How fossil fuel producers are lobbying to fight against the end of plastic

Practically all plastic that is used in the world is made out of fossil fuel, generating CO2 during production and creating enormous amount of pollution. As the world starts to wake up to this fact, fossil fuel producers such as ExxonMobil, BP, Chevron and more are orchestrating huge lobbying efforts to promote non-solutions (such as recycling) rather than the reduction or complete stop of plastic production.
This article from NPR sheds light on the lobbying efforts of those firms:

    Shameful! It's appalling that fossil fuel companies prioritize their profits over the health of our planet and its inhabitants.

      Sad for fuel producers to aim only on profits without considering the wellness of our climate.

        it is unfortunate to see how selfish these oil industries are and how far they can go to make profits even if it means pushing humanity to extinction

          Greed will be the end of us and our planet if we keep making the same stupid decisions over and over again

            @winnie_nguru for better results for climate action companies must focus on doing the right thing without focusing on the output they get financially, greed is danger to the planet.

            Very concerning indeed, the fossil fuel producers don't care about the environment, they only care about the profit

              @elizbeth_gathigia this is dangerous, we need more regulations to stop production of this fossil fuels entirely.

              This is disappointing as fossil fuels producers remain a nuisance in the whole process of saving our planet

                It's disheartening to observe fossil fuel producers actively lobbying against efforts to end plastic usage.

                  It's concerning to see fossil fuel producers lobbying against the end of plastic, especially when we are witnessing the damaging effects of plastic pollution on the environment. It's important for policymakers to prioritize sustainable alternatives and regulations to reduce plastic usage.

                    @walter_lungayi Indeed, it's deeply concerning that fossil fuel producers are lobbying against ending plastic usage, despite the evident environmental damage from plastic pollution.

                    Stop buying lego and other plastic products as a start - each person can make a difference if waiting for oil companies to make a difference is ever going to work...

                          @lucinda_ramsay I agree. We buy lots of plastic things that we use in our Daily lives and sometimes we don't think much of it.

                              @gorffly_mokua It's truly disappointing to witness the focus of fossil fuel producers solely on massive profits, disregarding the environmental repercussions of their actions.
