Ecology through Science Not Taxation.
I love the earth, I love fresh air and waters pure.
I will do my best to protect it, nurture it, become part of it.
I refuse to buy it , pay for it, slave for it, like the earth I must be part of it.
I turn off lights when no need for it.
I hang clothes to dry when its time for it.
I walk with it, I love with it, I learn from it.
Politics takes it and changes it, to something they must charge for it.
Business as business is, takes advantage of it.
Citizens, to attract no criticism, fall victims to it.
The science exists for it.
Let us all become part of it.
There are solutions other than taxes, support business's that solve IT.The Third Generation of Biodegradable Conventional Plastics, which are used in our products: Microbiodegradable Plastic
There is now a third generation biodegradable product which is the standard plastic we use daily, light naphtha based plastic, with an additive (ENA or Earth Nurture Additive,) that will cause it to biodegrade without the need of heat, UV light, mechanical stress, or oxygen. This third-generation plastic is called microbiodegradable plastic, and it biodegrades when placed into the ground due to the action of micro-organisms naturally occurring in soil. Examples of these microorganisms are Pseudomonas, Sphingomonas, Xanthomonas, Sphingobacterium, Xylaria, and Trichoderma.
We are now using the third generation ENA additive in all of our products. It has all of the benefits of oxo-biodegradable plastics-it is recyclable, is invulnerable to water, some products can have recycled content, it doesn't diminish the grain supply, and it is stronger, less expensive, and made of an otherwise useless industrial byproduct. It also has the advantage of having the same shelf life as regular plastic, unlike PLA and oxo-biodegradable plastic, as it does not biodegrade until it is in the presence of soil micro-organisms.
Additionally, this new ENA microbiodegradable plastic will definitely biodegrade when buried in the ground in either aerobic or anaerobic environments, ie. in a land fill. Like PLA, this new plastic will produce small amounts of methane in a land fill if deeply buried, but not so quickly as PLA, and like PLA, it will produce small amounts of carbon dioxide as a result of the metabolism of micro-organisms if it decomposes in the presence of oxygen.
With this new generation of ENA microbiodegradable plastic, biodegradation is delayed long enough that there is time to cap the landfills, so the methane is burned off or even used to generate electricity, as is being done in almost 500 US land fills currently. Like all of our products, this new plastic is recyclable and completely non-toxic to people, plants, and animals, and is made of ingredients approved by the FDA for food contact. The state of California has changed California law, effective 2009, to permit the use of the term biodegradable to label any product that meets any ASTM standard that is described as testing for biodegradability. Our products meet two ASTM standards for biodegradable plastics.
In our view, by using naphtha-based ENA microbiodegradable plastic, we are following in the footsteps of the native Americans of the Great Plains, who used every part of the buffalo, the chief resource in their environment. We take an industrial byproduct that used to be wasted and turn it into useful packaging materials and other disposable items. Then the disposable items are turned into humus, to the benefit of the soil and the plants it nurtures. Waste gasses from the conversion process are then used to make electricity. We thus have progressed from wasting an asset to generating three benefits from it for people and our planet.
This is a real solution, cap and trade is bullshIT!
