It's like a lack of object permanence in the brain when people do that. "It's cold today where I am therefore THE ENTIRE WORLD."


It can be fun when someone does the "It's freezing here in December in Tennessee, lol" To hand them a weather report from Juneau, Alaska where it's 12C / 55F and raining. "Look at Alaska! This single data point beats your single data point up!"

The header image, subtitled "Representational image" is not representative of microplastics. Looks more like beach rubbish.

Lazy selection of images on web posts is far more serious than the destruction of our environment.

If I am going to be killed by microplastics, I should at least know what they look like.
