Who the hell is giving money for such stupid-silly-damned researches?!!! WE DO NOT NEED PLASTIC BAGS!!! Because when PEAK ALL is coming, there will be NO MORE PLASTIC BAGS, thank God! And when the oil industry cannot produce them anymore... you leave your car on the roadside and have a look around if you can find some litter or what?? so stupid...

interesting, but it doesn't excuse our continuing to use them.....just another way to recycle them....

Honestly i'l love to see a universal ban on all plastic bags--no exception. These bags are a MENACE.

fan-tas-tic (ultra-hyper-B...$...!) !

" We wouldn't be the first life-form to wipe itself out. But what would be unique about us is that we did it knowingly. ... Why didn't we save ourselves when we had the chance? Is the answer: because, on some level, we weren't sure if we'd be worth saving? " -- 'The Archivist of the Future' in "The Age of Stupid" (2009) -- (imho:) *highly recommendable*

(doubleplusUN)well, methinks, whereas (some of) us believing we weren't worth saving does contribute a bit, there's a much more, i.e. orders-of-magnitude more, important reason: the tendency... no (that'd be much to weak!): the urge we all feel (more or less, at times) and which has grown to an anankastic compulsion in all-too-many... this neurotic obsession to avoid the inconvenient truth, to avoid it at all costs (Et après nous le déluge!), to evade it by focusing on diversions and by inventing, indulging in and spreading (ever-more-idiotic) wish-fulfillment-fantasies.

i'm now starting a collection of such "wooonderful" headlines to document this phenomenon, this one (for now) is awarded the place of honor at the top of my list, which will probably --iaanm-- grow by several entries/week ...

> oil and distilled water without huge mountains of trash.
- YES, of course, just sprinkle a few ounces of the wonderful colorless red fairy-dust per pound of waste, add a few kWh out of the next outlet for this ubiquitous abundant "energy too cheap to meter" and --VOILA!!!-- we'll have the first ever invented process which --in contrast to just about all the other currently employed by the Cancer+chemical-pruducing industries-- will have no unwanted side-product, miracle *guaranteed* !
