Littering, long showers, not recycling... What's your biggest pet peeve about the way some people (mis)treat our planet?

  • I can't fucking stand it when people litter and throw ciggarette butts on the fucking ground or worse, toss them out the window when they are driving and they land on my fucking windshield. Ugh...
  • My biggest peeve is actually two. One is throwing cigarette butts out the window of a car. Seriously not good for the environment. Some animal can come pick it up..
     My second one is recycling. Granted I wasn't a big one before I started college except for cans. But recycling isn't that hard if there's spots to do it. My first college had places all along campus for bottles and cans. It had places behind the dorms and in the dorms for recycling. My second college finally got it in the dorms for recycling, which is uber easy. Oh look empty bottle..hmm trash can or can for recycling in the exact same place.  It really is easy to do..cities and such just need to make it an option.

  • Watering their lawns; when it's all gonna be dead in the winter.
  • Treating it like we gotta lay our lives on the line to protect... a pine tree. Oh. My. Goodness. We're made to rule it, not the other way around.

    "God blessed them and said to them, 'Be fruitful and increase in number, fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.' Then God said, 'I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food.' And it was so." 
    Genesis 1: 28- 30

    I'm kinda sick and tired of the "save the earth-- recycle, donate money to save the rainforest, starve yourself to feed a panda" craze. God will destroy more of the earth than we EVER will, so I say don't worry about it.

    "The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned upp, and all the green grass was burned up. The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, an third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed."
    Revelation 8: 7- 9

    So there ya have it-- the earth won't be destroyed by people, but by GOD at the time of the Tribulation. *This happens after millions of Christians suddenly vanish out of thin air-- the Rapture*

    Anyway, my pet peeve.

  • I can't stand people who litter. There is a story I heard from some person that he started a group of people who would clean up their city by picking up trash. One day there was this guy who threw this cup on the floor that still had some coffee in it. The group of people that I had mentioned earlier picked it up and threw it in the trash. The interesting part was that the guy who littered got mad at the group of people who picked it up. He even took it back from the recycle can and threw it on the floor again and yelled at the people who had picked it up. Then, the other guy I had mentioned earlier who started this group, explained what the group was doing. This is what I remembered from what the person said to me. I don't remember what happened afterward.

  • I hate that people can't seem to sell their stupid gas-hoggers and buy a new FUEL EFFICIENT HYBRID! *Grumble, Grumble*


    I just get sick of the way the ugly, thick, black smoke comes out of those cars and factories. What is wrong with our society?!

  • Littering. Seriously.....how hard is it to throw something away? Nobody wants to see a bunch of trash laying around. I can't stand slobs. Also, polluting the lakes and rivers. I want to see clean, clear water that I can be perfectly comfortable wading and fishing in. More should be done about air pollution as well.

  • I can't stand it when people don't choose to recycle, even at the most convenient times! At my college, the recycling bins are placed right by the garbage cans, and people still throw away recyclable goods! What the heck, man?!
  • I believe that littering has to be the worst thing I can think of at this very moment...Does anyone really find it soo difficult to hold a piece of trash until they reach a garbage can? Can it not sit beside you on the carseat until you are at your'e destination? Sure you may say ," well thats what they have city workers for and inmates etc and parks depts....OMG...PLzzzz.Maybe we would have more money to run our cities properly if we didn't have to pay so much for this work to be done...and is it ever truly done? While they sit down after 4 hrs of work and get pd for 8 ,now thats waste [litter] management at it's very worst....Oh..Okay I'm rambling....
  • Littering! I cannot stand a litterer. It makes everything look so dirty. I actually want to enjoy looking at the planet I live on, thank you very much.
