    Tons of shredded and compressed banknotes are stacked up at the Foundation to Help Autism in Miskolc, eastern Hungary in this February 7, 2012 file photograph. Globally, as world population doubled between 1950 and 1996, there was a more than sixfold increase in paper consumption, from 46 million tons to 300 million tons. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development projected paper production would rise by 77 percent from 1995 to 2020 worldwide, and by 170 percent in developing countries.

    This photo made available by Andy Beverly shows his son Guillaume Beverly, 15-years-old in Conflans Sainte Honorine, France in May 2012. Some French parents resort to sending their children abroad to get adequate treatment. In most developed countries, children with autism are usually sent to school where they get special education classes. But in France, they are more often sent to a psychiatrist where they get talk therapy meant for people with psychological or emotional problems. When Andy Beverly's son Guillaume was diagnosed as autistic at age 2, Guillaume began to receive treatment from psychiatrists in Paris. After years of sporadic schooling in France, Beverly sent Guillaume to a school in Belgium that focuses on techniques to help him interact with others and do simple things like putting on his coat. He is convinced that Guillaume, now 15, would be more advanced if he'd gotten better treatment as a child. (AP Photo/Andy Beverly/Family HO)

    Stuart Chaifetz kisses his son Akian Chaifetz, 10, on the head as they play in the backyard of their home in Cherry Hill, N.J., Wednesday, April 25, 2012. After Chaifetz was told that his son Akian was acting violently at his New Jersey school he decided to investigate. Akian's autism prevented him from being able to explain to his father if anything had been happening to him at school. Chaifetz decided the only way to find out what was behind the outbursts was to send his boy to school wearing a hidden audio recorder. While Akian's teacher and colleagues denied anything out of the ordinary was happening, the recordings Chaifetz listened to told a different story. (AP Photo/Mel Evans)
