kyle miller That's because China has some of the strictest rules (considering the state they are in now... they are the only developed country so utterly dependent on coal so any change would be hard)

See I agree that the problem is complicated, but I don't think that the complexity of the issue is what's really stopping us from fixing it. Humans are smart, look at our mathematicians and phycists: when they want to solve incredible problems they can do amazing things. We're not fixing the pollution problem because the powerful people know its more profitable in the short term to ignore it, and our world revolves around money. If we fix that problem, and structure our world so that the people in charge actually, genuinely have the interests of everyone at heart, then I think we'll find that these problems are well within our means of fixing.

Don't eat fish. Fishing is responsible for the vast majority of plastic in the oceans, bycatch of marine mammals (dolphins, whales, et cetera.), massive species extinction, and ocean deadzones. Please, avoid animal and fish products whenever possible.

I would not say the best way to prevent food from spoil is using plastic. Bread- put a little towel (or any material ) on it, it wont get dry. For other product - glass containers + fridge is perfect combination. :)

Big shock. Chinese are causing the most plastic waste and yet the USA is the only one who takes any shit over waste. I hate this Anti-American world we live in. Perhaps it's better off if we do eat toxic plastics and let the Earth retake us.

Microbes are you serious? Geez, it wasn't like we didn't already have many ways to die already that plastic was made to cause cancer, kill animals, pollute the world and what not. Wish someone would take a step to do something. The big problem is, we didn't take plastic as some material like wood, rather we started building our lives around it. Its like you had built a spiralling staircase around a tower and now, it is going to more harder to destroy the tower without destroying the staircase. Take the staircase as humans and the tower as plastic. Now, if we try remove plastic or ban it, its going to really hard to do so. Companies like Cocoa Cola, Starbucks, etc depend on the plastic for their profit. So, a normal human trying to do something like banning it would probably require huge support from people around the globe. Even for a President of a country it would be a extreme task.

Hey. I've been an unseen fan for a year now... I'd like to know about electrical history. Specifically where and how the first energy sources were used and as well as how they developed into what it is now. Explain resisters. Compaiter, how we farm and store electricity, the first battery. Ect ect. It'd be a good video, I'm sure! Im about 90% sure i won't get a response let alone a video for this, but being a fan for awhile, I figured at least I'd try. Thanks for the knowlage you spread and i hope to see more from you soon!!

Poor sea turtles, think plastic bags are jellyfish their main food source. So sad when sea creatures die of starvation with stomachs full of plastic. 💔🧜‍♀️🌊🌏 The BEST way to keep good fresh and not waste it isn’t to wrap it in plastic.... it’s to GROW YOUR OWN! This is why I boycott Trader Joe’s food. It’s ALL wrapped in plastic and offensive to me. Never fully ripe. Often simultaneously unripe and also bruised and rotting (how?) They do NOT care about sourcing products from sustainable fisheries....(Seafood Watch App helps me make better consumer choices for sustainable seafood...being a mermaid, I LOVE seafood but...I don’t want it to run completely out by 2050 or sooner!💔) And most everything has a huge carbon footprint because it’s not sourced locally either. I basically only use them for wine. So..... seriously....Trader Joes may be cheap and convenient in the short run but...in the long run they are NOT friendly to our long term sustainability as people on Earth. Like everyone else I’m busy struggling to make a living and havent had much time to make my channels what I’m going for but...Im still done with excuses and making time where I can to start working more on it. ✌️💕✨🧜‍♀️🌊🌏 Even small changes can make a big difference. We can’t give up. There’s still hope. Studying the problems for so long is one of the many reasons and ways I actually became severely depressed. I have been recovering and on a healing journey...and becoming an Art-based activist is one way I can feel like I make a difference and not lose hope or give up. I could’ve just died of shame...but...I’m still alive. We can’t avoid having some impact, even some negative impact in living. We just need to make a better effort to make our positive impact outweigh that, and make our lives, lives of service. Otherwise, what are we here for?
Please do a video on graphene and where the technology is.

Someone JUST turned me onto this channel :) I got my degree in Environmental Studies (BA) and have learned and cared about these issues for a long time. I’m not as tech savvy or pro as this guy but I DO intend to start sharing more on my channel....I’m into health, fitness, sustainability, and art mainly singing. Mermaid on the side....and that endeavor is dedicated to raising awareness for Ocean issues and conservation :) I’m far from perfect but I’m about this shit! I used to run a delivery juicing service here in the Bay Area, I bottled in glass mason jars and did jar recycling, and always had a mason jar on me, which let me skip a lot of coffee cups plastic and paper. Good conversation starter too bc people often asked me “what’s in the jar?” 😜 I never thought it made THAT big of a difference but when I don’t have a jar on me, im amazed by how the cups pile up. So even 1 small change CAN actually make a big difference especially if we multiply that effect by how many millions of us there are. As far as reusable wrapping goes.... there’s a cool new product/Co. I stumbled on called Etee - basically a waxed cotton fabric that is moldable, holds its shape and even water tight. Looks cool! If anyone cares to support a teeny tiny baby channel/ new still aspiring artist/entrepreneur/clean/sustainable hippy.... all are welcome! 💕🌈 won’t be as fancy as this guy but.... I’m a singing mermaid so... there’s some magic in store, same name on IG. Blessings! ✨😊😋💕✌️🌊🧜‍♀️ 💋
