    I live in a landlocked city, but it happens to be very windy. If you walk along the more open pathways, all the bushes along the side are just filled with garbage. Loose plastic bags, food wrappers, cups, etc. all buried at the bottom, stuck under all the leaves and branches. Trash is one of the biggest problems we have right now, but it seems like our answer is to just make more of it. Very bleek outlook on the future of our environment

    I'm not really concerned about this, not since I read about plastic eating bacteria found in the wild. These bacteria will likely quickly spread across the globe (there being so much food for them), and then plastic will become more like wood is in terms of biodegradeability. The bacteria are slow, but have already been "ennobled" in labs to be much more effective. This however is not just a good thing. We use plastic as much as we do because it won't degrade, and once it will, we will likely do to it what we do with wood: Impregnate it to protect it from being degraded, and then we are to some degree back to where we are now. But there will be a significant difference: We will be able to choose whether or not the plastic we use is to be biodegradeable, and for most common uses, such as packaging in supermarkets, there will be no reason to use the impregnated types, as they are not expected to last very long anyway. Additionally of course, all of the waste we have already dumped will (eventually) be degraded. That is not to say we can just litter as we want with plastic, as there are many different types, and in all likelihood some will not be easily broken down. Not to mention the other chemicals typically found in plastic, which are also not great. But things are not as bad as they seem.

    In the US, a bodge is called a kluge. I'd like to help you work up a history of incredible (and ridiculous) kluges. I even have one from Microsoft Tech Support in 1988. MS released it's latest version of DOS - 3.-something. They got the date function wrong,, Between 1/1/1988 and 2/28/1988, if you set the date at the command line using >Date:1/1/1988, it would set a date that would display as 1/2/1988. Internally, the date counter adjusted for the leap day on 1/1/1988 instead of waiting until 2/29/1988. Our tech team went looking for (or building) a fix. A very bright admin assistant called Microsoft. They told her to just type in the wrong date so it would come out right! Microsoft had no plans to patch the bug! The whole tech team spontaneously yelled, Kluge! Still, the admin assistant got it right; That kluge was the only fix until 2/29/1988, when the bug vanished into history.

    But the grand problem is, even if we collect up all that plastic, it still exists. Like, if 80% of waste plastic ends up in the oceans, then when we collect up all that plastic and dispose of it... does it just eventually find its way back to the oceans again some day? Because what do we mean by "dispose of it"? We're not actually getting rid of it, are we? We're just storing it all up somewhere else instead. And wherever that alternative storage location is, that Lego brick's got 1300 years to eventually find its way back. "Out of sight" might mean "out of mind", but it doesn't mean "out of existence". It's all still there, just brushed under a carpet, so we can lie to ourselves that it's gone. And, you know, with ground water, coastal erosion, rivers and streams (both overground and underground), tectonic plates, earthquakes, etc. then we might think that that land fill is static and going absolutely nowhere. But over 1300 years? Will that still be true in the year 3321AD? The world looks static at the speed we humans live at, but it really isn't, of course.
