The Future of Plastics Will Determine the Future of Oil Demand by Irina Slav, Apr 27, 2024, Oilprice.comWarning, lying teeth grinding pro-polluter propaganda ahead!

  • The UN Global Plastics Treaty negotiations aim to curb plastic pollution by essentially curbing the use of plastics globally.
  • Exxon’s head of product solution: “The issue is pollution. The issue is not plastic.”.
  • Any plastic ban would have to come with feasible and affordable alternatives for modern-day plastic use.

The UN is this week discussing the future of plastic—or so it would seem on the surface. The UN Global Plastics Treaty negotiations aim to curb plastic pollution by essentially curbing the use of plastics globally. And they look set to fail.

The goal is certainly noble. Reducing the massive amount of plastic waste that we produce on a daily basis to keep it from ending up in rivers, oceans and, according to some researchers, our bodies. Achieving this goal, however, is quite another matter.

Plastics, especially single-use plastics in packaging, has been instrumental in making a lot of products more affordable to more people. And while electronics, for instance, can certainly be sold in non-plastic packaging, fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat are another matter—and expensive matter.Fracshit! I’ve been shopping with baskets and cloth produce bags for decades, and rarely buy meat (when I do, I get it from butchers that package it in paper). Living without plastic is easy, IF the oil and gas industry didn’t have our politicians and regulators nuts and boobs in vices

The European Union just this week approved new rules on packaging aimed at reducing waste. One of these rules was, in fact, a ban on single-use plastic packaging for fresh fruit and vegetables from 2030.Of course, way too late. With heat, fire, wind, flood, drought extremes escalating fast, who knows if earth will have punted human and other life off it by then. Humans deserve to be punted, other species not. This means that from that year on, tomatoes, for instance, would be sold in probably cardboard packages. This would make them more prone to damage, which would lead to more food waste by supermarkets. This would make tomatoes as a whole more expensive. And it will affect more than just tomatoes.Fuck, you have no imagination! Not all countries are as stupid, polluting and greedy as in North America. There are other packaging products than just cardboard. Many wise people shop in small grocery stores, and or markets/farms where local produce is available without packaging. Best is to avoid the massive greed-infested, over prices monster stores anyways, that are just breeding grounds for disease and drive up stress because they are such horrifying experiences. I stay far away from prepackaged foods and buy much of my produce organic and dried from producers, greatly reducing packaging.

It seems, then, that while noble, the goal of reducing plastic pollution may be harder to achieve than it seems. We lived without it for many centuries, and can do again – better that than choking life out via the ethane industry’s relentless drive to over produce plastic. The UN talks are a good example themselves. In a recent update, one green NGO present at the event said that the United States had refused to consider any additional moves besides current legislation on the topic of plastics. If the biggest plastics user in the world refuses to consider anythingThat’s cause – as with the murderous monstrosity of Zionism – the USA is owned and controlled by the oil and gas industry, including the ethane industry that wants more plastic for greed reasons, and greed reasons only in addition to already existing legislation, the chances of the rest of the world agreeing to something that could have a palpable effect on plastics use are not exactly huge.

The oil industry, however, is worried.so it needs to be. the industry knows it’s destroying earth’s livability, and has known for decades. Worse, the world has found out it has been betrayed by the industry and is being murdered by it.

Media have been reporting that there were a lot of attendants of the UN talks in Ottawa from the oil and petrochemicals industry, with the Guardian lamenting the fact that “Fossil fuel and petrochemical campaigners at Ottawa summit outnumber scientists, EU and Indigenous delegates.”

The report above cites BP predictions that plastics will come to account for as much as 95% of oil demand growth in the two decades to 2040, which echoes a lot of other forecasts for oil demand prospects. Indeed, plastics are widely seen as the biggest driver of oil demand in the future, although we might end up surprised at how long demand from the transport sector endures in view of the latest developments in EV markets.

It is little wonder then that the oil industry seeks to protect this demand driver—and it has some solid backing from industry funded and controlled con job science. Plastics are a huge contributor in making modern healthcare as safe as it isWhat? Health care is killing many, intentionally via denying aerosol spread of killer viruses like H5N1, SARSCov2, measles, etc. to keep people out partying, socializing, driving, flying to keep the oil industry making record billions of dollars in profits, no matter how many that kills. And oil, gas, frac, bitumen, coal and plastics companies are killing millions of people and who knows how many other species directly, because of toxic, often radioactive health-destroying pollution, and, arguably more importantly, it has an equally huge contribution in making a lot of foods affordable for more people – simply because plastic packaging reduces the costs of transporting and storing these foods.Dirty cruel and stupid fear mongering with hunger and starvation when the facts are that the oil and gas industry is what is putting food at risk, globally. Extreme heat and droughts prevent food production on a mass scale globally. The oil and gas drug patch is what will starve humans and other species, it needs to die to product earth’s ability to sustain agriculture and life Yet while plastics used in healthcare are safe from bans, at least for now, plastics in food packaging are a target.

“The issue is pollution. The issue is not plastic.” The issue IS plastic. Plastic is how the polluting law violating life and health destroying oil and gas industry wants to stay alive in a world that does not want it anymore, because more and more humans are seeing the industry’s devastation, lies and betrayals. This is according to Exxon’s head of product solutions, Karen McKee, who recently told the FT that “A limit on plastic production will not serve us in terms of pollution and the environment.”Of course it will, you liar.

Alternatives to plastic packaging could have a bigger emissions footprint, McKee argued.“Could” but don’t.

If this sounds familiar, it is probably because it smacks of the arguments made against the electrification of transport in light of all the raw material mining, refining, and processing inputs into EVs that cast a shadow over its zero-emission credentials.

The simple truth is that plastics are used on such a massive scale because they are one, convenient, and two, cheap. but deadly, and as more and more entire towns are wiped out by floods, storms, wildfires, plastics are quickly becoming one of humankind’s most expensive enemies, quickly followed by oil, gas, frac, bitumen and coalPlastic ban advocates would need to come up with alternatives that can offer the same combination of convenience and price to stand a chance at succeeding with the bans on any meaningful scale.Alternatives are everywhere. All it takes, is some common sense, willingness to protect life, and imagination and willingness to sacrifice a bit of convenience which many want to do.

The situation is very much a reflection of the energy transition itself. Wind, solar, and EVs, not to mention hydrogen, have consistently failed to dethrone oil, gas, and even coal from their top spot in the global energy mix.China (and others) prove this untrue. This remains true even as the expansion of wind and solar has made gas and coal generation a lot less competitive in the absence of the same subsidy treatment.If alternatives to plastics and renewable energies received the same hundreds of $billions in subsidies as the heavily polluting and water destroying oil and gas industry did, most countries would no longer allow oil and gas

Alas, the alternative to plastic production bans would be better disposal processes and more recycling.WFT is wrong with your brain? Recycling plastics is an industry con job to push more plastics. Better disposal? How? Landfills, even the best managed, globally are overflowing with plastics! Unfortunately, recycling, too, must be profitable for this to work, and much of it simply isn’t profitable. Much recycling is simply not doable, period.The world has a plastic waste problem. Bans may do solve this problem, but they would create new and potentially graver ones. Get a grip! such pathetic cry babying. It is certainly a serious conundrum.
