First Global Warming, Now Recycling?!?!

Could reason and logic finally be creeping into the most hallowed halls of the Church of Environmentalism? It looks like some governments may be carrying the recycling thing a bit too far.

From The Examiner in Washington, DC....

But some national recycling experts have begun calling for government restraint in trash recycling, which can be more costly and environmentally damaging than dumping.

"We just assume recycling is always better," said J. Winston Porter, president of the Waste Policy Center, an environmental consulting and policy organization. "But there's a point at which you shouldn't just recycle for recycling's sake."

Porter is a former policy administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency who helped set the federal government's first nationwide recycling targets.
