Why does climate change not get same hype as plastic waste?
Recycling plastic will not change the levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, writes David Robbins
When I tell people at the vegan, biodynamic, politically correct dinner parties we academics are always being invited to, that I study media coverage of climate change, I get one of two reactions.
The first one involves a slight pause, a puzzled frown and then: "Well, we're very keen on recycling, aren't we, Desmond?"
Great. Fair play. But nothing to do with climate change.
