SUMMER OF SCI-FI: 2019! – www.MILANO411.com
THIS is a good video essay on what AMERICA is doing to fight pollution and recycle. The United States has been going in a good direction, but recently due to Trump and China environmental policy; there has been a slide. The robots are here to save the day. But will they steal jobs too? Ciao….
ABOUT THIS VIDEO:
For decades, the United States and other wealthy countries have been dependent on China to buy and process almost half of the world’s plastic waste. Now, stricter recycling standards in China mean its cheaper for some US cities to simply send recyclables to the dump rather than pay a higher fee to process them. That’s why a number of researchers and tech companies are working on robots to make US recycling more efficient.
