Editor's Note:

This Q & A feature of The Planet is a combination of how-to tips and activist experiences. Sometimes we'll consult an expert in the field; other times we'll solicit expert advice from our readers.

If you had five seconds with President Bush, what would you say?

"If I had five seconds with George Bush, I'd ask him to fire Gale Norton. If I had five more seconds, I'd ask him to make the Land and Water Conservation Fund a vibrant, well-funded, proactive program that acquires land around the country and permanently preserves it."

- Christine, Chicago, Ill.

"Keep our remaining wild forests wild! No more logging on public lands."

- Jenny, Mountain View, Calif.

"Please put solar panels and a windmill on the White House."

- Nick, Reston, Va.

"Support smart growth legislation. It's our future."

- Joseph, Ann Arbor, Mich.

"Ignore Dick Cheney."

- Lenny , Brightwood, Ore.

"President Bush, please respect our wild places, do not drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge."

- Jim, Waterbury, Vt.
