The cat just went over to the HomePod mini on my desk, meowed at it, and Siri said "sure here is some music for you" and the cat perched on the window sill listening to Garbage and Elliott Smith.

I just want to know how long this has been going on.

At my local library, a little girl dropped her library books into the ‘return’ slot, waved and shouted “GOODBYE BOOKS, HAVE A GOOD DAY AT SCHOOL!” and my heart grew three sizes 🥺

"Hello, sir; yes, you on the front row. What's your job? Fireman? I imagine you have seen many destroyed human bodies, tangled, blackened; a sight never to be erased from one's mind; a nightmare from which you can never wake. Like a mind scar that forever weeps blackened blood"

Plastic Recycling Doesn’t Work and Will Never Work (May 2022, The Atlantic)

* "The problem with recycling plastic lies not with the concept or process but with the material itself."

* "toxicity risks in recycled plastic prohibit “the vast majority of plastic products and packaging produced” from being recycled into food-grade packaging."

* "plastic recycling is simply not economical. Recycled plastic costs more than new plastic because collecting, sorting, transporting, and reprocessing plastic waste is exorbitantly expensive."

* "Chemical recycling is not viable. It has failed and will continue to fail for the same down-to-earth, real-world reasons that the conventional mechanical recycling of plastics has consistently failed. Worse yet, its toxic emissions could cause new harm to our environment, climate, and health."

Story at the Atlantic by Judith Enck, a former EPA regional administrator, the president of Beyond Plastics, and a visiting professor at Bennington College; and Jan Dell, a chemical engineer and the founder of the Last Beach Cleanup.
