I was impressed to find out that the influential of the world are finally catching up with me. They had a post linking to an article by Ramesh Ponnuru which was linked even further to some scientific research and L.A. Times articles.
It is always amazing to me when scientists spend big bucks doing research to prove what common sense will tell you. I don’t have a Ph.D. but here is what I said about the ban on plastic bags.
The major down side of this is sanitation. When I get a plastic or paper bag from the store, I can assume that it is a first time use. I can assume that it is clean and sanitary. It is one less worry. When people bring their own bags, who knows where it has been. This is just another way to spread disease.Notice the date, January 3, 2012
Did I get a link? Did I get any credit? It is amazing what can get done if no one is concerned about getting credit. I would guess if I wanted to look, someone else said it even before I did.
This is really a serious issue. The environmentalists want to kill us all.
Ban the Ban.
