Sean Wolf Posted over 2 years ago Let's create man-made icebergs to help animals to cope with changing conditions in polar ecosystems. You mistook my example on artificial reefs. There are two types... one designed to promote an ecosystem and the other to alter surf conditions. My point was that we spend public money on only affecting something as irrelevant to our overall well-being as surfing. Yes, I imagine floating plastic landmasses. We have literally mountains of plastic. There are recycling programs constantly in action. Having worked in a plastic manufacturing facility, I know that the vast majority of plastic used in the manufacturing industry is reclaimed and recycled plastics. Plastic is not a concern. It isn't like the portion of oil we burn for fuel, when plastics are formed they are there for the long term.
