Recycle Your House and Encourage More Mining!



No doubt about it, it's a cool house! But, she may be deluding herself on how she's saving the earth's finite resources.
If they are indeed finite, then, the "recycling" she diverted to her home won't be recycled into anything else, thus new minerals will have to be mined and processed to make up for what she consumes. And that would probably be more than if she used a renewable resource...like trees to frame her house!

  1. That is ridiculous. I knew it had to be in California, 99.9% of those people are nuts out there.

  3. Actually, I don't begrudge her a unique home, and like I said, it's pretty cool! But the looney tunes idea that she is somehow "saving resources" and saving the planet by hauling that thing up the mountain by helicopter, when a couple of flatbeds of lumber and sheetrock could have done the same job, is mildly delusional.
