"Zabaleen" is the Arabic term for those visionary and enterprising people whose culture revolves around recycling. The Zabaleen are experts at "transforming one man's garbage into another man's gold" and aspire toward a net zero-waste economy. Applied and supported this could lead to true energy independence, not only by radically reducing our demand for "raw materials" and hard to extract natural resources but by recycling other less obvious phenomena and materials that are now wasted.

Shame on Sarkozy
Shame on you Sarkozy. Remind your fashion model wife that the word "Bikini" comes from a sick advertising campaign based on the fact that after the H-bomb tests on the Bikini atoll there was >nothing left of the islands, and since with this bathing suit there is practically nothing left we should name it after the isla...nds we destroyed<. And what will you leave us with, France, if you have your way... radiant smiles on radioactive skulls?
