Quote – John Tierney. The New York Times Magazine.

Journalists...did a remarkable job of creating the garbage crisis...Mandatory recycling programs aren't good for posterity. They offer mainly short-term benefits to a few groups -- politicians, public relations consultants, environmental organizations, waste-handling corporations -- while diverting money from genuine social and environmental problems.

John Tierney, libertarian journalist. From the New York Times Magazine, “Recycling is Garbage.”
