plastics recycling is mostly pretence.

I’d like to think I’m wrong but I doubt it, most plastic is not recyclable, its just heaps of unmanageable crap, plain and simple and often is transported to another unseen country across the planet. Its too small its too jumbled and of too great a volume to be capable of micro-processed to any satisfactory level, the economics of it do just not work for an ethical outcome.

What really bugs me is endlessly there is never any mention of the profound difference between thermoplastics and thermo-setting plastics, the same difference as a vacuum formed food tray and a resin/phenolic based fibreglass component. Some will reform and some just char and become useless. This is day one hour one of any materials course at day release technical college or thirteen year old  science / chemistry school lesson and is utterly fundamental to any consideration or  understanding of how to recycle.

Not exactly the clearest explanation … https://www.difference.wiki/thermoplastics-vs-thermosetting-plastics/

Its also fundamental we navigate away from short life throw away food and provisions that arrive in such small and tricky to recycle packaging.  Its also endemic with pharmaceutical and say vetinary products, often over-designed and plastics technology gone mad. It is the smallness itself of the discarded parts being part of the problem. In my own lifetime I can remember Co-op blue paper bags for dry goods, filled as required when out shopping. In a sense our own disaster is written into the so-called present day solutions we have arrived at.

Food is over-packaged and too few people cook from scratch.

Here below is the article that prompted me to write this post … https://unearthed.greenpeace.org/2019/07/01/for-the-sake-of-the-climate-we-must-stop-believing-magical-stories-about-plastics-and-recycling/

 

lines in the sky, trump, whacky UK politics …

Friday and at most breaks in the lower cloud here north east England I can see chemtrail. Several previous days of dark cloud and rain forbid any such sightings. And as per last year this time ie middle May to June we seemed to be given a break from such things. So I guess from now on here in north east England it’ll be busier for seeing lines in the sky and yes next morning Saturday its an aluminised sky and at first opening of my eyes …. chemtrail.

Britain is going down the pan, the comedical notion of even a summer recess for politicians when they should be working overtime is tragic farce. All sort of pointless anyway when one observes the mire of Parliament; sense, good reason and getting things done has evaporated to leave partisan self-interest, obstruction and pandering to a very questionable four percent swing that does not warrant both the present and forthcoming turmoil. Brexit will be the death of so much of UK industry and financial, you can wave goodbye to the UK car industry and its supply chain. I actually think Theresa May did as best as could be done with such an emotive intractable conundrum as Brexit and shame upon Corbyn for basically doing nothing but harp, carp and obfuscate.

trump waves good bye to another liar, SHS …. and this week his talk of welcoming dirt from foreign interests unglues his many months of denying he never colluded. trump certainly brings nothing but shame and scandal to the Office of President, even to the hallowed and famous desk which for a small number of hours each week he seats himself, not reading anything, disregarding experts and phoning buddies as if still a teenager. Wheres Ivanka and Melania? … oh yes they are in make-up, wardrobe, spa, sauna, beautician, hairdresser, bespoke fitting, therapist, dietician, grooming, personal shopper etc etc etc …..

Theres also some chemtrail in the Baltic, some west of Sweden …

Lastly, a well presented resume of the fix we are in re climate change, presenting well the idea that not all inhabitants of this planet are hooked into cars and consumerism. Note the harrowing information that Albatross will bring anything red back to their chicks ‘as food’ including red plastic Coca-Cola bottle tops.

At 12:30 below we see the opened gut of a dead Albatross full of plastic crap.
