Well now; this is pretty funny. Hilarious even. I’ve seen most of their four seasons of episodes, but this one from season two on recycling got by me.

    I've heard of this show. I would love to see it, but I think it is on HBO.

    They acknowledged that aluminum recycling is financially viable. Nothing else is, and if communities are running programs that are overall self-sufficient, it is only because the profits from aluminum offset the losses from others.

    Please don't accept the Bullsh*t Penn and Teller are spreading as fact. P & T are entertaininers and magicians (and a key skill of magicians is making things disappear, as they have with the facts in this case). They are not professionals in the recycling industry and have clearly not done their due diligence on this topic. If they had, they would have found that a great number of communities are running financially sustainable recycling programs – in fact, recycling makes great sense, not just financially, but from a perspective of just plain being smart with our finite natural resources. These great illusionists have created a falst illusion around recycling, and are doing a disservice to an essential industry, and to anyone that needs natural resources (i.e., all of us) in the process.
