Abstract: 
"Our project Refuse, Refuse, doesn't sit all that comfortably with...ideas...that insist that the mechanisms that created global warming and other ecological disasters are the ones to solve them. We think that our engineering practices have brought us to our current environmental and cultural situation and that there is no better way to deal with the constant stream of waste running out of our factories than to stop, to refuse refuse. We are both attracted and repelled to the idea of creating a solution out of the problem. Being able to create a new home out of recycled materials, or to inject the atmosphere with tiny reflectors to redirect heat away from the planet are both beautiful and Sisyphean. In this book, you will find experiments with trash in Chicago and Aberdeen." (abstract is taken from the first page of the zine.)
