Hey Alex —
I think I understand what you are saying and appreciate your careful efforts —
I think the point at issue is the following —
Having a causal impact on the creation of something is not the same as having a causal impact on that thing having a negative impact on the environment.
Those two things are certainly correlated, but it’s very difficult to prove that one thing actually has a causal impact on another — per all we know, plastic didn’t have to end up being harmful, and per what we know, there is no information that tells us intentions had a direct role in causing plastic to be harmful.
I hope that clears it up, and if you have any more follow up don’t hesitate to let me know — MK
