What could go wrong?

From the Canadian Medical Association Journal another one of those areas like the ridiculous attempts to green the military, where I think most people don’t give a rats patootie about whether they are getting “green care” or not. In the case of the military, we want an effective offense, one that effectively neutralizes or kills the enemy. In the case of surgical procedures, we want an effective offense, one that effectively neutralizes or kills the disease. I don’t need nor care for a twisty bulb, or green bio jet fuel, green packaging, or whatever it might be in either situation. I want want is most effective. They are concerned about medical waste, that’s fine, as we’ve seen with much of the green revolution, haste makes waste, so I hope hospitals don’t try to put political correctness before effectiveness.
Greening operating rooms benefit the bottom line and the environment
