If that is how closed minded you are, so be it. Science is behind what I say, we are more likely to die of ecological disaster than ebola, but the popular mind would rather write racist paranoid zombie apocolypse narratives. My current studies are in ecology and I volunteer with the Audubon society in a program involving Los Angeles County Schools, and one of the things we teach the children is about petroleum and plastics. If it's good enough for L.A. county schools, it's still not good enough for you. We also have a plastic bag ban here. California has historically been a link to the future, culturally. We don't just have Hollywood but also a lot of tech people and scientists, and anti establishment individual forward thinkers. I certainly feel more at home here than in West Virginia where coal companies have no problem letting their chemicals leak into the major water supply.
