Climate idea

Tires are saving us — and killing us, too

Tires do not decompose. When tires pile up in landfills or junkyards, they can release chemicals into the air, ground, and water that alter the ecosystem. Just sitting in the sun, a waste tire releases methane gas into the air. This greenhouse gas increases our carbon footprint and can contribute to climate change

    I believe technology can help us find the perfect environmental friendly replacement for tires.

      Tire manufacturers should wane waste and harmful negative impacts on the environment.

        The idea is good but my greatest concern is the recycling of this tires we need to have proper structure to prevent emissions since it doesn't decompose

          @rotich_kim sure, we need strict rules to reduce its production and at the same time a well laid structure to find an alternative in the long run.

              @munene_mugambi There is a company that recycles tires somewhere.

                @princess_nel_268 recycling could play a major role in ensuring that there is less tires lying around..

                Sounds more as an environmental hazard that must be dealt with entirely. Anything that contributes to carbon footprint should be stopped or rather managed.
