What happens when we create too much trash?
As a previous resident of the state of Virginia, one of the biggest trash importers in the United States, I was struck by this video. Virginia brings in tons of New York and New Jersey trash by barge on a consistent basis. We even had landfills named "Mount Trashmore" when I was growing up that were covered in sod and then made into public parks.
So what will happen as our population continues to explode and our consumption and therefore generation of trash rises exponentially with it?
