Did you watch Earth 2100 last night?
I did. I found it terrifying.
Now, I'm not 100% sure how likely each of the potential plots is. But even if some of the assumptions are wrong, the show convinces me even more how important it is to reduce our use of natural resources.
Plastic comes from petroleum. Reducing your plastic use frees up those resources to tide us over until we think of better ways to transport ourselves and heat/cool our homes.
If nothing else, it was good un-plastic inspiration. See for yourself by clicking here.
