  • Is the debt bubble supporting the world economy in danger of collapsing? 17 maj, 2022
    With an ever-lower cost of debt, the economy has had a hidden tailwind pushing it long between 1981 to 2020. Now that interest rates are again rising, the danger is that a substantial portion of this debt bubble may collapse. My concern is that the economy may be headed for an incredibly hard landing because […]

    Buried in the comments of the last post we discussed human overshoot and what should be done about it.

My view, in summary, is that when […]

Plast och klimatet.

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Radio Ecoshock intervjuade Carroll Muffett från Center for International Environmental Law, CIEL om plastens betydelse och hur industrin försöker att få användningen av plast att öka. I Paris överenskommelsen från 2015 så skulle vi hålla oss under 2°C och helst under 1,5°C. Om nu plastindustrin klarar sina mål så kommer inte Parismålet att hålla heller. Detta eftersom plast görs till 99% av fossila bränslen.

Till detta kommer alla andra problem som fotosyntesen i haven. Som rapporten skriver:

Laboratory experiments suggest this plastic pollution can reduce the ability of phytoplankton to fix carbon through photosynthesis. They also suggest that plastic pollution can reduce the metabolic rates, reproductive success, and survival of zooplankton that transfer the carbon to the deep ocean. Research into these impacts is still in its infancy, but early indications that plastic pollution may interfere with the largest natural carbon sink on the planet…

Även bioplast är det problem med som tas upp i denna podcast från Radio Ecoshock.
