Second Annual Slogan Contest

 I just bought a couple hundred large posters of the earth from space that I'll be putting up on overpasses for the next couple of months. It'll be like all those flags that went up after 9/11, only going up during the tragedy instead of after.

 Some I'll post with messages,  others will go up alone. In the meantime I'll be looking for slogans and messages that go well with pictures of Planet Earth over freeways. Send me your ideas and if I like them, I'll use them. The three best ones will win cash prizes of $1,000, $500 and $250 and have their words read by literally hundreds of thousands of people.
  Your message can be anything you like, but the issue I'm most concerned with is global warming, particularly what is happening in the Arctic. Messages should be short, smart, fit well into a rectangle and look good over traffic.
 They can be meant to go either with the earth posters or without, so long as they make people think. 

 Original ideas are preferred but not required and, apart from the right to post them publicly, I make no claim to any entries as intellectual property.
 Send entries to freewayblogger - at - yahoo- dot - com. Deadline is March 15th.
For more examples go to Freewayblogger.com

Stuck in traffic?
Time to think.

Where are you going?
Why?

A car is a century pound mile device.

That is one pound put into the AIR.

I have seen this calculated often.. others are more precise:

A gallon of gas weighs 6.1 lbs.
lets say an average/typical car gets 18 mpg -
so 3 miles burns a pound of gas (18/6)

But carbon is mixed with oxygen for combustion...

CO2 is one part carbon to 2 parts oxygen... roughly 3 parts total
or 3 miles puts out 3 pounds of exhaust. 3/3 = 1

And that is A LOT
CO2 lasting for 100 years..

Interesting post there sicjedi... I was going to say something snarky about your having moved on from 9/11 truthiness, but then I clicked your "Crucial Info" link...

A lot of people tend to scorn folks like you, but I think the world is a far funnier and whackier place with you in it. Carry On!

Gotta love the Freeway blogger.

Series of 3 signs:

1) Let's play Jeopardy !
2) Drowning polar bears
3) With the ice melted, what's the only white stuff left in the Arctic?

infanttyrone said...

Series of signs:

1) What was Roy Orbison's song
2) Lamenting the melting of Arctic ice
3) Due to anthropogenic global warming ?
4) Blue By You
