Sure we'll all go extinct, but it'll be totally worth it 'cause I got a small tax cut!

A big part of plastic waste that makes it into the oceans comes from disorganised 3rd world countries who have very little infrastructure to deal with waste - even land-fill would be better than simply letting most of it wash into the oceans. I'm not playing the blame game, I know that they don't have the economic resources to deal with this - it might be a useful project for overseas aid.

More generally, people see the enormous problems created when plastic waste goes into rivers, lakes and oceans, and the reflex solution in first world countries is a combination of using less plastic, and recycling what remains. Of course this is a good thing, but they usually miss the biggest issue, letting waste of all sorts into the oceans in the first place. Plastic that goes into landfill, even if recycling is a better option overall, at least doesn't end up in the guts of marine animals...

I blame the whale. Whales are intelligent enough to discern plastic from food. This feckless slacker was probably relying on the welfare of other whales who, being the rational self-interested individuals that all aquatic mammals are via accordance with Natural Lawtm, applied social Darwinistic principles in teaching the ungrateful cunt a lesson. That he died was his own fault.

Had a taste for plastic. When the interest rates shot up, took on more plastic rather than curbing the enthusiasm. Old story.

Surely the solution to this problem is deregulation and tax cuts.

right wingers making up shit on polar bears with no report cited

https://godfatherpolitics.com/climate-p ... opulation/
https://www.narcity.com/ca/nu/canadians ... me-with-it

there was an actual newsworthy item this week
“Despite having about one month less time on preferred sea-ice habitats to hunt compared with 25 years ago, we found that the Chukchi Sea subpopulation was doing well from 2008 to 2016,” Eric Regehr, a biologist at the University of Washington’s Polar Science Center, said today in a news release.

Regehr is the principal author of a study about the census published in the open-access journal Scientific Reports. The census, conducted by researchers from UW and federal agencies, chronicles a decade’s worth of observations — and delves into why the Chukchi Sea bears seem to be faring better than their cousins elsewhere.

Make America brain-damaged again!

Trump’s EPA Just Made Its Final Decision Not to Ban a Pesticide That Hurts Kids’ Brains
https://www.motherjones.com/environment ... ds-brains/
The pesticide in question, chlorpyrifos, is a nasty piece of work. It’s an organophosphate, a class of bug killers that work by “interrupting the electrochemical processes that nerves use to communicate with muscles and other nerves,” as the Pesticide Encyclopedia puts it. Chlorpyrifos is also an endocrine disrupter, meaning it can cause “adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune effects,” according to the National Institutes of Health.

Major studies from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, the University of California-Davis, and Columbia University have found strong evidence that low doses of chlorpyrifos inhibits kids’ brain development, including when exposure occurs in the womb, with effects ranging from lower IQ to higher rates of autism. Several studies—examples here, here, and here—have found it in the urine of kids who live near treated fields. In 2000, the EPA banned most home uses of the chemical, citing risks to children.
And here’s the dirt on the relationship between President Donald Trump and the company that markets the chemical:
Dow AgroSciences’ parent company, Dow Chemical, has also been buttering up Trump. The company contributed $1 million to the president’s inaugural committee, the Center for Public Integrity notes. In December, Dow Chemical Chairman and CEO Andrew Liveris attended a post-election Trump rally in the company’s home state of Michigan, and used the occasion to announce plans to create 100 new jobs and bring back another 100 more from foreign subsidiaries. Around the same time, Trump named Liveris chair of the American Manufacturing Council, declaring the chemical exec would “find ways to bring industry back to America.” (Dow has another reason beside chlorpyrifos’ fate to get chummy with Trump: its pending mega-merger with erstwhile rival DuPont, which still has to clear Trump’s Department of Justice.)
Since the 2017 chlorpyrifos decision, the administration has approved the Dow-Dupont merger, and named several former Dow execs to high posts within the US Department of Agriculture.
