P.S. I'm an environmental scientist myself. Did you know that in many areas incinerating paper is better than wasting fossil fuel trying to recycle it? 'Green products'? Like organic cotton or something? I suppose we have ecover who do detergents. Key thing is always sustainability. If the tax that was spent on petrol was really an 'environmental tax' and not actually a tax for generating money for the treasury, that money would be spent on rehabiliting areas affected by climate change (or relocating people), and in alternative (sustainable) energy activities. Pollution is NOT a problem if people pay the real environmental cost of that pollution AND the money actually goes to removing the pollution. Economics is the key. In S.Ireland, plastic bag use reduced to almost zero overnight when they charged a few cents for each bag in supermarkets. Fuel tax should go to developing sustainable energy sources.

1) Generally speaking, Do you recycle?
No, I do not, and never have. It all goes to the landfill.

2) Do you use any "green" product?
No, I don't. Green = mold, and I don't like mold.

3)Do you believe that using "green" products will create a impact on ecology?
No, I do not.

4)Did you know that over 11,000 million trees are cut annualy for distinct uses?
No, but quite frankly, I am willing to believe that figure.

5) Did you know that rain water can be used for irrigation and other services?
Yes, and we use it for that.

6)Do you have children (we wont stalk them:)?
No. I am not married (yet).

7) Do you think about the kind of world you are
leaving to future generations?
Yes, I do. Eliminating personal freedoms and liberties will leave this with nothing.

8) Did you know that grass can be used in your House's roof to keep temp. changes to the minimum,
And that it aids as impermiabelizer (or w/e)?
Yes. Settlers used to plant grass on the roof of their cabins. It seems they were smarter than we are now.

9)Do you know of any company that excels at selling green products?
No, I do not. I take no interest in it.

Once again, Thank you for your time!

Pretty weak question list if you ask me.

About 8: who the hell would use that?

Nobody would isolate his house with grass. That would just be stupid.

Is the concept of isolating a house not known in the US or something?

Here it's is mandatory.
