6th December 2007 :: Beyond recycling

I am wondering how much recycling will really help. We have been changing things in order to prevent the environment and it doesn't seem to be working out. Instead of glass bottles, we decided to use plastic bottles for milk and other drinks and now we are worried about our landfills piled with non degradable plastic. We are thinking of finding alternative to fossil fuel but how effective it is going to be really. The electric scooters seem attractive but if everyone is driving those think about the amount of extra energy we will need and how is it going to be generated. Even if we make something that runs on something as easily available as water, how much would it help? In most cities we have a shortage of water, one can imagine the shortage of water, and real and manmade, if all cars run on it.
