How many Hail Gaias for an Apple Core?

Though I don’t fancy myself a Captain Planet type, it does bother me when people litter. Whether it’s a cigarette butt or the remains of a fast food meal being ceremoniously dumped out a moving vehicle, I can’t comprehend what compels people to do this. (Actually I do, for back when I was hitting the cancer sticks, I’d thoughtlessly do this and do it out of sheer laziness.)

I understand that there are some who would have such offenders pilloried and sent to Al Gore to say a few Hail Gaias.

While the man in the following story did not have to meet the movement’s High Priest, he was given the 3rd degree for allegedly dropping an apple core,
Man spends 18 hours in police cell and has his DNA taken for ‘dropping an apple core’

One can only wonder how different this goes down had Mr. Hirst dropped something that is not biodegradable?
