The fungus that devours plastic seems to have been a useful discovery. I wish it could be transplanted in Malta as I can't bear to see the countryside littered with plastic beverage bottles!

I am most alarmed by the Congo and Cambodia. Poor people need the money but the entire world need nature to remain undisturbed.
