Darn, just when I was thinking about investing in Soylent Green:
Citing the impact of the recession, Indiana's environmental agency has halted funding for state grant and loan programs that support recycling and pollution prevention -- a cutoff that will persist through at least through summer 2010.
[. . .]
Carey Hamilton, the executive director of the Indiana Recycling Coalition, said she's worried what the funding cutoff would mean for the nonprofit coalition's 160 member groups statewide involved in recycling, composting, source reduction and other efforts.
I have a suggestion. Open at least one new landfill in each of Indiana's 92 counties. There is plenty of land available -- contra the Green myth that "We are running out of landfill space!" -- and digging the holes and hauling the garbage would provide lots of jobs.
