It is such a crack up to me when I see so much talk about "going green". I see too much irony in what is being said, and WHAT the person or group actually does. It doesn't add up to me.
We recycle (we get points for coupons in our city), and I'm not a tree hugger. So I was amused to see our coupon come in the mail along with the information about what plastic water bottles do to our environment, YET, right there on the same page was how Evian water is sooo good for our environment (of course, in a plastic bottle!) LOL
I love IKEA, but find it ironic that they say how environmentally correct they are about their products, but, hang, much of their stuff is junk that won't last long and will be found in the landfill inside of 5 years. You can't repurpose their furniture b/c its so cheaply made.
What a crackup. What examples have you found that make you wonder what the real deal is? LOL

The process of mfg a nickel battery for a hybrid is more toxic than the effects of regular combustion engines.
The black areas are charred bedrock, completely uninhabitable. The smoke coming from the smelter is sulfer, which aside from the toxic fumes itself, poisons plants and wildlife and creates acid rain. That's just the mining of the nickel - it's not even going into the environmental impact of shipping the nickel from Canada to China and then the battery to the US, or the mfg process. But at least those hybrid cars use a few less gallons of fossil fuels, right?
