[GreenYes] Re: message from David Biddle

I looked at this cover and wondered what the meaning was, and I don't think
it says anything very positive about recycling. It is called "A Clear
Conscience" by Bruce McCall. For those who haven't seen it, it is a painting
of a guy shipwrecked on a tiny tropical island about 25' across with a
single palm tree and a dozen or so recycling and hazardous waste containers
of various types.

I think the message the artist is trying to convey is that people FEEL they
are doing their part to help global warming when they do little things like
recycle, but to change the course of global warming people are going to need
to do a lot more than that. Not only is recycling not the answer, but the
artist is saying it lulls people into a dangerous sense of complaisancy.
