‘Pollution from plastics is a global emergency in need of a robust UN treaty, according to a report.
The Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) says there’s a cascade of evidence of harm from plastics.
It argues that the plastic pollution threat is almost equivalent to climate change.
The air we breathe now contains plastic microparticles, there’s plastic in Arctic snow, plastic in soils and plastic in our food.

This is a laudable aim but can this really be achieved when we cannot agree on climate change!
