Lots of stories .There's a story here...
Very difficult to prove the negative, if I can't find the proof to support the claim it is likely that the evidence to disprove it doesn't exist either. I mean, prove Bigfoot doesn't exist. Perhaps your googlefu is better than mineSo check it. If you’re so tired of this claim floating around without validation, take the initiative and find the facts for yourself.

I mean at least quote me correctlyWeird it was taken that way.
He says, "Please learn to think for yourself". Not directed at you.....
I don't think semantics would invalidate a point. That is like not listening to Stephen Hawking because he sounds like a robot. I ALWAYS listen to robots.I mean at least quote me correctly
I guess you missed the part later on where I specifically felt compelled to differentiate someone on the forum from the public context of your. It really was not meant to be directed at you, buy you a beer sometime.
While we are on semantics my posts have already been invalidated by my misspelling of whether, a misquote of damn rather than damned, and my inability to disprove a claim with no evidence to dispute.
Do some ground work, pick up the phone and call some companies that produce plastic bags, find some plastics experts to talk to, hit the books. Those are some simple research techniques that will garner hard data, and in turn that data will either prove or disprove the claim that it takes around 22 gallons of water to produce a plastic bag. The difference between this and Bigfoot is that plastic bags exist, we know who makes them and we can find out how with relatively little effort.Very difficult to prove the negative, if I can't find the proof to support the claim it is likely that the evidence to disprove it doesn't exist either.

Not sure how the burden of proof falls on my shoulders, I simply questioned a statement for which no supporting evidence has been provided.
That is where I got my initial 22 gallons for a pound of plastic. I didn't read every work cited at the end so I am not sure if that number is found there.
