...and California makes MILLION$$$ with the CRV program because ppl are so ignorant that they still throw away millions and millions of beverage containers each year! and get this: if you make more than $500-$600 a month recycling, California requires you to pay taxes on the ‘income’!

My question is, would cleaning the aluminum can out and just press in another tab opener be more efficient, instead of melting it down just to make it again?

1:43 It's neither, because English is not a prescriptive language and multiple pronounciations for a single word can and will be completely valid to the point of being implemented in most dictionaries.

It's a shame that the U.S.A. sends most of their waste products to be recycled to foreign nations and then we repurchased these same product at a more expensive cost . Why don't we recycle our trash right here in the U.S.A. ? 😒

Cans and bottles and basic "town" crap ended up along the county road which split my Iowa farm. One nice autumn day in 1977, having consumed too much (actually, as it turned out, it was the right amount) cold beer with a couple of neighboring farmers, I began to rant about all the crap along my land frontage. One farmer jokingly suggested that I call my congressman. Everyone laughed but me. So, I grab my phone, call information to find out my congressman's number, and actually him to give him Hell. I suggested at least a 5-cent charge like the old "pop" bottles back in the day. What happens next? Iowa begins to charge a nickel per bottle or can. The pragmatic, no change, no progressive Conservatives blew a head gasket. But, the law prevailed. Recycling came into being in Iowa just because some half-drunk Iowa farmers called a congressman (Well, actually I called). So, sue me.

And here we are in 2020 facing a nationwide can shortage in the USA. No shortage of aluminum, the can plants can't keep up with demand. Beverage manufacturers are only making their core products now.

Alumium is the correct one. All three are correct actually. They simply have different meaning. Alumium is what the material should be called. Aluminum is "alumium" with the ending -inum which means something that COMES FROM or is RELATED TO alumium. Aluminium has the ending -ium which simply means "small aluminum", an extract from something aluminum maybe.

“Every year we save energy recycling aluminum stuff to run the whole of India” - really, Mr. Natural Scientist?? India consumes about 2000 Twh of energy every year just from the power grids!!

If “we” means the world, then it’s still not enough to power all of India, but it’s closer than you might think. The world recycles 20 Mt of Al annually, to produce a ton from ore requires about 20 MWh, so the total would be 400 TWh.

No manufacturing aluminum cans is materials science not rocket science. Just because some materials on a rocket are made of aluminum doesn't make it rocket science. I doubt astronauts would put their lives in that guys hands, they might put his cans in their hand though...
