[GreenYes] Good Morning America on recycling

Are people on the list-serve familiar with this story:

This video interview of Stephen Dubner, co-author of Freakonomics, actually contends that it is economically and environmentally infeasible to recycle paper (paraphrased). It made my blood boil, especially since I am chairing a Mass. Recycles Paper! campaign ( through MassRecycle based on the economic and environmental benefits of increasing paper recovery.
Many of us in Mass. are sending letters of protest. You too may send comments to

Subject: [MassRecycle] Good Morning America on recycling

There was an alarming piece on Good Morning America on Wednesday July 18: , in which an interviewee who is discussing which recycling activities are worthwhile and which are not, states that paper recycling is probably not worth it, and we should probably just go for paper products made of virgin pulp. Shall we all respond individually to ABC with our own versions of why we think paper recycling is valuable? Or do we want to respond as an organization?
