Plastics have an insanely negative impact on endocrinial functions, most notably testosterone production. May be a correlation between the absolute explosion of # of queer people in the 21st century & the fact that we're being fed literal poison.

The plastic we have produced is equal to all the human weight combined. I think we should make a affordable 3d printer that takes plastic and could make things that are useful for us

That is a really great Video like always and the information are completely true. Plastic is a great material for everything but we should used with more respect and don't throw it away like right now. From a technical engineer in plastic student.

Yeah plastic pollution is a problem for the humanity but it's still complicated.[We cannot live without plastic.{The plastics are spoiling our environment in a less extent For example the production of plastic bags releases less amount of CO2 than the cotton bags.}

we should somehow find a way to launch the plastic into space, or to get rid of it in some safe way.. not by moving backwards 100 years and using old bags which take up a lot more resources then the plastic ones

Ah yes, please continue to try to shame the west about pollution when in reality the vast majority doesn't come from us ( 90% of pollution into the ocean comes from rivers in Asia and Africa). This Video should be translated into Chinese. (not that I don't think pollution isn't bad)
Shina (13 дней назад)
it isn't only the consumers that should help the environment. It is not only us that should stop using plastic. Gigantic companies. Factories. We all have no choice but to use plastic that is forced to us by packaging. Remember, consumer environmentalism is not the only solution. We need big-shot rich people and companies to help with decreasing the need for plastic such as finding alternatives.

Your solution to China polluting so much was to bribe them to pollute less? Gee I wonder what effect that would have? China would increase waste output for lower costs, in addition to realization they can blackmail the rest of the world with their trash indefinitely.

The source of the problem is relying on money, like many things, money is too important, encapsulated everything. Money is the number one of problems, money is now an unlimited resource instead (thanks to banks) and an endless request and on demand, without money you are nobody. Costs, taxes, rent etc, you need money everywhere and for everything, breathing air is free, all other things are not. Humans created this unnatural requirement, money=power. Crime (in any form or by any means) is also a result of money, 99% of crime is related to money. People do everthing for money (included short term and stupid things), because it is so powerful and is required all of the time. Polution is a crime, a result of saving costs. Producing plastic is cheap (main reason) so it is used for everything to save costs or maximize revenue. Again, it is all about money. The only way to break this irresponsible behaviour is to dismantle the power of money by stabalize the need of money. Solve problems by starting at the source and do not try to fight against the result, doesn't work (there are many examples to prove this), no sypthom combat. Start to introduce a basic income for everyone as a human right, no one needs to work at (environmental) risky or dangerous jobs for a few cents each hour to get an income (for example in india). Most people do their job because there is no choice, they can't say no. Manufacturers need to be forced to change, better quality jobs and more responsability to environment, I think this is the only way to do this. Power down the power of money, it helps to focus on and solve real problems.
