    Bloomberg to De Blasio

    [Plastic-Foam Containers, if the Mayor Gets His Way By Michael M. Grynbaum] "...Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, whose regulatory lance has slain fatty foods, supersize sodas, and smoking in parks, is now targeting plastic foam, the much-derided polymer that environmentalists have long tried to restrict..."

    Seems reasonable to me. Exactly why is banning Styrofoam a bad thing? It's my planet too and I think it's a great idea.

    Who uses styrofoam anymore? I haven't seen it in ages, I barely even remember it. I just remember hearing it was bad for us and I rarely ever saw it again ?

    He didn't say "yes to drugs." Not even close.
    Mayor Michael Bloomberg rolled out the new policy during his State of the City address Thursday, announcing that possession in small quantities would only result in a trip to your local police precinct, a quick ID check for outstanding warrants and a notice to appear before a judge.

    With New York State considering legislation to similarly decriminalize small amounts of pot, Bloomberg said it was logical to follow suit with local enforcement.

    “I personally am not in favor of legalizing marijuana or any other drugs, I think it's a dangerous thing,” Bloomberg said Friday morning on the John Gambling radio show. “ But the reality is that for small amounts of marijuana there's an awful lot of kids that have it and you're just clogging the jails… you're clogging the courts, you're clogging the police.”

    Styrofoam cups, packaging peanuts, slabs for insulating packaging, forms for injection molding, flotation in boats, slabs for housing construction, cans for home use for sealing leaks - it's really a wonderful thing.

    Decriminalization is not legalization.

    It is still illegal, and if you do get caught with some, you will be fined, and have it confiscated.

    No one can refill their 16 ounce cup?

    "Around the country, progressive bullies have attacked Christians for daring to put their faith ahead of the pet causes of those who feign compassion while destroying life-giving liberties. What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet. Christians must be silenced and punished. Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson

    These can all be accomplished without the use of styrofoam.

    These are generally not the items include in a Styrofoam ban.

    I don't know enough about this to know if there is an alternative.

    Yep

    We used to see an awful lot of corn starch peanuts.

    Just rinse them down the drain!

    Of course, what's the energy and pollution cost of all that wasted water?





    I remember dazzling my kids when they were little by sticking a two inch by two inch stick of styrofoam two feet long into a 500 ml beaker of acetone.

    There are inert insulating foam products, such as Icynene, that use much less petroleum, substituting plant products such as castor oil for much of the petroleum used in them.

    Couldn't we make ethanol from them?
