In a CleanTechnica article taken from The Beam, it is stated that:
As is often the case in developed markets, we only create one job for every 10,000 tons of goods produced
Thanks to Oddthinking, I understand that the author wants to say that only one job is needed to incinerate 10000 tons of waste.
Is this really a realistic figure? How can one job incinerate 10^7 kg of goods. (I suppose it implicitly says that such goods are produced in one year of work of a person.)
Given that a year has 31536000 seconds (~3*10^7) it must only take 3 seconds for a single person to incinerate one kg of goods.
Maybe the author meant in a lifetime?
Even that second estimate looks too high to me.
