Radical environmentalists hold their noses over modern innovations like pesticides and plastics.  But flush toilets?  Well believe it or not, some Green leaders are warning of an “environmental disaster” if poor people in developing nations ever aspire to the flush toilets so common in the industrialized world.  According to CNSNews, a conference will soon be held in Finland to promote waterless, dry toilets which proponents claim are needed to avert a global water crisis. But many experts say the flush toilet is one of the greatest public health advances of the modern era, that its water use is relatively minimal, and that this campaign is merely a quote “celebration of primitivism.”  Sounds like this Green effort needs some bathroom spray.
