“At the G5 annual meeting of 2084, China comes up with a proposal, ‘If animals can learn to eat plastic, why can’t children?’ Soon after, India and China start introducing plastic as part of the standard school meals. The experiment is a smashing hit. It isn’t long before the US, Canada and the EU follow suit. Plastic becomes the most popular snack. These school children grow into young adults, and into parents, and then into grandparents. The demand becomes so great that now all the oil in the world does not make enough plastic to feed all the generations.”
