Edit: Reading what I wrote may have came off wrong. Not life that created the plastic. The plastic formed using petrochemicals. (read, crude oil)
I see the logic of my statement exceeded your understanding so I will explain in more detail.
If I claim today, "The Cowboys won the Super Bowl!" it is not big news as it has not happened. If in 20 years, the Cowboys win a Super Bowl, I cannot come back and say, "See? I told you so!"
Never did I doubt there was news forthcoming of some kind. My statement was to yet again rail against news releases about "big news" when there is no big news as that time. Sure, there may be big news in the future, a month from now or maybe even tomorrow. But making an announcement of "big news" without any details whatsoever is nothing more than hyperbole.
