From The Oregonian:

The environmentalists, whose latest interest in matters of the toilet extends to the satanic pleasure of fluffy toilet paper, are laughable.

There may be carbon-based concern regarding wood-pulp use. If so, add such impacts to a carbon tax that allows fluffy toilet paper to compete with other carbon problems related to human activity.

Global warming is indeed a serious problem worthy of a serious, comprehensive solution. I would hope a more sane approach would build on our creativity, respond to our preferences and allow for differing utilities to be built into a market price.

The latest silly attempt at micro-managing our behavior by regulating the construction of toilet paper, however, reveals a petty totalitarian impulse in the environmental movement.

This impulse will do no good for our economy, our freedom or the environment.

    I agree, we need a more comprehensive approach to ending global warming. But maybe this TP debate will remind some people to just use less. Every little bit helps. http://www.newsy.com/videos/how_to_handle_the_wiping_effects
