the Summer serial in the media are the seagulls. Gulls building nests, laying eggs, protecting kids and trying to get food. All together to the annoyance of the people.
An image in a news that is meant to describe the suffering of the people should instead arouse our empathy. A hungry gråmåke sitting in front of a bench and looks pleading at people enjoying themselves with ice.Gull glued to the ground
has lost its a food source. Overfishing and climate change have led to poor nutrient supply in the ocean, fiskeavfallet be taken on land to be cultivated and in addition is the ocean filled with plastics and pollutants. It is hungry and hoping for a few crumbs.
But the article is not about it. It's all about that people don't get to eat his ice cream in peace. People who have never experienced hunger, who do not know what it is, living in abundance, where a third of all food is thrown, also a third of all fish taken out of the sea, and there also fiskeavfallet be done out of the reach of seabirds.

My sympathy goes to the little gråmåka. It probably didn't, and that if it managed to nip to a ice, are portrayed as a "terrorist". The who may not have a future if we fail to slow climate change and stop over-fishing and reducing by nature.
it is Hoped that the evolution will produce more empathetic and less selfish people. If not, there is not much hope.Turn On the LydErrorAllerede plus customer?
