Containerships full of our shit

In case you weren’t already painfully aware of the amount of consumption going on in the world, I created this handy visual aid based on shots from the observation deck at the far end of one of Hong Kong International Airport’s terminals.

I also saw one while still in the air on the way in to the city. From my window seat I could see islands, the new Hong Kong-Zhuhai- Macao Bridge, and then a containership that was as large as the island I’d just seen, with no meaningful difference in distance.
