So typical of other failed environutcake ideas, dump billions on it and hope it goes away then move to the next shiny object when it fails.
Note the not just any landfill, a responsibly managed one cover comment.

Actually, that isn't totally dumb. I am aware of a Canadian study that show that very little of the plastic put into the recycle stream actually gets recycled for a variety of reasons.

Working like hell to minimize or eliminate use of disposable plastic items is a great goal.

And I am a big fan of pursuing nukes for electrical generation.
