Some really s****y and selfish behaviour by rockfishing anglers at the Hook, Wexford. Take your mess home. Leave no trace. #shameful #fishirl @CleanCoasts Some of this gear is sold locally too. #angling

A fascinating short documentary by Nathan Truesdell about the 1986 Guinness record attempt by the city of Cleveland, Ohio to simultaneously release 1.5 million balloons – a spectacular stunt that turned into an environmental disaster as the city realised it was just littering on a gigantic, wildlife harming, health and safety baiting scale.

So much for the council getting heavy handed with illegal dumpers. This is happening directly opposite a camera (which was either installed by the council or privately, it’s hard to tell).
