Of COURSE we do!!!
In ANY OTHER INDUSTRY it would be called "RECYCLING" and would be REQUIRED.
Its just like plastics (bags) and landfills! ---- in the green lexicon
THAT is BAD.
BUT also in the green view carbon should be put into a form that cannot
be degraded and buried away - and THAT is called sequestration!
So then - isn't the MAIN element in plastic Carbon?? Isn't the issue
that it won't bio degrade?? Isn't that why its not supposed to be buried??
AND - if it were degradable .... isn't degradation oxidation and isn't
that burning and and isn't that bad? What's the difference burning it
fast or slow?
I think the Greens have the ultimate lock on "fuzzy logic"!
