Can't find a recent article stating how recycling is bad. any help would be nice? Topic: Bad research article
July 18, 2019 / By Meriel
Question: i'm doing a speech on how recycling (primarily papers and plastics) is worse for the environment than using it for other uses...or just burying it. and i know that is not the best thing to do either. we all know that if we are to bury stuff it needs to be biodegradable, but thats not the issue here. i am having trouble finding an article dated 6 months to a year old (no older) giving a real life example of how recycling paper or plastic is worse for the environment than making it anew. any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

Start looking into E-Waste and how it is recycled. Many old computer and electronic components (E-Waste) that are "recycled" in the United States are shipped overseas, where pollution regulations are much more lax. Thus, they can separate out the precious metals from the equipment using processes that are dangerous for the workers and pollute the environment. I started doing some research on this for you, but rapidly ended up with too many web sites. Search for words like Electronics Recycling and then China or India. Other than that, I'd be hard-pressed to think of a way that recycling is bad. Good luck!

Leonora Originally Answered: Recent article criticizing democracy?
We do not really believe there is a way to implement a true democracy, where a true democracy would have decisions made by the people or even by a group of wise people who really represent the people. We have abandoned that ideal in favor of a system that does not really ask people how they want to be represented. Do people really want to be represented on the basis of where they live? Not everyone, not by a long shot. Some people would wish to be represented in terms of their occupation, their religion, their views on specific issues. How can I ever consider someone from my state who shares nothing in common with me as representing me. It is not that I would want you to be represented the way I would want to be represented. I just want to be represented as I wish to be represented, based on what I feel is most important. And I want to be able to change that. You can see that giving me this ability is very difficult, but that is why we do not even try. We avoid anything difficult. Even within our geographic representation we do not stay with the principle that a voter in one area has the same representation as a voter in another area. As for instance a voter in Nova Scotia has several times more influence over Canada's parliament than a voter in Ontario. I think a similar disparity is present in the US senate. We just do not really believe that having voters equally represented really matters. Now, because the senators elected do not really represent the voters of that state, I have to agree that equality of geographic representation does not matter at all. If we really believed that we get better government because of this geographic representation, we might spend some effort to get everyone more equally represented. But people who are over-represented do not care about democracy enough to give up that skewed representation. We prefer to be over-represented rather than have a fair democracy says we do not care about democracy. And that indifference is understandable.

You're going to have a hard time finding that because recycling is good. It's like trying to find a paper within the last 6 months or even years for that matter stating how smoking is not bad for your health. It just isn't going to happen. Enort... That may be true but the point of recycling is to save resources not energy.

While I don't fully agree with it, I did hear a student presentation on this and found it interesting. At any rate, a site I found, and I'm sure a little more effort and you'll be able to find something even more reputable: Jan 24, 2007: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article...

Comprehensive sites such as CNN's Spanish-language site have sprung up within the past few years, and more newspapers, including ones with strong international content, are making their way online.
