Derwent has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!

According to the green lobby, one of the adverse effects of car use is the millions of tons of tyre dust we leave behind. Now we may well get 10k miles from a set of tyres on our road cars but but sometimes the "soft" tyres on F1 cars do less than 50 miles. There was a time when F1 one cars did not need to change tyres and in some cases did more than one race on a set.
Two questions come to mind:
a) Is using tyres with high war rates (in order to create a spectacle) in keeping with the need to make the sport green?
b) What happens to the thousands of used carcases made by Pirelli?
