Ok here is my crazy idea.  So we pull a bunch of petroleum out of the earth all of the time. We are also buried under ever increasing piles of plastic products that are breaking down and causing all sorts of unforseen issues.  Plastic is petroleum. We burn petroleum as an energy source and are going to continue for quite a while. Why not burn the plastics?  Yes there will be engineering hurdles to make sure its not more of an environmental disaster and the owners of the petroleum complex will hate it.  But really why not use an essentially free fuel source. Its kind of a twofer energy wise almost like energy recycling.
