This week’s strikes bring awareness to the impact plastic manufacturing and pollution has on the climate system. A study recently published demonstrates how plastics contribute to the climate crisis. This year, plastic manufacturing and incineration will create more than 850 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions! Plastics now make up more than 60% of ocean debris and a startling new study showed how micro plastics are saturating deep ocean environments. To address the climate crisis, we must address the plastic crisis!
