YouTuber Tries to Soak up a Pool Using 1,000,000 Paper Towels:
While throwing the rolls into the poll, he says, "We’re destroying these paper towel rolls right now. We’re still barely making a dent into this moist swimming pool.

As criticisms mounted on the YouTuber he defended himself saying "these paper towels existed independently of whether or not I would have used them". He said, "These paper towels existed and would have been used at some point in the foreseeable future. But yes, perhaps, I had a micro impact on the demand for paper towels throughout the entire paper towel industry. Who knows." Later, Oliveira accepted that he "may not have considered it’s net consequence on the Earth," but people failed "to reflect on their own respective impact, and are just as guilty".
