    Nàda tòdo lo que suene a Reciclaje es Comunìsmo porque necesìtan mucho dinero para su arrogancia,Ahora van por los ocèanos.Còmo se explicarà a las nuèvas generaciònes que la conservaciòn de nuestro planeta no tiène precio.Asì pretenden hacer creer que encontraràn un Planeta dònde reine el Hombre blanco.Parece que los que han destruìdo la Tierra creen en el Llanero Solitàrio.Lo acabaràn en mènos tièmpo.

    To the hypocritical environmentalists, they should have been worried about what is happening in the DRC. The new children slavery in the cobalt mines, so that you have electric cars. Hypocrites about this, you don´t say anything.

    Whatever we say, will not play any role in any conservation of anything, simply because they're is an economic crisis, all over the globe that's been happening. People are after money because the government said that "we gonna sell it for a lot of money,etc" and the wheel keeps turning.. exploration of the EEC of every country is inevitable. If we care we have to, make sure they follow the rules and laws of the natural conservation and nature itself, and make sure they will not disturb much the sea, because we are the edge of the cliff. The seas are dying

    Now that the Natural Mineral Resources found on land have been extracted and depleted by man and government treasure hunting treasures hunters is mining the nstural resources found in all ocean floor. Not only fish and other marine life found in the ocean even the minerals that can be used to adorn our homes and ourself with expensive corals, pearls and now their mining precious metals like gold, manganese, black sand, no more pirates loots or sunken ship treasures. These are minerals that are naturally deposited over miilion years or thousand or hundred before it becomes a gold ore or any expensive mineral deposit on the ocean floor. A regular or poor fisherman cannot do that mining activities its rich man activities because of lucrative way of getting it out on our ocean.
