    Plastic, because carbon emission is considered a minor issue in comparison. In our economy, we base the level of an issue by how hard to easy it is to resolve it. Since emission control is more manageable than plastic, then my vote for the bigger threat is plastic.

    Both are huge problems, and one doesn’t minimize the other. Carbon Emissions are a big problem because they are one of the main drivers of Climate Change (along with Deforestation and Factory Farming). Carbon Emissions are clearly a cause of Climate Change, which means that they harm and endanger wildlife, contribute to rising sea levels, and cause respiratory disease because of their contribution to smog and air pollution. We can combat the harms of Carbon Emissions by - Switching to renewable sources of energy (Solar and Wind), Preserving trees and areas with a lot of trees (like the Amazon Rainforest), and developing technologies to suck CO2 and other gases out of the air. Plastic Pollution is a threat to wildlife. Sea life end up ingesting and sometimes dying from these plastics. Plastics also leech harmful chemicals onto the soil. You can help reverse the trend by - Reusing glass/stainless steel bottles (getting a home water filter) & shopping w/ own reusable bag at the store.

    China is the bigger problem. China is polluting or oceans with plastic. China is polluting our air and impacting our environment with CO2 release. China is polluting out democrat party with money.

    • You hit it on the head.  Nothing we do here in America will have a real effect on the environment if China keep polluting.  Let's not forget they put a whole lot of other toxins in the environment.

    Plastics in the oceans and rivers. CO2 emissions are not an issue.
