Greece-and-the-EU-Financial-CrisisGreece will never be “allowed” to exit the Eurozone, even if the Greeks vote for a zillion times “No”! Only a mindfully blind, naive or uninformed person cannot realize that the Greek Financial Crisis is as much an issue for Brussels as it is for Athens…

If, however Greece exits, the collateral damage will kill the Eurozone – despite to what certain EU officials exercising populism unconvincingly preach – and it will lead to far-reaching economic consequences across the continent. It would without any doubt undermine the European banking system within days and increase the public debt of other European countries.

Did you know?

that in a lifetime the average European or North American will discard more than 600 times his or her adult weight in garbage and about a ton of trash per person per year?

that Pytheas the ancient Greek explorer, mathematician, astronomer and navigator must have travelled to the American continent at the time of Alexander the Great?

that recycling 1 ton of paper saves 17 mature trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 2 barrels of oil, and 4000 kilowatt hours of electricity; this is enough energy to power the average North American home for 5 months?

that 1 recycled tin would save enough energy to power a television for 3 hours; 1 recycled glass bottle would save enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes; 1 recycled plastic bottle would save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for 3 hours?

that the Boeotian Hesiod about 3000 years ago theorized on the entrepreneurship typical of the market (an early laissez-faire), identifying the effects of government debasement of the coinage, which causes a decrease in its purchasing power (think Adam Smith, Keynes and post Keynes), arguing about the importance of competition and the importance of justice and the law in order to foster order and harmony in society?

that of all the restaurants that are opened, 90% of them fail in the first year and of the remaining ones that survive, 90% of those fail in the second year?

that Pytheas through its Soil Water + Life Solutions is probably the only entity world wide that can provide a-no-chimney-no-landfill-solution for the treatment of municipal solid and liquid waste?

that recycling steel saves 75% of the energy that would be used to create steel from raw materials, enough to power 18 million homes?

that every year, Americans buy more than 100 million cell phones, yet fewer than 20% of old cell phones are recycled and that recycling just a million cell phones reduces greenhouse gas emissions equal to removing 1,368 cars off the road for a full year?

that Pytheas has presence in 41 countries?
