Calvin will use any excuse to go naked.
When Miss Wormwood asks the class what they did to “help save the world”, I guess this will be Calvin’s answer.
Many years ago we did a lot of hiking. We always brought more garbage out then we took in.

Calvin just polluted the scenery.
At least he didn’t litter the ground with his clothes like he does just inside his front door.
I’ve often thought that our landfills will be huge archaeological treasures, or time capsules, to the next inhabitants of the Earth in 40,000 years.

Where is your wonderful fur, Calvin?
Sorry, Calvin. You can’t shed your species by shedding your clothes.
The mayor in New York City harps on climate change, but takes a caravan of SUVs every day to Brooklyn to work out. The trip takes nearly an hour and he passes tons of gyms on the way.
As a child, my parents’ phrase was “leave no trace of your passing”.
Come to southern Spain, possible the dirtiest roadsides in Europe.
Where is the crying Native American (Indian) when you need him?
Eventually the planet will shrug off all humans
Spoiler alert, one day these woods are developed and that is really sad.
I can see that some people are just too lazy to inconvenience themselves. After all walking 100 feet to a trash can can be very exhausting (and we wonder why we are fat-America). But I take my morning walk through residential neighborhoods. People go out of their way to throw trash out of their cars. Of course they can’t wait to get home and toss it in front of their house. But, that’s America today: all about me, the hell with everyone else, even my own children and grandchildren: look at our leadership and the example they are providing. “That gold should ruste what will iren do?”
And that’s the bare facts.
Few years ago I worked with a local fishing fleet in the PNW, taking care of PCs and comm equipment while they were in port. I was idly reading their bulletin board one day and was literally shocked at one particular poster issued by the US Government dictating how far offshore the boat had to be before dumping various items of garbage and trash. I don’t remember details, but it went in stages, and beyond a certain distance, maybe 25 miles, anything could be tossed, dumped, or flushed. I’m okay with organics that will decompose or be eaten, but plastic?
“In man’s evolution he’s created the cityAnd the motor traffic rumbleBut give me half a chance and I’d be taking off my clothes And living in the jungle’Cause the only time that I feel at easeIs swinging up and down in the coconut treesOh what a life of luxury to be like an apeman”
From the song “Apeman” by the Kinks
Spent a week’s vacation at BSA camp. Made it a habit of picking up any paper or garbage on the ground. Those walking with me also picked up garbage. Camp was very clean and most of the Scouts were consciously putting garbage in the trash cans; but, there’s always a few. We would take a few minutes and explain why to pick up after yourself. In a few cases it was evident the parent(s) never taught that.
And, somehow, being naked removes your humanity?
Not being naked but the act of removing your clothes.
The vast majority of humans are slobs.
Hobbs is correct. More tigers, less humans (unless they be lunch for tigers).
i am grateful i live in a community that believes in composting and recycling as much as possible
There are some idiots where I am who just seem to throw rubbish out of their cars. Would it kill them to use a bin?
Salutations! I have returned!
Yeah, I don’t get these people that think the earth is their trash can. On the other hand, in respect to Hobb’s statement, that’s only if you choose to discount or ignore the much good that most people do.
As i bend over to pick up someone else’s trash, and walk the quarter block to drop it in the trash can, i mumble, “i live in this town too..”
