The fiftieth anniversary of the first Earth Day of 1970 will be in 2020. As environmentalism has gone mainstream during that half-century, it has forgotten its early focus and shifted toward green capitalism. Nowhere is this more apparent than abandonment of the slogan popular during the early Earth Days: “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.” | By Don Fitz

I'll provide but one example to support this article, an example I can't claim credit for, since it comes from Amory Lovins, at rmi.org.

Paraphrased: It is as if we're trying to fill a bathtub with never ending hot water. When in truth, all we need is a better drain plug, to hold the water in better.
