英会話ブログ その799      Plastic Eating Bacteria

2016/04/25

Donald Trump, the probable presidential race nominee for the Republican party's bid to claim the White House in November should read this blog.

Scientists in Japan have discovered a "strain" (kind of) bacteria that can eat plastic, a significant finding that could solve the world's fast-growing plastic pollution problem.

Donald Trump is constantly bashing Japan about currency manipulation and the trade deficit.  

Donald Trump loves money.  It is his god.  He cares little for the human race and doesn't believe there is a global warming crisis.   He is not very concerned about the world's environmental issues.  Japan does care and makes great efforts to clean up the environment.

Japanese scientists have found a "species" ( variety ) of bacteria that can fully break down one of the most common kinds of plastic called, "polyethylene terephthalate (PET), the kind of plastic used in PET bottles for beverages, cosmetics and household cleaners.

This could be really good news for the world's environment.  Almost one-third of plastic packaging escapes recycling and ends up in nature.  Plastic is killing fish and clogging the worlrd's waterways !                                          (V.C)
