Humans and nature

In a sort of follow up to my post last week entitled Humans vs. Nature,  looking at what we’ve already done and the results of it. I was just talking to a co-worker today abouta small town, I think in Virginia, and how they had no place to recycling their recent deluge of plastic water bottles (due to a chemical leak in their nearby water supply).

Anyway, this first article is sort of well, here’s what happens to all that plastic. The article is entitled “Future Fossils: Plastic Stone” by Rachel Nuwer at the New York Times. Talk about a scary story line!

The second article is about how war affects our planet and it’s entitled “Battlefield Earth – the Geological Legacy of War” by David Bressan over the Scientific American journal. Wow!
