Eco Wackos

In my previous domicile, we had those recycling bins for cans, glass, paper, glossy paper, plastic, and the bin for whatever did not go into the others.

Then one day I happened to see the trash removal service come by, and they simply dumped all the bin contents into the trash truck, mixing it all back up.

I stopped the truck driver and inquired what was going on, and he reported that the recycling center set up (at public expense) to handle all this sorted detritus had gone bust, because it costs more to recycle some materials than to manufacture from scratch. But the law requiring trash to be separated had never been repealed, so we mere taxpayers wasted hours of time putting cans and bottles into the correct slots, only to have the trash company mix it all back together and dump it in a landfill.

Folks, I keep telling you, this global warming scam is all about sticking the people with more taxes and creating a new "product" out of thin air than can be bought and sold and "enronized" to make the insiders very rich at your expense.

European observers have already pointed out that their cap and credit system has made certain individuals very rich, but has not demonstrably improved the environment. Polluters are still polluting; they just have a license (which consumers ultimately pay for) to do so.
