Where are we heading?

It looks very scary with prices of essential commodities going up and our salaries seem to have stagnated over the years. With the recent hike of petrol price in Malaysia by 41%, I guess everything has gone up or gone less if there is no hike in cost. Comparatively our petrol price is still lower than the other countries in the region but that is not a consolation. Because at the end of the day, our savings have gone smaller and I still can’t figure out why is the cost of oil going up? Is it that the supply can’t meet the demands of China and India or is it something that we don’t know.

Why haven’t we found an alternative source of fuel, we have discovered everything that is possible under the sun. Are we waiting for the depletion of oil from the Arab nations and then come out with the discoveries. To me something doesn’t seem right here.

With the ever increasing population, do you think that the demand for petroleum would decrease? Look at the number of cars that are hitting the roads every day. Why can’t we have an efficient public transport system so that the public would not depend on cars?

Look at the weather across the globe and you would know where we are heading. All this is brought about by our destruction of the forest and indiscriminate use of non-biodegradable plastics. Is this what we call development?

Look at the killings that is going on across the globe and we are waging wars in the name of democracy and religion. The list goes on and on and on. There is no respite to the happenings across the globe.

  1. Now there is a solution which is called “Bioplast Biodegradable Plastics.”

    Bioplast is a manufacturing company of BIOPLAST Branded Biodegradable Garbage Bags and Fridge Bags for the household markets and for the industry as well as Biodegradable Carrier Bags and Vegy Bags for the retail sector using their own patented unique formula of bacteria enzyme base substrate as against starch base as used by other manufacturers world over which is not as strong or durable as polymer (plastic) bags and has a cost addition of 300%-400%. Also starch based products can comprise of genetically modified crops (GM Crops) which contains PLA the substitutes can increase emissions of greenhouse gases on landfill sites and releases Methane which is 23 times more damaging than the C02 that Al and Goreites have demonized and cannot be recycled in Britain. See The Guardian reported on Saturday on “Corn starch based material can damage the environment”;

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2008/apr/26/waste.pollution

    Bioplast is the only Biodegradable technology in the world using bacteria enzyme base substrate which is 100% biodegradable within 6 months after disposal as per ASTM-D 5988-1996 and EN 13432:2000/ISO 14855 standards with the lowest cost addition.

    Bioplast biodegradable products are also compostable and hence enhancing the nutritive value of the remaining soil. All the ingredients of Bioplast biodegradable plastic products are food grade and non-toxic in nature therefore suitable to be in contact with food products.

    Bioplast is using nature to solve a man made problem.

    Bioplast believes that this great innovation will go a long way in preserving the ecological balance around the world which has brought intelligent and affordable solution to the disposal of polyethylene plastic waste problem worldwide.

    Now the local and central Governments must ban all non-biodegradable plastic bags and force all the retailers to use ONLY 100% Biodegradable bags in their stores as an alternative to reusable canvas bags which will be the evidence of their sincere concern for the environment and their commitment to tackling the considerable problem of plastic bag waste and the pollution.

  2. Wow thanks for the info. I know I have read somewhere that a guy has come with bacteria that can eat up the plastic bags. But the question is how many Governments would really care to use the product that you have mentioned. I know of cases where the waste is shipped to third world countries for dumping by the developed nations.

    Anyway thank you so much for your enlightening comment.
