Money rules the world and the rest of us fall in line, except for Media and Kip Andersen who decided to expose all the dirty secrets. I hear a lot of people saying that they avoid the news, because all it contains is problems, like Covid and gun violence, but nothing will ever change if you burry your head in the sand. I watched Seaspiracy on Netflix last night which uncovers the Fishing Industry’s environmental secrets. This guy Kip loves the ocean, so he decides to make a documentary about all the wonders that it holds, but he gets sidetracked when all these whales wash up on the beach dead and their bellies are filled with plastic bags. Now he is worried that plastic is the biggest problem that the world is facing and he wants to do something about it. He meets this guy who tells him about these dolphins disappearing in Japan and this makes him want to investigate what is actually going on there, as everybody loves dolphins.
One thing keeps leading to another, but Kip is relentless and he follows all the tracks to get to the bottom of this. He discovers that there are a bunch of groups who are claiming the be protectors of the ocean, but in fact they are profiting off its demise. They claim to care, but in order to exist, they have to get donations, and these are coming from the Fishing Industry who seems to be corrupt as hell. It is horrifying what is happening and we need to do something about this before all life on Earth disappears.
