‘Puff the Toxic Dragon’ — (Stericycle Emergency Bypass Stack) — Environmental Music Video

(EnviroNews DC News Bureau) — North Salt Lake City, Utah — This entertaining segment showcasing a parody and fun-filled environmental music video, aires from our full-feature documentary on a medical waste incineration crisis in North Salt Lake City, Utah.

The film, titled Medical Waste Madness — ‘The Devil’s Work’ — Stericycle Plant Whistleblower Tells All, can be viewed here on the EnviroNews DC network: http://environews.tv/medical-waste-madness-the-devils-work-stericycle-plant-whistleblower-tells-all-documentary/



The Smog Lake City Singers are a music parody group focusing on environmentally educational songs of inspiration and motivation. They can be seen in numerous musical acts on local EnviroNews Utah here: http://environews.tv/music-and-levity-make-air-pollution-conundrum-easier-to-handle/

The transcript and song lyrics to this section of the documentary are as follows:

Bombing an airshed with dioxin, furan, mercury, lead, deadly biologicals, radioactive isotopes and even invariably fatal and highly resilient mad-cow causing prions is only where it begins when you’re talking about Stericycle’s events, and these episodes are at times so horrendous that Emerson Urry, in an article on Sep. 7, 2013, equated Stericycle’s ominous bypass valve to the mouth of a fire-breathing dragon:

“The short bypass stack seems to act like the mouth of a deadly dragon these days, looming as citizens wait in fear and concern, wondering when the poisonous fire-breathing beast will spew its deadly flame down from its ominous lair onto the poor and unsuspecting townsfolk again.”

We recently came up with a new name for Stericycle’s blow-off valve at EnviroNews – “Puff the Toxic Dragon.” When we asked the evermore popular local singing group the Smog Lake City Singers what they thought of the concept here’s what they had to say:

Puff the Toxic Dragon

Lives next to me

And belches in the morning mist never saying excuse me.

Utah Legislators

Love that rascal Puff

And brought him tax incentives and some other fancy stuff.

Little Foxy-boro

Where moms and dads could see

Their children choke in poison smoke all full of mercury.

Heartlessly ignoring what clean air law allows,

Those bastards make us madder than prion infected cows.

Puff the Toxic Dragon

Lives next to me

And belches in the morning mist never saying “excuse me.”

Puff the Toxic Dragon

Lives next to me

Spewing tons of nasty gas above Salt Lake City.

They finally asked a scientist

Who said “I’m sorry pal,

Your house has more dioxin than a place on Love Canal.”

Everybody knows that you shouldn’t burn this stuff,

but money’s all that matters to that nasty rascal Puff.

Oh, Puff the Toxic Dragon

Lives next to me

And belches in the morning mist never saying “excuse me.”

Puff the Toxic Dragon

Lives next to me

Spewing tons of nasty gas above Salt Lake City.

They shouted to the state house, “Oh please just shut it down!”

And, they said “No, but how’s about we move it out of town?”

“They sent him to Tooele.” But Puff said “Never fear.

I’ll make my poison over there; the wind will blow it here.”

Oh, Puff the Toxic Dragon

Lives next to me

And belches in the morning mist never saying “excuse me.”

Puff the Toxic Dragon

Lives next to me

Spewing tons of nasty gas above Salt Lake City.

Spewing tons of nasty gas above Salt Lake City.
