Peter did very few political drawings, but he did design the T-shirt to the right to publicize problems with WIPP. WIPP stands for the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant. Situated near Carlsbad, New Mexico, it is the nation's first and only deep underground repository for the disposal of a certain kind of radioactive weapons waste–mostly plutonium contaminated waste.
It's called a pilot plant because it was supposed to demonstrate that safe, deep underground disposal of this waste was possible. Unfortunately, last Valentine's Day WIPP had a radioactive release and at least 21 workers were internally contaminated. Radioactive contamination travelled off-site and despite assurances to the contrary, the site is still releasing a higher than normal level of radioactivity into the air.
Peter's design is more perfect now than it was when he designed it about 15 years ago because now, many people really have forgotten about WIPP. It takes something like this release to bring it all back.
For a limited time we have these T-shirts for sale in white or sand (a darker tan) in men's sizes S-XXL, and in white or blue in women's sizes S-XL. Like all our shirts, they are $20 plus shipping and handling (and tax if you live in New Mexico). First check T-shirt availability and then request a Paypal invoice if you would like to use a credit card. Or you can print and fill out the Order Form and pay by check. Tell us that you want the WIPP T-shirt and let us know what men's or women's size you'd like, what color t-shirt, and include your address and zip code. All profits from sales of the T-shirt will go to groups fighting to protect the environment in New Mexico.
