Is green gas and CO2 impacting climate change?

Recommended Posts

Compared to the crap that gets spewed out by shipping and all the coal fired powerstations we're gonna need to re-open so we can all drive teslas its a drop in the ocean.

I think the plastic we spray all over the countryside might be more of a problem 😂

This. Use of green gas will have F-all impact climate change. But spraying tons of plastic all over the countryside isn't such a great idea and will - ultimately - become regulated in the UK, in the same way it is in the Netherlands.

 

I must admit I use plastic BBs myself. I mostly run a GBBR and bio-BBs aren't well suited to it, but if they were I'd be happy to switch.

 

In fact this cropped up recently for a mate of mine who runs a paintball site in Hereford. He was approached by a local airsoft group wanting to use the land, but the landowner didn't want them on site due to use of plastic BBs (apparently the paintball ammo they use is biodegradable). So they tested a bunch of bio-BBs by leaving them out to compost for a month, and after that time they hadn't degraded at all... and the landowner decided to turn down the airsofters.

 

So I think there's some way to go before bio-BBs become a viable option for both players and landowners. But it will happen.

I have a plastic glass on my balcony with a bunch of Bioval 0.30s in it. Completely exposed to sun and rain.

 

The glass is almost done, the bbs are still intact.

 

I bought that bag of BBs 4 years ago.

Bio BB is made of PLA. It is decomposed by the bacteria in the ground. In normal situations it takes over 100 years to decompose it. In recycling centers they keep it on 60C and feed bacteria to it, and it decomposes in 6 months.

In that bottle it will decompose in 1000+ years.

Still much better than non bio, which is ABS.

Also, PLA is made of corn or tapioca starch while ABS is made from oil.
