Back To The Future A Solution For Plastics Pollution of the Planet

Back To The Future A Solution For Plastics Pollution of the Planet

Is back to the future a solution for the ever-growing problem of plastics pollution?
We read every day about Climate Change and the efforts to arrest it by burning fewer fossil fuels; however, I have seen little evidence that these efforts are actually doing anything useful. Where is proof of these actions being valid?  Our Governments are spending billions of our dollars in the name of Climate Change while ignoring the ever-growing problem of plastics pollution. Sure Lip service is being paid by having people put plastics out in yellow bins in the name of recycling, but recently some television news programs have revealed the fact that much of this so-called recycled plastic is accumulating in warehouses all over the country.

It has also been reported that tons of recycled plastic have in fact secretly been dumped in landfill. The public is being told a lie by those who are elected to look for solutions to problems on behalf of the people.
Australia is trying to lead the world by prioritising Climate Change when, in fact, our contribution is minuscule in the world big picture.
Personally, I acknowledge that Climate Change exists, but I severely doubt that it is man-made. I don’t see any evidence that any of the measures being taken by governments are having any beneficial effect on the planets Climate.

Our world is definitely Cleaner

Our World is definitely Cleaner, though and that I see our world as becoming cleaner as time goes by . I remember how dirty things were in the 1950s. my clear recollection of the Black buildings in London, and since the reduction in the burning of coal, the buildings have been cleaned. Many aspects of Life are much cleaner than they previously were, but I still don’t see this affecting climate change.

My suggestion is that the Australian Government make a policy that will actually make a difference. Use the money to make a policy that will show results very quickly and set an example to the rest of the world.

Our earth is being choked by plastic, but it is never too late to act.

Plastic Pollution should be our number one priority. Plastic will smother the world just as it can suffocate a person. A plastic bottle can take more than 450 years to break down some plastics take more than a thousand years to break down. If we keep using plastic, we will eventually suffocate the earth. Already you can find substantial floating islands of plastic bottles moving around our oceans


The solution is staring us in the face. It does not require billions of taxpayers dollars to investigate, evaluate, procrastinate and expel vast quantities of politician hot air. It just needs action, decisive action. Short term pain for long term gain!

The Solution May be Back To the Future
The answer is staring us in the face we just need our Government to be strong enough to activate it. It is without a doubt, the solution is “Back to the Future”.

In the 1950s Milk came in glass bottles, It was delivered by a man in an electric-powered cart, he collected the empties from the day before. The bottles were washed at the depot and refilled with milk ready to be delivered the next day.

Soft drinks also came in glass bottles, and each bottle had a refund on return. Many charities undertook the collection of bottles to rais funds but also the vendors who sold the drinks also refunded on the returned bottles.

The reason we have plastic Bags

Plastic bags were invented as an alternative to paper grocery bags in the late 1970s to protect trees and prevent clear-cutting of our forests. What a joke it is just like swapping deck chairs on the Titanic. However, you can grow more trees. It may need up to 30 years for a seedling to become a tree, but surely that is better than the  1000 years it can take for a plastic bag to break down.

Our Vegetables came in brown paper bags and were delivered in a cardboard box. We had durable paper carrier bags. Life was excellent without plastics. Plastic Bags and Plastic bottles were a solution to a problem that did not exist.

It is not too late.

The Australian Government could quickly legislate a back to the future policy banning all plastic bags and plastic bottles. Sure it would cost more to purchase a bottle of milk or a bottle of soft drink, but the effect on the Australian economy would be very positive. Thousands of jobs for Milk delivery persons. Thousands of jobs for workers in glass manufacturing and glass recycling. Enormous opportunities for community groups and charities to collect and claim the refund on bottle returns.

Let us Take Action

No more accumulation of used plastic bottles in warehouses! No more dumping of plastic bottles in landfill.
Plastic bags were invented as an alternative to paper grocery bags in the late 1970s to protect trees and prevent clear-cutting of our forests.
This was a mistake and its time to reverse it. Demand the Government adopt a “Back to the Future Policy” on plastic bags and plastic bottles. Unlike the Climate Change policy, which we struggle to see any effect, the effects of the Back to The Future Policy would be very apparent very quickly

2 Crocodiles

Two Crocodiles were sitting at the side of the River.The smaller one turned to the bigger one and said, ‘I can’t understand how you can be so much bigger than me. We’re the same age, we were the same size as kids – I just don’t get it.’

‘Well,’ said the big Croc, ‘what have you been eating?’

‘Politicians, same as you,’ replied the small Croc.

‘Hmm. Well, where do you catch them?’

‘On the other side of the river near the Parliament car park in Canberra.

‘Same here. Hmm…..How do you catch them?’ asked the big Croc.

‘Well, I crawl up under one of their big Lexus, BMW or Mercedes cars and wait for one to unlock the car door. Then I jump out, grab them by the leg, shake the shit out of them and eat ’em!’

‘Ah!’ says the big Crocodile, ‘I think I see your problem. You’re not
getting any real nourishment. See, by the time you finish shaking the shit out of a Politician, there’s nothing much left but an arsehole with a briefcase

Is Scott Morrison Trying to Start the Boats Coming Again

Is Scott Morrison trying to start the boats coming again? It would be politically advantageous for the LNP to start the flood of refugees coming by boat. So this needs to happen before the next federal election. Listen to Kristina Keneally she puts it in perspective.

If you were the council what would you spend $40 million on ?

If you were the council what would you spend $40 million on ? People are saying NO to Mid Coast Council spending $40 million on moving to the Masters Building. What should they be spending $40 million on ?

Demand DE MERGE

We should be demanding DE MERGE that should be the main issue. If they consolidate the whole shebang in to Masters it will be much more difficult to DE MERGE. Perhaps this explains the undue haste in trying to move to the Masters Building ? With the state election coming up soon with the possibilty of labour winning government there may be a real chance to get DE MERGE

Please leave a comment to this blog and we will publish most sensible responses.

We want to Know your thoughts on this issue

Prime Minister get off your arse and do something constructive!

Once again there is a massive drought in Australia. So a massive  fund raising event is underway. The Australian people are being urged to donate money. Food is being collected by support organisations such as Lions. And our farmers who are struggling to deal with the effects are committing suicide. Yet again the effects of a prolonged drought. You simply cant grow anything without water. And it has not rained for several years. We have heard it all before. Because drought is a regular event in Australia.

Prime minister get off your arse and do something

The politicians for doing nothing about it! They think infrastructure is about building roads. Their only interest seems to be elections and votes.
Prime minister its time to get off your arse and do something! The only thing our politicians are consistent at is bad mouthing each other to get elected. Its time they did something.

Criminal neglect of duty

In the past 200 plus years there has been many severe droughts in Australia.  There is even a Poem written by Dorothea Mackeller
I love a sunburnt country, 
A land of sweeping plains, 
Of ragged mountain ranges, 
Of droughts and flooding rains

How can all the politicians over the years just ignore this fact of life and do nothing about it ! It is IMO a criminal neglect of duty

Provide drought affected areas with unlimited supply of water

Its would be a huge project but the only solution to drought is. Provide drought affected areas with an unlimited supply of water. It is time to focus on water, pumps, pipes and damns. What about desalination of sea water .
A huge project like providing water in drought affected areas would soak up a lot of unemployed . Remember or check out the history of the Snowy Mountain Scheme! Prime minister get off your arse and get on with it because. One thing is certain this is not the first drought and it wont be the last.

Disqualified from Driving Needs to be Enforced

Disqualified Drivers Involved in Crashes

There have been many fatal accidents on our roads. And it seems that more than a few of these involve disqualified drivers.  Sometimes the news reports that a person involved was disqualified and had been in court before for driving whilst disqualified. Yesterday 6th February 2019 another incident was reported.

Police chase driver who was disqualified for 50 years

Shown on TV last night was a dramatic police car chase. The car being chased drove on wrong side of road. It went through red lights, and was exceeding speed limits by more than 50 klm.
The driver when apprehended was previously disqualified from driving for 50 years!

Its Time To Get Tough!

Why are the authorities in Australia so weak ? If a person is disqualified from driving for any reason and then drives a vehicle why should they not be given a significant prison sentence.  Get caught driving while disqualified should equal 2 Years in prison  get caught a second time 4 years in prison. Get caught a third time 10 years in prison.
