[greenyes] hats off to ILSR

Greetings all,

There's an interesting "thought-piece" at

And in the article the author says:

"Environmentalists seem to have lost their grip on the big picture, too.
Recycling was sold to the American public as a way to "protect nature"
(presumably by saving landfill space, limiting the incineration of trash,
and reducing energy required to mine virgin resources). You can still find
this at web sites for major national organizations. But the truth is,
recycling was, and is, about altering the economy of this country. Groups
like the <> Institute for Local Self-Reliance have
worked hard to keep that vision at the forefront of the equation, but
they've almost been drowned out by the hot, dark, wet maw of green
attorneys, scientists, PR specialists, and activists seeking funding for
other causes of import-the Apollo Alliance included.

I'm glad to see ILSR (Neil Seldman and Brenda Platt) getting some
long-overdue credit !!
