Researchers Find Energy Efficient Way to Convert Plastic Bags Into Diesel Fuel
Plastic shopping bags, an abundant source of litter on land and at sea, can be converted into diesel, natural gas and other useful petroleum products, researchers report.
The conversion produces significantly more energy than it requires and results in transportation fuels—diesel, for example—that can be blended …
when i was little and my parents were driving id pretend there was a man/being/thing running alongside the car who had to follow certain rules like “he can only travel by jumping from streetlight to streetlight” or “he can only walk on fences”
i was so surprised to find out that other people did similar things
i wonder what the underlying psychology behind it is
like its a really specific thing to do but almost everyone did it without telling other kids about it because we all thought it was probably weird or unimportant
i really hope that a psychologist sees this and will post the physiological reason why 99.9% of kids do this
dude… i did this. wtf. i thought i was the only one. amazing.
mine was always a cute animal WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT THING
I did this but it was always a man with running gear on!
Mine was a chimera. I was a weird kid.
…. And so it has begun. Tony Abbott has put the Marine Park Suspension into play, with dredging construction already underway to create Australia’s newest shipping highway, Abbott point, better known as the Great Barrier Reef. Completely disregarding the World Heritage Classification or UNESCO protection, Rinehart is removing 3 MILLION cubic meters of the worlds most diverse largest living organism and ecosystem only to build the largest coal export terminal. We are going to lose one of the worlds most truly precious gems to a temporary and damaging “solution”. The Great Barrier Reef will no longer exist because of Abbotts desire for CSG export income. So please reblog and share this to show your support for saving natures gift to the world. Wake UP Australia, and spread the word.
3 million tonnes of mud will be dredged and dumped in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. This will lead to more than 100 million tonnes of greenhouse gases being released into our atmosphere, seriously damaging efforts to tackle climate change. These changes will be irreversible and have extreme consequences on the environment. This is the epitome of corporate greed and monetary gain at the expense of our planet.
god fucking dammit why does he have to do this doesnt he understand ANYTHING jesus im so mad
Abbott is the biggest flog, why is it so god damn difficult for Australia to find a decent prime minister
I really really can’t believe how dumb someone could be let alone our prime minister, and what sores me even more is that we can’t change that for another three years.
This should have HEAPS more notes
