Profit over common good


Arizona Corporation Commission doesn’t support biomass conversion of Cholla Power Plant to protect individual customer rates, so why should I care about the forest restoration project?

Payson Town Council discontinues recycling programs to save taxpayers money, so why should I care about recycling?

It’s fascinating to watch a civilization destroy itself for individual profit rather than do the right thing for the common good of all of us.

One simple question. Are you aware that products made with recycled material use a much higher level of fossil fuels that products made with natural material and they cost more to the consumer? Just take a minute and work that through your mind. More use of fossil fuels and higher cost to the consumer is somehow environment friendly?
