The original video  had some text I inserted in it that was unreadable. So I switched up the graphics in the texts spot. Plus I split the video into two to deal with THAT specific topic, individually below. They are:
Trash Islands, and, Water Bottles.
I wasn’t going to post on this subject, and all-in-all, this topic is one Christians have the moral superiority in.
A poignant point from a discussion about Global Warming via a professor I admire:
BUT, stats and movements founded on these false statistics shouldn’t be used in the pulpit. When the secular left rejects true religion, they supplement their spiritual quest with that of fallible mans quest as the object of their religion. Which is why many call — rightly so — modern day environmentalism a religion.
A recipe for disaster.
So pastors should be wary of this stretching of man’s credibility found all-too-often in the environmental progressive left. Likewise, this leftism has infected the church. Here is an exceprt from a book written by “emergent leaders” that will shed some light on how this man-made religion infects the church. This is taken from an old post entitled, “Feminist Extremism, Eastern Concepts in Youth Specialties and Gaia in Emergence“:
REMEMBER, this church the sermon came from IS NOT an Emergent type church. This sermon merely gives me the opportunity to critique eco-leftists and liberal theology a bit. So the following is a video critique of parts of the sermon followed by more information about the topics:
Floating Trash Islands
(Just so you are “in the know,” Patrick Moore is the co-founder of Green Peace. He has since left the crazy environmental movement and pushes for common sense — achievable, goals)
Plastic Pastors: Great Pacific Garbage Patch
Chapter 6 of Patrick Moore’s book is here, “The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is Full of Plastic and is Twice the Size of Texas.”
- A new study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences could mean bad news for environmental doomsayers. Forget all those warnings about the million tons of plastic debris floating in the ocean. Ignore the photos that you think show the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Andres Cozar of the University of Cadiz in Spain is the man who once extrapolated the 1 million-ton estimate. Since then, however, he has led research that collected samples at 141 ocean sites. Cozar’s new estimate: Between 7,000 and 35,000 tons of plastic are floating in the ocean. (The Great Pacific Garbage Patch Hoax | TOWNHALL)

This is with a h/t to The Dennis Prager Show:
Another news source says this:
MORE SCARRY HEADLINES:
- Great Pacific Garbage Patch is now nearly 4 times the size of California
- The Great Pacific Garbage Patch counts 1.8 trillion pieces of trash, mostly plastic
- The great Pacific garbage patch may be 16 times as massive as we thought
- Great Pacific Garbage Patch weighs more than 43,000 cars and is much larger than we thought

Water Bottle Myths
Plastic Pastors: Water Bottles
Myths About Bottled Water Still Confuse Consumers (FOOD BEV)
MYTH 1: Less than one in four people correctly knew that there is no BPA in the plastic used to package bottled water.
FACT: PET is the only plastic used in the UK for bottled water. PET does not contain BPA. The confusion is often made as BPA is a chemical found in another type of plastic called polycarbonate which is most often found in reusable rigid water containers. US studies suggest BPA has a negative impact on human health, and these studies often use the generic term ‘plastic water bottle’ to refer to polycarbonate bottles in their findings.
MYTH 2: Four out of five consumers falsely believe drinking water from a bottle that has been left in the sun can cause cancer.
FACT: It is a myth that plastic water bottles left in cars will leach carcinogens into the water. The health scare began in 2002 when a Japanese television programme broadcast a theory that plastic water bottles were unsafe. These claims have since been discredited by Cancer Research UK say on their website: “There is no convincing scientific evidence to back up these claims or to suggest that any of these products could cause cancer.”

Postscript to a Panic | New findings about bisphenol-A (BPA) will not redeem it. (Aug. 3, 2011)
People who live off $2 a day cannot afford the $.50 to have their meager shacks lit up… not to mention the strain on the shoddy electrical grid. This simple invention that started in Brazil and worked its way around the world via the internet is bringing light and saving money for the poorest people in the world.
