    There was a great report on Consumer Reports on plastics. While the main focus of the article could have been about the fact that we consume a credit card's worth of micro and nano plastics, it touches on how industry are still making new plastic rather than recycling it (https://www.consumerreports.org/health-wellness/how-to-eat-less-plastic-microplastics-in-food-water/). One interesting point is that the issue is now more critical because China is no longer willing to recycle the world's plastic.

    Unless our leaders help drive the agenda towards more sustainable future, industry will not move.

    I've always been interested in understanding why someone feels Global Warming is fabricated by a small conspiracy of people.

    My reasoning is that if a gallon of fuel can make a car drive 10 miles more or if humanity can produce stuff that do not eat into natural habitat or if we can heat our houses using less resources why shouldn't we?

    Leaked ExxonMobil Documents Reveal Oil Giant Plans to Increase Annual CO2 Emissions by 17%
    OCT 06, 2020
    [​IMG]
    Leaked internal documents from ExxonMobil reveal the oil giant plans to increase annual carbon dioxide emissions by 17% by 2025. Bloomberg reports Exxon’s plans could add the annual carbon emissions of a country like Greece to the atmosphere, or the equivalent of 26 coal-fired power plants. ExxonMobil’s own scientists have known about the threat of climate change for decades but suppressed the information and have not committed to curbing emissions, even as other major oil companies have announced cuts after massive public pressure campaigns.



    EPA Strips Tribes in Oklahoma of Environmental Regulatory Rights
    OCT 06, 2020
    [​IMG]
    The Environmental Protection Agency has granted Oklahoma environmental regulatory control of nearly all tribal lands in Oklahoma, rolling back sovereign rights for dozens of tribes. The move effectively cancels out many rights that would have been gained after a landmark Supreme Court ruling earlier this year asserted about half of Oklahoma remains Native American land, recognizing a 19th century U.S. treaty with the Muscogee (Creek) Nation. In a statement to news outlet The Young Turks, Casey Camp-Horinek of the Ponca Tribe of Oklahoma said, “After over 500 years of oppression, lies, genocide, ecocide, and broken treaties, we should have expected the EPA ruling in favor of racist Governor Stitt of Oklahoma, yet it still stings.”

    Surely, this will do a world of good.... ermmm... to the world??? Like Hell!!!!

    Fact -.The earth / biosphere is dieing
    Fact - The governments of the world are not realy doing anything to stop it . Just actionism and blah blah . For instance they could say today ........ from now on all companys have a duty to cut their emisions , to use recyclable materials , to use as little packaging material as possible ....... but they dont ..................



    The pregnant questions are WHY ? ...... and ........ What are the unavoidable consequencys of their ( action ) / inaction ? / Where will it lead us ?

    Some people credit de source because of Good Manners ;) Apparently You Don't have any manners :mad:

    Citing: Identifying In-Text Sources. Once you have brought source material into your writing (via quotation, summary, or paraphrase), your next task is to cite or identify it. This is essential because giving credit to the creator of the source material helps you avoid plagiarism.

    I'll let you GOOGLE dat youself :p
