This 6-Year-Old Has a Message for People Who Are Rude to the Planet

One 6-year-old boy has said what many have been thinking about polluters and people who disrespect the environment. Henry, who after watching a video at school of a bird eating plastic, broke down on his car ride home ranting about people "just being rude" to the planet. His mom caught it on video, which has now gone viral.

This little boy is wise beyond his years and carries an important message. "The planet is going to be wrecked," he said while crying.

"They throw trash on the ground, they cut down trees," he continues. "They make forests into places ... into roads."

Henry isn't all talk either. He's taken it upon himself to patrol the forest near his house for trash. He also has some tough words for polluters.

"I could just call them dumb people or maybe even a bad word," he said.

In December of 1924, the heads of all the major lightbulb manufacturers across the world met in Geneva to concoct a sinister plan. Their talks outlined limits on how long all of their lightbulbs would last. The idea is that if their bulbs failed quickly customers would have to buy more of their product. In this video, we're going to unpack this idea of purposefully creating inferior products to drive sales, a symptom of late-stage capitalism that has since been coined planned obsolescence. And as we'll see, this obsolescence can have drastic consequences on our wallets, waste streams, and even our climate.
