Years ago I heard that the Japanese were compressing garbage then coating the blocks with tar or something and using the blocks to fill in swamps and to build roads. Whatever happened to that idea?
What used to be called swamps are now called wetlands. Filling them in is ruining our environment.http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/26/opinions/earth-from-space-climate-change-opinion-mark-kelly/index.html

This year has been an unequivocal disaster for the future of the planet. President Donald Trump has managed to take a wrecking ball to years' worth of hard work and painstaking negotiations. If not undone, our retreat from the Paris Climate cords and the EPA's Clean Power Plan alone mean our planet's temperature will rise at a greater rate and our citizen's health will degrade. Other changes in environmental regulations on drilling and auto and appliance efficiency will only make matters worse.
