The Joy of Recycling (Aired on April 19 & 20, 2014)

Terry Laibach

Terry Laibach

Terry Laibach, an environmental specialist concerned largely with solid waste who works with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, discusses the economics and environmental impact of the 3Rs—Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. While the United States has 4 percent of the world’s population, it produces 25% of the world’s solid waste. At one time, the solution to this waste burden was to burn it, with poor consequences for the environment. Today about 80 percent of such waste can be eliminated, and in this program Ms. Laibach gives a number of tips on ways to do just that.

Dr. Felicia LeClere

Dr. Felicia LeClere, a Principal Research Scientist with the National Opinion Research Center (NORC), describes her work. NORC is a nonprofit research organization that collects data and does analysis of America’s attitudes toward social and health issues; it does not do political polling. The survey results are distributed to the parts of the federal government, such as Congress or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that need such information to make informed decisions and to better serve the public interest. Each question posed to the public gives people the opportunity to respond negatively or positively. The intention is to improve public policy in fields such as health, education, economics, crime, justice, energy, security, and the environment.
