    [–] TIL Farmer who studied law himself for 16 years to sue a chemical firm for polluting his land won the first round Sumit316 4 points ago in todayilearned

    The farmer, who had dropped out of primary school at the third grade, started reading through a dozen law books with the help of a dictionary.

    At the time, he did not have money to buy the books, so he spent day after day reading the books at the local book store and copying the relevant information by hand, according to the man. In return, he would give bags of free corn to the shopkeeper for letting him stay there.

    That is some serious dedication but again it is proven that corn is the best crop while wheat is the worst.

    [–] More than 200 nations promise to stop ocean plastic waste Sumit316 1487 points ago in UpliftingNews

    Well according to the article

    China is the biggest producer of plastic waste but has started making efforts to cut down, UNEP head Erik Solheim said.

    “If there is one nation changing at the moment more than anyone else, it’s China ... the speed and determination of the government to change is enormous,” said Solheim.

    “While this is not a treaty, significant progress is being made ... 39 governments announced new commitments to reduce the amount of plastic going into the sea,” said the chief of public advocacy at UNEP, Sam Barrat.

    “Chile, Oman, Sri Lanka and South Africa today ... announced measures including plastic bag bans, new marine reserves and drives to increase recycling.”

    Even after some major countries pulling out, I think it is a great collective effort.

    I can understand but still there is no factual explanation for your question. People will just speculate based on the information they have which can be subjective. Hence I can't approve the question.
