Plastic is a wonderful thing. It encases our gadgets, helps keep our food fresh, holds our water, and carries our data, as well as having a multitude of other uses. But there is one major problem with it: plastic does not breakdown on a reasonable timescale. The chemical bonds are so strong it is very difficult for nature to degrade it. The end result is lots of waste plastic being buried or clogging up our oceans for the next several generations. What we need is a way to quickly breakdown plastic waste, and the solution has appeared from an unlikely source.
Pretty cool solution to all the plastic waste we're producing right now.
They should use it to eliminate that plastic island floating around the ocean, video tape it just disappearing and then fast forward the thing like 1000x times and put on Youtube. Now I wonder what would happen if somehow that fungus got loose in the civilized world.
Fixed the title and format.
Sorry mods, I haven't posted in this section for a long time so didn't how to post things correctly.
