A Condensed History of Water Litter
Beach clean ups and inventions like the Interceptor were mildly useful in keeping rubbish out of water. The three Rs and ecological organisations like Oceanic Society were encouraged. Yet, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch bulged broader. Compostable biodegradable plastic was invented; Notpla was made from seaweed and plants. Finally, legislation criminalised non-compostable plastic production. A bacteria was invented. The twenty-second century microbe literally ate plastic in water even if it was nano-sized. Militant environmentalists became terrorists destroying illegal plastic labs.
Well, goodnight from World Wide news and let us hope we can eventually control water pollution before it controls mankind.
