That would be worse... playing both sides.  We get enough of that from 
the "Clinton-E-stahs" that think we as the general public are stupid and 
not capable of reasoning.

doesn't make it sound reasoning. History is full of failing idears that 
was "catching on" at the time.  Most of it looks be another lemming 
episode that the enviros trap unknowing folks with.

My advice, look before your leap, even as a company.  Even good sounding 
idears can be a trap.  Then follow the money.  Most of the time it's 
corrupt an/or foolish when it's political, and environmentalism is 95% 
political in the pretense of good intentions.

   wind power and solar are the most expensive power sources. Go nuke if 
you really care for the environment, yet don't despise humans.

As for the recycling, the GRX folks are the best alternative I could 
find for eRecycling at a local level, and that is the point here... 
doing waste disposal better than before, not wasting money on the latest 
fad just because others appear to be gullible.  So it remains, my 
impression of xmission (as a progressive company only, not in their 
services nor personnel) went down when the lemming-like feel-good 
intentions came out for a fad.
