Campus car theft on rise

The University of Arizona Police Department sent out a warning to all students and faculty regarding an increase in criminal activity on university surface parking lots.

"Americans have embraced recycling as a transcendental experience, an act of moral redemption ... we're performing a rite of atonement for the sin of excess." This is how John Tierney, a reporter for The New York Times Magazine, characterized the fervor surrounding recycling in 1996.

Recycling programs have the best of intentions, and indeed any development of a "conservation ethic" is constructive. The problem: Solely developing a recycling ethic is not tantamount to developing a conservation ethic. Too much emphasis on recycling versus the other two R's - renewal and reuse - can be dangerous.
