of our times has been reported and gone unnoticed.
Some people somewhere have discovered how to reduce plastics back into their component hydrocarbons by simple microwave zapping. For those amongst you who are idiots (one step forward please) this means that non-biodegradable plastics, which are primarily hydrocarbons (that’s oil to you dumbo) no longer have to be dumped and left to choke poor little annoying seagulls and albatrosses and suchlike but can be zapped back into oil for fuel.
Read about it in the New Scientist. NOW!
