Scientists review the crucial ways plastic pollution and the climate crisis are linked. More research on climate alone exists compared to plastic and compared to plastics and climate, though important connections have recently been made with reports like those made by Beyond Plastics and CIEL. The researchers emphasize how a failure to recognize the connections between plastic pollution and climate change prevent successful mitigation, as well as the connections between plastic pollution and livelihoods, human rights, and colonialism.
