Plastic is Everywhere

Whilst it is great to see that plastics have earnt a well deserved position at number 6 we should note that the success of 1) Drinking or potable water; 3) Antibiotics; 4) Electricity generation (from fossil fuels); 5) Vaccines; Sanitation; 9) Electricity generation (from non-fossil fuels); 10) Dosed medications (such as tablets, pills and capsules) are highly dependent on plastics for their manufacture, distribution or delivery.
On that basis perhaps plastics should really be considered the most important, as the key enabling industry of the 20th and 21st Century!
