NYTimes: Circulation Plunges at Major Newspapers

newspaperdeadIt's hard to discount viagra actually imagine how massive the www.supplychaincanada.com paper industry is; its impact on the environment, the carbon emissions, the waste, the trees used. But I like paper. I specifically like words, which make me part of my living and, as far as I'm concerned, make the world a much better place.

So I really really like words that don't have any paper. Like EcoGeek and Treehugger and NYTimes.com. But, with a great deal of respect to our physical forefathers, papers made of paper need to stop existing. Not 100% of them, and especially not the dedicated people who make them. Just the paper needs to go, not the words.

So please pardon me while I report the following story with a disrespectful amount of happiness: Circulation Plunges at Major Newspapers. An audit of 770 major newspapers has shown that circulation has dropped about three percent in the last six months, and much more than that in large coastal areas where more people are finding their news online.

While that's 3% less revenue for people who are much more talented and dedicated to their noble profession than I, it is also 3% fewer trees harvested, 3% fewer miles driven, 3% fewer loads taken, and 3% less pollution from paper mills. 

I sincerely hope that the newspaper industry manages to revolutionize itself without a dangerous crash. But they will absolutely be required to use less paper, and for that I am thankful.

Amazon.ca

Canada has a legal requirement for recycled content in books. So if you go to Amazon.ca, instead of Amazon.com, to buy books, frequently you automatically get a recycled book!

Nice! I get mine from play.com and suggested to them to publish whether its recycled or not in the book info along with the format. Shipping to Europe would be a bitch though from Canada :(

I wish companies took the lead on giving more informatve buyer info.

Libraries help.
written by rob, November 04, 2006
Most libraries in the UK stock popular papers and magazines. I always read Focus and New Scientist in the library, it helps the environment (a little bit) and saves me about £10 a month.
And of course, borrowing books from the library is the most eco friendly (and cheapest)option.

And Used Books
written by Hank, November 05, 2006
I try not to buy new books if I can manage it, that way, at least the buy tramadol online paper is seeing multiple use. Theoretically, a single book could be read by hundreds of people, and we all do the "can I borrow your copy of.." trick all the time.

The only problem with used books and borrowing is that the author doesn't get any money for their work, which is why I'm excited about electronic books...

Electronic books, no thanks. I like to keep my eyesight and yes the feel of paper is best. We can manage it by recycling and buy viagra with no prescription replanting. You can always give money to the best site prescription viagra the author if you buy a book second hand.

I wont be purchasing books in electronic format anytime soon, I have them now by download on p2p networks and they are horrible to read.

I'll breathe a sigh of relief when I see that concrete headstone go up for real. These charlatans who want to spread hatred and vindictive sentiments have had the megaphone in hand far too long. Finally, we have a source of cheap text which will supplant those "journalists" - the internet.
