All this time I thought I was a Right Winger, but it turns out I'm not. After reviewing as much of the list as I could stand, the only assertion I found with which I agree at all is that some recycling programs are not cost effective. Recycling aluminum certainly is, it supports the drinking habits of my neighbors under the viaduct. Aluminum production is one of the largest consumers of electricity in the world, and reducing that, not reducing waste, is the benefit. If recycling paper were cost effective, I wouldn't know about a Chicago suburban district paying rent on a warehouse full of rotting "recycled" paper they can't find a taker for.
