Word, Jerry

Lest we all forget, the environmental movement has merged with the money-making movement. This shortie from Jerry Bowles is summed up in the following quote:

Show me a good corporate environmental citizen and I’ll show you a company that is more concerned about cutting costs or saving money by eliminating waste from its processes than it is about melting Arctic ice floes. This is not a criticism. As a motivator of human behavior, short-term payback trumps long-range fear any day of the week. We all love our grandchildren, but what the heck.

Just brings the point back once again that what the hell is business doing out there? Most execs seem dedicated to do nothing more than analyze solutions that actually implement them. Even when the solutions will save them money. And if I use any more italics in this post I'll go nuts.
