Green skeptics. I ain’t one of them. The world is getting a dirtier, meaner place day by day.


Population of Java 200 years ago: 5 million. Tigers seen on the rail journey from Jakarta to Surabaya. Now the population of Java is 130 million and rising. The population of Jakarta is now 8 million. By 2020 it will be 20 million.


The latest research shows the oceans are been raped at an unsustainable pace:


Roughly one-third of seafood species have collapsed so far. That means their catch has declined 90 percent below the historic maximum. Of these sea species, seven percent have become extinct.


And if the current trends continue, 100 percent of species will collapse by the year 2048 or around then.


Meanwhile, elephants are killing villagers in North Sumatra. Not that they are violent creatures mind you, but due to our stupidity they have no where else to go, as their habitats are shrinking fast due to illegal logging and land clearing.


Anyway, here’s a painting for ya to look at:


Wonderful art or just a load of old Pollocks?


Well the latter in my opinion. I mean art is supposed to move you for God’s sake. Elicit an emotional response. Make you feel happy, sad, amazed, angry. But this? I wouldn’t even put it up in my house if someone paid me to. Utter rubbish.


And you know how much it sold for yesterday?


US$140 million!!!!!!!!
