    This is fantastic! The igus:bike will help with the world's plastic pollution problems a lot! I can't believe a single adult bike gives new life to about 35 pounds of plastic that would otherwise clog landfills or waterways! Did you know that a plastic cup can take 50 - 80 years to decompose? And an estimated 13 billion plastic bottles are disposed of each year? Or that plastic bags and other plastic garbage thrown into the ocean kill as many as 1 million sea creatures every year? I believe this revolutionary advancement in our effort to reduce plastic waste will most definitely help both us and wildlife!

    True, but I disagree. Dinosaurs were better equipped for days of rain or even days of droughts. It was just part of their development and evolution. However, in modern times, climate change is indeed changing the climate of our planet. For example, heat is one of the most deadly weather phenomena. As ocean temperatures drastically rise, hurricanes are getting stronger and wetter, which can cause direct and indirect deaths. Dry conditions lead to more wildfires, which bring many health risks. Higher incidences of flooding can lead to the spread of waterborne diseases, injuries, and chemical hazards. As geographic ranges of mosquitoes and ticks expand, they can carry diseases to new locations. And it's not just us. The Arctic is one of the ecosystems most vulnerable to the effects of climate change, as it is warming at least twice the rate of the global average and melting land ice sheets and glaciers contribute dramaticallyoffsite link to sea level rise around the globe.
