Imagine a World Without Plastic Debris … Say No to Plastics

There was a time, not that long ago when you would see countless cigarette butts littering the landscape. But then, something happened ever so slowly, the ugly disgusting cigarette butts began disappearing from bars and restaurants, parking lots, sidewalks, beaches, ashtrays in public and private buildings.

People finally got the message that smoking was not only not cool but was detrimental to health of everyone surrounded by the smoker.

Is It Time For a Worldwide Ban on Single-use Plastic Bags?

Let me state for the record, that with few exceptions, I do not like governmental bans or restrictions on personal behavior. […] There are, however, exigent circumstances when the harm being done is so massive that intervention in the form of bans is necessary. So it is with the worldwide pollution caused by the indiscriminate use of plastics for convenience rather than necessity.

Will We Finally Get Serious About “Saying No to Plastic” in 2014?

Will 2014 be the year we finally get serious about, “Saying NO to Plastics”?

Forget the hokum about global warming. Plastic pollution can be seen everywhere. This problem is here now not some place in the distant future.

The vast amount of plastic trash that enters the oceans is a real problem, a problem that grows ever omnipresent on a hourly basis.

The US Costly Addiction to Plastic; Beijing Bans US Imports of Trash!

Operation Green Fence, a campaign by Chinese customs to strictly enforce laws governing the import of waste, “could be a game changer,” says Doug Kramer, president of Kramer Metals, an international scrap dealer in Los Angeles. “A lot of companies have used China as a dumping ground, getting rid of … substandard scrap and trash,” Mr. Kramer says.

The headlines were recently blaring …Beijing bans US imports of trash! That one my friends, is a very big headline. Bet you didn’t know our biggest export to China is our trash!

Yes, we export more trash than soybeans or wheat. It seems, except for green crusaders, very few people, politicians, or people in the MSM want to acknowledge the silent nightmare that plastic trash and garbage presents.

Oh My God, is Global Warming Causing More Vasectomies?

“I just broke down in tears in boarding area at SFO while on phone with my wife. I’ve never cried because of a science report before.”

To which I want to say, “Really, no R_E_A_L_L_Y?” Well, if the slobbering Mr. Holthaus could put his tissues down long enough, maybe he could take the time to read the entire report.

It seems the real story is buried deep inside the IPCC Report, and no wonder.

This is one of the best slide presentations on plastics and the impact they have on our environment you are likely to see. Intelligent and well thought out AND put together by two “green teens” from Green Ambassadors.

Scientists Recommend Classifying Certain Plastic Waste As Toxic Trash

Scientists are now calling for a similar approach to fighting plastic debris and pollution as has been used in the past to fight fluorocarbons and refrigerants worldwide. In particular, they want to classify PVC, polystyrene, polyurethane and polycarbonate as the most hazardous/toxic plastics.

Considering the damage to the environment and the health hazards posed by plastic debris and plastic pollution, many believe this is about time.

Why a Romney Presidency Will Be Better for Jobs & the Environment Than Obama

The constant rhetorical flame throwing on left, riddled with accusations that all conservatives want dirty air, dirty water and to plunder the planet brings nothing but derision and contempt from those who want a better environment tempered with a modicum of practicality. Such is the case of Romney vs Obama and the 2012 election.
