PLASTIC: EMBLEM OF ANTI-DEVELOPMENT

By: Dr. Oscar Bravo

"It was a plastic city, the kind I don't want to see." (Blades)

- When we refer to the history of the civilizations of mankind, we find ourselves in the presence of terrible paradoxes about the work and attitudes of the institutional powers that have had a determining influence on what men and women have been, are and possibly will be. In which we are all linked in a close relationship that identifies us as members of a planetary society, which we can give certain specificities in the last hundred years with the management of some ideological banners on the meanings and meanings of progress and development, which has acted irresponsibly in the terrible damage caused to the habitat or quality of life, in which today there is a key and silent character, which has been sold as a human invention for the convenience and practicality of things. We are talking about the use of plastic, which has such a negative impact on the environment, and which has become worldwide as "the garbage that does not degrade" and that the big industries and plastic manufacturers care more about the huge profits than the future of humanity.

There are some very illustrative sentences, taken from a blog of the Camilo José Cela University, such as: "There are thousands of tons of plastic of various sizes that pollute our oceans, and have a devastating effect on marine wildlife and birds. Human beings, being at the top of the trophic pyramid, are not exempt from the dangers posed by this serious pollution" and other phrases from international organizations: "The World Health Organization and UNEP have jointly declared that endocrine disruption (one of the effects of plastic) is a global crisis. An international group of scientists has called for governments to declare plastic as a hazardous waste".

Therefore, "development and progress" should reflect on the terrible consequences that the environment and humanity suffer when living with plastic.
