    The tenderness of the delicate American buttock is causing more environmental devastation than the country's love of gas-guzzling cars, fast food or McMansions, according to green campaigners. At fault, they say, is the US public's insistence on extra-soft, quilted and multi-ply products when they use the bathroom.
    "This is a product that we use for less than three seconds and the ecological consequences of manufacturing it from trees is enormous," said Allen Hershkowitz, a senior scientist at the Natural Resources Defence Council.

    Perhaps we should all be like Sheryl "One and Done" Crow.

    ""Now, I don't want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required," she wrote."

    Imagine all the waste that went into concocting this drivel. Then writing it, having it edited, re-writes and staff meetings...

    God what a listless generation.

    .....but the root of the problem it that they actually do beleive it....it is one of the Liberal top 5 religions..

    the zealots, Like radical Islam, are willing to be violent in defense of EnviroRadicalism.......they want the concept to be pushed at all

    Buy whole corn on the cob. Food, fuel and also classic "waste management". You could probably even use the husk as paper. Truly nature's perfect food.

    I have long lived by the old adage "Take it like a man and wipe it with your hand".
