The World’s Recycling Is in Chaos. Here’s What Has to Happen

This story was originally published by Yale Environment 360 and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration.

It has been a year since China jammed the works of recycling programs around the world by essentially shutting down what had been the industry’s biggest market. China’s National Sword policy, enacted in January 2018, banned the import of most plastics and other materials headed for that nation’s recycling processors, which had handled nearly half of the world’s recyclable waste for the past quarter century. The move was an effort to halt a deluge of soiled and contaminated materials that was overwhelming Chinese processing facilities and leaving the country with yet another environmental problem—and this one not of its own making.

In the year since, China’s plastic imports have plummeted by 99 percent, leading to a major global shift in where and how materials tossed in the recycling bin are being processed. While the glut of plastics is the main concern, China’s imports of mixed paper have also dropped by a third. Recycled aluminum and glass are less affected by the ban.

Mike Trout, Angels finalizing a record 12-year, roughly $430 million extension

The climax of an offseason spent contemplating and debating the value of some of baseball’s biggest stars, as it turns out, was not the record-setting free agent contracts agreed to last month by Manny Machado and Bryce Harper but what came Tuesday: a massive extension in its final stages for Los Angeles Angels center fielder Mike Trout that zoomed past those other deals like a 600-foot home run.

Trout’s extension is worth “roughly” $430 million over 12 years, according to two people familiar with the negotiation — $100 million more than the 13-year, $330 million deal Harper signed weeks ago with the Philadelphia Phillies, which previously stood as the largest in North American team sports history. The new deal effectively adds 10 years and roughly $360 million to the $66.5 million Trout was already owed for 2019 and 2020 from the extension he signed in 2014, according to an industry source, but for luxury tax purposes it will be considered a 12-year contract.

On Friday, two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, were added to the sad litany of sanctuaries desecrated by unholy violence.

In each case, the houses of worships were attacked by white supremacists, according to law enforcement officials.

In each case, a religious community has been left grieving, pondering its future and feeling unsettled in sites that were supposed to be sanctuaries.

Mass Shooting At 2 New Zealand Mosques Leaves At Least 49 People Dead

A mass shooting at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, on Friday left at least 49 people dead and the city on lockdown for hours.

“It is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack,” Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said at a news conference. “From what we know, it does appear to have been well planned. …These are people who I would describe as having extremist views that have absolutely no place in New Zealand and in fact have no place in the world.”

Ardern said 20 other people were seriously injured in the attack, which began just before 3 p.m. local time, and that the country had raised its threat level to high following the incident.

Pensamencontos

Aqui trago contos e pensamentos, de personagens que passaram e passam por mim, pela minha mente. Emprestei fragmentos meus, a cada um dos mesmos... ou talvez tenha sido o contrário. Resumindo o que disse Lispector "escrever é uma maldição. Mas escrever apenas uma linha, basta para salvar a alma." E escrever é isso. Lançar em letras, o que não se pode medir, o que não se pode tocar com as mãos. Também trarei trechos de livros e crítica de artes em geral, bem como, desenhos autorais. Música Indie também fará parte do acervo.
