Morons: The ‘misplaced’ focus on plastics recycling
Posted on November 10, 2022
Yeah that’s it – dump it all in the oceans so it ends up on beaches worldwide.
Can anyone get any more stupid? As a William Devane movie character once said: Do not shit where you live.
Japan recycles 100% of its plastics – in fact it’s illegal to throw plastics in the trash in Japan.
Japan takes the used plastic, melts it down, and uses it for things like road pavement reinforcement which prevents cracking of roads – and the gravel that comes with it. Japanese roads are spotless.
MSM + gov’t are morons. It would be easy to create a plastics recycling industry.
In places like NY trash isn’t thrown in landfills – it’s put on barges and dumped in the ocean where most of the dumped plastics end up on beaches around the world. South American beaches are covered in plastics from the wasteful dumb gringos up north.
Not to mention that burying it in a landfill might even be more expensive than recycling – huge fossil-fuel-burning excavators are required to run landfills – not to mention prehistoric garbage trucks which have to be used to haul it to dumps – which burn even more fossil fuels to get it there.
Japan has little micro-garbage trucks that haul all plastics to cracking towers where it is burned, and reused. There is no pollution because the cracking towers capture all the emissions too. There is no smog generated by Japan’s cracking towers. The whole thing runs like a Swiss watch and Japan is clean and beautfiul.
