Plastics are made out of crude oil and natural gas, the same fossil fuels used in our homes and cars. And, because plastics can never fully disintegrate, they overflow our landfills, rivers and oceans. Plastics are now found in every step of our food chain and throughout our bodies.
While climate activists focus on reducing fossil fuel usage in the power and transportation sectors, big oil is quietly redirecting billions of dollars into petrochemical plants to produce more and more plastics … drilling for the same amount of oil & gas, just redirecting these fossil fuels into plastics.
Join host, Bob Grove, and guests to discuss plastics and their effect on climate change.
