    It probably won't happen. Every other year, there's reports of some new genetically engineered strain of yeast that eats plastic, oil spills, radioactive waste, crusty jizz stains, unrecyclable trash, whatever. It never makes it out into the real world because it's all propaganda by the petrochemical industry to maintain the status quo while giving us hope that things will get better.

      >because it's all propaganda by the petrochemical industry to maintain the status quo while giving us hope that things will get better.
      Pretty much this. The entire plastic recycling industry is a scam created by petrochemical conglomerates. They were literally the ones that made up the obfuscated recyling symbols (non-recyclable plastics purposely have nearly identical symbols as recyclable ones) so people think every bit of plastic they're throwing in the bin is getting recycled, whereas only 5% of it actually is. Instead of improving recycling technologies or employing existing ones like Japan does, they just spend more money on propaganda (the infographics that tell you what the symbols mean that very few people actually pay attention to).

      But hey! It makes consumers feel better!

        In many places plastic is just burnt. This is a per-city thing and even in some places where plastic is separated from burnable trash, it's still burnt because frick you.

      Unironically, it's because landfills and recycling centers are huge business. If ordinary people could compost their plastic waste, an American capitalist might lose some money.

        It won’t? Fungi are probably pound for pound the most incredible organisms in the world but we’re still a far cry away from harvesting the vast majority of what they can do for our own needs.

          depends on if you count economics as politics but it does cost money to send things to space and it's not cost-effective to do it out of your own pocket just because it's squeaky clean here on earth. Also, non-0 chance it blows up and everyone blames you for an economic disaster.

    Unless they engineer a super strain that can process most types of plastic and has an extremely alarming growth rate with little ways to counter it, we're good.

    But most likely, this headline is trash and it only works with a very specific kind of plastic that first went through some transformation in negligible quantities.
