Frankly my dear, I don't want a dam
Free fuel, deliveries daily (re: solar energy)
Give a hoot, don't pollute--commute
Give peas a chance // Peas on Earth // Visualize Whirled Peas
Good planets R hard 2 find (earth pix caption)
If you're not recycling, you're throwing it all away
Live simply, that others may simply live
Loot, pollute and scoot
Love your mother (caption for picture of Earth)
Need, not greed
Pay your rent--work for the Earth
Recycle: because once is not enough!
Recycle or die
Say NOPE (Not On Planet Earth) to NIMBY

GUIDE TO ENVIRONMENTAL LEGISLATION (origin unknown):

NEPA (Ntl. Env. Policy Act): you must tell what you're going to do before
doing it...

OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health): you must tell how you're doing it...

TSCA (Toxic Substances Control): it's such bad stuff, you don't even make
it in the first place...

CAA (Clean Air): you don't put it up the stack...

CWA (Clean Water): you don't put it out the pipe...

SDWA (Safe Drinking Water): you don't put it in a hole in the ground...

CERCLA (Comprehensive Env. Responsability Compensation & Liability--
Superfund): if you did put it in the ground, dig it up...

RCRA (Resource Recovery & Conservation--solid & haz. waste law): you
don't put it anywhere else...

HMTA (Haz. Materials Transportation): you don't even carry it around...


Because there are trivial conflicts in these laws, Congress is now
considering combining them into a generalized overall toxic and chemical
