Is Plastic Recycling A Lie? Oil Companies Touted Recycling To Sell More Plastic (NPR). Recycling is getting less and less effective as towns cut costs and plastic heads to the landfill.

Climate change continues to be a contested and controversial issue. For example, a Longtime Climate Science Denier (was) Hired At NOAA .
