray.
