2/25 (五) 思,英語討論會 2:Waste = Food

The Video: Waste = Food

Discussion Question: Today we’re just going to go through the statements one by one and discuss our reactions.

Statements made in the video:
1. Waste is food for growth.
2. All waste from a factory should be safe to go back into the soil, so it can literally be used to grow food.
3. Design everything to become a nutrient.
4. Materials that don’t become food for the biosphere should become food for the technosphere.
5. We don’t actually recycle products. We downcycle products, they lose quality as they’re used. True recycling means they can be used to make the same thing, or something higher quality.
6. It’s time for humans to think of themselves as one of the species on this planet, and make the other species on the planet happy that we are here.
7. Less bad = no good. Defining environmental protection as destroying a little less, is misusing the term ‘protection’. Destroying less doesn’t protect anything.
