Only catch: It’s gotta be in a limerick like this one:

Two thousand twelve, oh what a mess
Dirty ads, gridlock, but I digress
When it comes to green
Little progress was seen
Who’s the turkey to blame for this mess?

Need a refresher on the rules of limerick writing.  Try here.

Remember an iPad is on the line and all you have to do to have a chance to win it is nominate your candidate for environmental turkey of 2012 in a limerick.

You have until midnight on Monday the 26th. Enter contest here.

    A limerick for shale gas:

    A shale rock, limited by diffusion
    Sold as productive, without any confusion
    By fracking it splits
    And groundwater it spritz
    As a bridge, we’re just left in dilution

    Sorry, kind of transport and fate-y
