Seems BPA can be a lot more active than previously thought.

Are totally overused and grossly misused by a society that is mostly addicted to artifice and that fails to consider or take personal responsibility.
They rise out of the pertro chemical industry which are the criminal minds that have kepts this world locked into the hydrocarbon model.
Its the exact same paradigm that runs the military industrial complex, federal reserve, and the criminal banking system, all of which would not exist in a sane society but only in one where psychopaths have gained total rulership of mostly programmable feudal slaves who believe they are free in an ever increasing Orwellian Police state.

The use of plastics needs to be totally re-thought with intelligence and they need to be moved out of places where they do not belong by sane people making choices, rather than moving in lockstep with big bad corporatism.

Tell us how you really feel. (Kidding)

Interesting article though. I wonder what oil prices would be like if our society's use of plastcs was lower

It's hard to say. High demand means lots companies have incentive to develop new sources and technologies, creating competition which pushes prices down. Low demand would mean fewer people developing oil, less competition, less-efficient extraction, and so prices would be higher. So it's kind of a push/pull thing.

If there's lots of money to be made, but low barriers to entry, everyone will pile on, driving long-run profits toward zero. If the profits aren't as good, or the barriers are higher, then there will be less competition, and profits will remain higher than if the former case were true.

So the next time you're lamenting all the 'red tape' you have to deal with in your brewery, be sure to appreciate that the red tape is keeping you employed, even though if you're a small brewery you're operating at a really high point on the long-run average cost curve.

Is the plastic liner in a can BPA free?

Not so far. I believe they are experimenting with alternate 'plasticizers'.

Likely just as bad.
