Paper producers including Kimberly-Clark - the maker of Cottonelle, Scott, Kleenex and Viva tissue paper products - are forcing the destruction of our continent's forests, and devastating the habitat for countless wildlife species in the process. Kimberly-Clark, and others, could change their policies and make use of recycled fiber, but instead choose to buy untouched pulp from those who log deep in North American forests. If Americans choose more environmentally based tissue products, we could help expedite Kimberly-Clark's adoption of recycled fibers.
I need to correct Grateful Web over their bias over the impact of oil and gas on the environment. First of all... the production that bush wants to open up in Colorado is GAS. Gas is very clean, not only for burning, but also to drill and produce. An average house in Boulder is far, far worse for the environment then either an oil or gas well. It only take a few weeks to drill a well, where a house is pretty much permanent. An oil well normally has a 20 year life span... if the producer is lucky.
