Foxxinnia: I wasn't around in the 70s so I have no first-hand knowledge of the subject, but my understanding is that this country use to be farking filthy back in the day. Like trash everywhere. Can someone from that time compare and contrast this for me?

Your understanding is quite accurate.  The sides of most highways were lined a couple of feet deep with junk that people had thrown out of their cars- and not just cigarette butts and coke cans, but old mattresses, broken washing machines, etc.  When I was a kid, we regularly had school cancellations due do air quality problems.  I posted a picture up thread of the Cuyahoga river on fire, and that wasn't the only one.  It was so bad that we had to hire an Italian guy to pretend to be an Indian in a TV commercial, because we couldn't find any actual Indians in all the smog.
