Re: E-M:/ Deforestation, Dioxin, and No Commercial Logging! -Reply

Enviro-Mich message from DavidOrr@aol.com

It's really depressing to see that the paper industry is plying its 
deadly destructive propaganda trade here on this email list.  (Is this 
list sponsored by the Sierra Club???)

EPA own figures say that 50% of the volume of landfills in this country 
is paper.

We only waste paper because it's so cheap.  And it's so cheap because the 
paper industry makes so much of it.  And making so much of it results in 
massive environmental problems.

So try and dress it up and cover it up as much as you want, Mr. Paper 
Industry Man, you still have deforestation and dioxin coming out your, 
uh, pipe.  

Stopping logging is the only way I know of to stop this madness.
