Converting plastic waste into porous carbon for capturing carbon dioxide

"Besides climate change, which is mostly the result of our carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, plastic pollution stands as one of the most critical environmental concerns of this decade. The sheer quantity of discarded and misplaced plastic is dealing irreparable damage to Earth's ecosystems, affecting our crops and contaminating our water supplies. If we are to transition into truly sustainable societies, we need to find efficient ways to repurpose discarded plastics."

More Mining at Home Is a Win-Win for Environment and Defense

"A domestic mining and REE industry can only serve to fix long-standing dependence on China for crucial defense materials and allow for a cleaner and more efficient energy transition.

"Removing tariffs does not mean abandoning domestic manufacturing. The U.S. should continue investing in manufacturing capabilities to support demonstration projects that incentivize firms to invest in bringing the next generation of these technologies closer to market. And the U.S. should also continue investing in innovating at the technological frontier to discover new and better technologies, like solid state batteries and next generation solar technology."

"The passion for preserving NEPA comes from environmental activists and lawyers who count on it to stall projects they have no legal basis to halt. This becomes obvious when they begin to list the many scary and polluting projects that they fear would move forward without sufficient NEPA review. But of course, laws already exist to prohibit a project that poses unacceptable environmental risk; it can be stopped without NEPA review. And if the activists wanted to put more projects off limits, they could lobby to make those laws tougher."
