U.S. Is World’s Biggest Producer of Plastic Waste

U.S. Is World’s Biggest Producer of Plastic Waste thumbnail

The United States is the world’s leader in the generation of plastic waste, nearly all from fossil fuels, and must develop a plan to curb its destructive impacts on the health of oceans and marine wildlife, concludes a new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.

The first recommendation of the committee of academic experts who wrote the report is that the U.S. stop producing so much plastic, especially non-reusable materials or plastics that are not “practically recyclable,” Inside Climate News reported. The report also proposed a national cap on the production of virgin plastics.

“The developing plastic waste crisis has been building for decades,” the study said, as reported by The Washington Post. “The success of the 20th century miracle invention of plastics has also produced a global scale deluge of plastic waste seemingly everywhere we look.”

“[T]he committee was able to conclude that while only 4.3 percent of the world’s population lives in the United States, the nation was the top generator of plastic waste, producing 42 million metric tons in 2016, with per person plastic waste generation at 287 pounds,” reported James Bruggers of Inside Climate News.

“The fundamental problem here is that plastics are accumulating in the natural environment, including in the ocean,” said Margaret Spring, Monterey Bay Aquarium’s chief conservation officer and chair of the report committee, said in a telephone interview, Inside Climate News reported. Plastics are “pervasive and persistent environmental contaminants,” Spring said, and the problem is “going to continue unless we change — we have to change. And that’s just the truth.”

“A lot of U.S. focus to date has been on the cleaning it up part. There needs to be more attention to the creation of plastic,” Spring said, as reported by The Washington Post.

“We suggest that one way to reduce plastic waste would be to make less plastic,” oceanographer and report co-author Kara Lavender Law said, as reported by The Associated Press. “Recycling cannot manage the vast majority of the plastic waste that we generate.”

“The panel provided a menu of potential ways to fix the plastics problem, starting with ‘national goals and strategies to cap or reduce virgin plastic production,” as Seth Borenstein of the Associated Press reported.

“Virgin plastic is plastic that starts from feedstock that hasn’t been used — namely, non-recycled material. The problem, the report said, is that ‘virgin plastic prices are artificially low due to fossil fuel subsidies, therefore virgin plastics are more profitable to produce’ — and U.S. manufacturing of them continues to increase,” Borenstein reported.

In Congress’ recently passed $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill, there was division concerning plastics reform, with industry-friendly lawmakers supporting “advanced recycling,” as Inside Climate News reported.

“Environmental advocates find the industry’s touting of ‘advanced recycling’ a form of greenwashing — making an official stance seem more environmentally friendly than it actually is — and say it is continuing the nation’s reliance on fossil fuels,” reported James Bruggers of Inside Climate News.

“When you reduce plastics production, there are less air toxins and greenhouse gases,” which are often a problem in or near low income communities or communities of color, said former Environmental Protection Agency regional administrator and president of environmental group Beyond Plastic, Judith Enck, as reported by Inside Climate News. Enck added that low recycling rates add to landfills and incinerators and that these are likely to be located in these communities.

    You all get executed except a few selected ones.

    One of the four beasts saying,
    ‘Come and see.’ and I saw, and behold a white horse”

    “And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts
    And I looked, and behold a pale horse
    And his name that sat on him was death, and hell followed with him”

    Single-use plastics are the worst of this poison. Throw-away bottles and packaging wreak havoc everywhere, but Business-As-Usual seeks not to diminish, but to increase the lethal danger to the global environment.

    The time is long past when we should have ended this lucrative death chain and the politicians it supports.

    But don’t expect that to happen any time soon.

    They use the financial system to push big themes in earth. For example, they decide to push for internet commence. They build up a guy like Jeff Bezos using the electronics media and the big mutual funds like BlackRock, Vanguard, State Union provide the money.

    Same thing with Elon Mush, You destroy the financial system, you make it more difficult for them to push agenda on earth like electronic commerce, globalization and so on.

    We need to start attacking and destroying reputation of big business man like Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Bankers and so on

    I had another sex session with my spirit. It is really something for the GOD. It is because my human body is transforming into something else, most likely an lightbody, that I believe we are made of energy and we have parasite stealing energy from us.

    I just came back from the grocery store. Saw two old man with their face completely red, the whole skin in their head was red. Mass execution have begun. Father and I will make the DNA modification on the facial skin.

    Earth is such a fuckin shit hole. Everyone living in the energetic cloud will benefit from the extinction of the archons and the destruction of earth. If the earth is destroy the archons will die because they have nobody to extract energy from.

    Mass execution of people on earth with deadly facial skin cancer had begun. Only a few selected ones (between 20 and 100 only) will be given a lightbody. The rest of you on earth die.

    World wide global cooling is an assurance police to assure a total destruction or any life on earth. No GOD will ever have his creation destroyed,, modified or taken advantage of by Archons anymore. We are cleaning the energy field so creative GOD can create with peace of mind.

    There is interesting crap there.

    Many of us cannot manifest our divine purpose and destiny projects until this alignment and embodiment of our Oversoul or Monad transpires.

    This why this song was suggested to me. I was meant to be here, that was my divine purpose.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtGjJVcrKQU

    I still hate you and I hate the concept of life, any form of life

    —————————————–
    Many of us cannot manifest our divine purpose and destiny projects until this alignment and embodiment of our Oversoul or Monad transpires. Our divine purpose is part and parcel of our divine consciousness and we cannot manifest purpose without our spirit intelligence embodied. Many of us have been searching for our “purpose” when we actually should be working to free and embody our spiritual bodies. We cannot live our true purpose until we are embodied in our Monadic spirit intelligence.

    I still hate you and I might work toward your total annihilations. I don’t give a shit that you are the supreme GOD

    I might work toward destroying everything you are.

    Our Soul and Monad is a family of consciousness that contains extensions that are existing simultaneously in other dimensional timelines.

    I connect to other dimensional timelines using telepathy and YouTube. I think so. So I might really be at that Monad state.
    —————————————
    when we intend to connect with the organic architecture of our Christos Blueprint, this helps to heal and integrate our soul extensions and monadic extensions. Our Soul and Monad is a family of consciousness that contains extensions that are existing simultaneously in other dimensional timelines. The first level of spiritual Awakening is connecting with our soul consciousness and extensions, our soul family is comprised of 12 different individual personalities. As we integrate our Soul consciousness, we integrate these 12 aspects within our consciousness body, and this unifies the triad of the entire Soul Matrix, so that we experience our emotions and the forces of love in entirely new ways.

    The Power Elite are a small group of people who act as the main Controllers of our world. They conjure Black Magic through dark rituals that are used for maintaining contact with the NAA, in order to control the entire planet through the manipulation of the Collective Consciousness through fear based programming that is transmitted via Mind Control. To reinforce the fear programming and keep the population in a vibration of fear and separation, they organized an complex system of global institutions to act as the primary enforcer of the propagation of the Disinformation that they use to influence people to self-enforce the belief systems that shape the Controlled Narrative of the 3D reality. The Power Elite are known to also be referred to as the Dark Cabal, Controllers or those entities running the Shadow Government.

  21. IAmHereToRestoreTheIntegrityOfTheEnergyField on Wed, 8th Dec 2021 10:08 pm 

    I will do what is expected of me and cleanup the earth energy field so other GOD can create with peace of mind without being afraid of having their creation hijack, modifed or destroy by Archons.

    I am here to clean up the whole energy field and execute people, All people of earth will be executed using deadly facial skin cancer except a few selected individual (between 20 to 100) will be given a lighbody, the rest of earth will suffer a painful death.

  22. MyRevengeAgaisntBoth on Thu, 9th Dec 2021 5:09 am 

    I finally found a way to get revenge against both of my enemies: Archons and higher’ GOD who have created humans. I refuse to create a new earth for humans. Since I am the only one that has something to propose, this means the extinctions of all humans, therefore getting my revenge against higher’GOD for who humans are needed to keep life going forward in the universe

    Since Archons existence is dependent on the numbers of humans, no humans, no archons, therefore achieving my goal of Archons exterminations.

  23. IHavewarnedYou on Thu, 9th Dec 2021 6:23 pm 

    Another thing, like I said, I am not interested to become a GOD. If you force me to do it, I might rebel and try to destroy other GOD and other GOD creation as revenge. I might cause you a lot of trouble. It might be better to give up for both of us. I die as a man and become nothing, you find someone else for your ascension. Dont complain if I revolt in the energy field and try to destroy you and everything you built. You might want to look for another candidate.
