Rapid Growth and Obsolete Laws Threaten the Internet and the Global Economy

Rapid Growth and Obsolete Laws Threaten the Internet and the Global Economy | ECO EVOLUTION TODAY | Scoop.it
Rapid growth and obsolete laws already put a lot of strain on the digital infrastructure. Unless industry and governments act, it's going to get much worse

Don Dea's curator insight, December 7, 2014 11:49 PM

The digital infrastructure already is feeling the strain, despite private-sector investment that now tops $300 billion per year. That’s because the challenges are not just financial. Europe, for example, has been slow to adopt certain technological advances, taking it “from digital leader to laggard in less than a decade,”

7 smart swaps that will get you closer to a plastic-free life

7 smart swaps that will get you closer to a plastic-free life | ECO EVOLUTION TODAY | Scoop.it
But there's so much more disposable plastic out there, meaning we have a lot more work to do — and not a moment too soon. Our plastic problem is growing, and it's ending up literally everywhere, from inside the fish we eat to microplastics in the salt we use to flavor our food. At this point, we've created a geological layer that will be left behind for tens of thousands of years. If we all disappeared tomorrow, aliens could land 50,000 years from now and find a geological layer of plastic 50 years thick. So that's our legacy? A layer of plastic blanketing the Earth?
Al Cannistra's insight:

if we all dies tomorrow - 50,000 years from now......   they would still find PLASTIC! - that is a bothersome statement - perhaps time to correct the mistake....
