  1. Of course Tyler Durden and his Ayn rand fascist buddies, want to keep making, as much plastic as possible. That is to enrich their worshipped overlords billionaire, captains of industry, Koch Brothers, Mercer, even Bill Gates, Donald Trump. Their oligarch Gods.
    They want it dumped in huge landfills and the ocean to keep enriching their rich psychopath buddies and idols. It will seep into water supplies from the aquifers creating phthalates and agent Orange like chemical.
    Art Robinson even says it should all go in the ocean. Never mind that it is tangled in the guts of all the fish and marine life now. Never mind that it turns into toxic poison that causes cancer and hormone disruption in all animals and plants with phthalates, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), God know what else from interacting with the radionuclides, free radicals, heavy metals that already contaminate the he’ll out of everything. Fake fukk fascist libertarians want as much nuclear shit, poisons yeah everywhere then lie their
    ASSES off about it. The mercers think a little nuclear war would be good for us so does Fuko, art robinson wants to dump muscular waste from the sky and put it in the water supply to vaccinate us from radiation. That is what fascist fuks like Tyler Durden really believe.
    Why not stop making so much goddamn plastic? Stop fracking petrochemicals? Shred the shot here and reuse some of it if possible. Big-time cognitive dissonance propaganda and lie bullshit going on here.
