I have always been irritated about some of the intellectual dishonesty of various ecological movements. In particular, I am frequently stunned by the hypocrisy of Hollywood stars who seem to love to spout out about the importance of global warming and greenhouse gases and how they just bought a hybrid car…after flying in from Morocco on their Gulfstream V for the latest award show celebrating famous people being famous for being famous. Or how about “Environmentalist” Al Gore whose house uses somewhere between ten and twenty times the US national average (US of course being world leaders in leaving a small environmental footprint)…but its ok, because he bought “carbon offset credits?”
I have always found recycling in general and of plastics in particular to be of negligible benefit and often extreme energy cost.
