[greenyes] Penn and Teller take on recycling


Penn and Teller, the irreverent and edgy comedy magicians are taking on
recycling, in the next episode of their documentary TV show "Bullshit!"
on the Showtime network, Thursday 4/29 at 10:00 pm. Eastern/pacific.
Their program claims as its purpose to debunk popular myths and "expose
the truth to an otherwise desperate and gullible public." No doubt the
segment will prove to be a hatchet job on recycling since the producers
were placing heavy reliance on "The Eight Great Myths of Recycling" and
comparably publications from the American Enterprise Institute and
Competitive Enterprise Institute.

I was interviewed for the segment, and I know interviews were conducted
with Neil Seldman of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance and Chaz
Miller of NSWMA. I don't know who among the vocal critics of recycling
will appear on the program.

I have not seen the tape and do not have cable service. If anyone out
there in GreenYes land is a Showtime subscriber, can tune in Thursday
night, and report back, that would be much appreciated. The show will
repeat next week, I think.
