Earth Day Recycling

In honor of Earth Day, here’s a nice job of bumper sticker recycling from Tea Party Artwork:


Speaking of Earth Day, we all knew when Barack Obama was elected that the environment was a primary concern of his supporters –so much so that his inauguration in 2009 closely resembled the first Earth Day in 1970 (h/t C5s Simian Roadhouse):


Fitting tributes to environmental stewardship.

Here’s a passing thought on Earth Day. The United Nations is debating “human rights” for Mother Nature. If that’s ever the case, will trees be able to sue treehuggers for unwanted and inappropriate touching? If so I plan to get a government grant to conduct “good touch, bad touch” seminars for sequoias as well as a law degree so I can represent the Amazon rainforest when it files for a restraining order against James Cameron and his abusive carbon footprint.

Update: Earth Day-worthy information:

President Obama declared today’s 41st annual Earth Day proof of America’s ecological and conservation spirit—then completed a three-day campaign-style trip logging 10,666 miles on Air Force One, eating up some 53,300 gallons at a cost of about $180,000. And that doesn’t include the fuel consumption of his helicopter, limo, or the 29 other vehicles that travel with that car.

Update II: A co-founder of Earth Day is celebrating today by maintaining the greenest, most carbon neutral prison cell ever.

Update III: An Earth Day classic featuring George Carlin.
