I once talked about how one can get carried away, in the name of saving the planet, being safe, and all that jazz (Keeping an open mind, dated Feb 19, 2013). There’s more to it than just Chemophobia and Global Warming. How about some ‘political economy of recycling’?
Preconceived notions about sustainability and being a part of the green revolution as a victim of mass hysteria, can actually do more harm than good. I would like to cite an example and a wonderful article by Michael C. Munger.
