I'm looking for a few good slogans about climate change for my next tour...
Slogans should be short, smart, fit well into a rectangle, and look good in traffic. Winner gets a thousand dollars and, hopefully, launches the meme that saves the world. Second and third place is $500 and $250, and all three will have their words displayed up and down the west coast. Original work is preferred but not mandatory, and apart from the right to post them publicly, I will make no claim to any submissions as intellectual property. Send entries to freewayblogger - at - yahoo - dot - com. Deadline is March 15th.
