I didn't read through the entire thread, so forgive me if I am being redundant. An antifreeze fluid extractor that I am familiar with is also called a turkey baster.
After reading through the thread I agree with saving the environment and not polluting, but those who think Obama and Gore are leading the effort, think again. You lead by example and Gore sets no example to follow with behavior that points to his capital gain. Our leadership in Washinton have made no effort to cut back on their travel or drive compact cars, but feel it necessary to preach to us. In fact, most political figures pushing for wind, solar bio etc have investments in their chosen alternative energy and lobby for it. If they have been running submarines and aircraft carriers on nuclear power since the 60's without mishap, they can start building nuclear power plants in my neighborhood. Talk talk about misguided, how about the morons who have refused to develop nuclear as an alternative? Don't get me started on how the USA has been run and the idiots who are elected to office.
There is an antifreeze evacuation machine available at many shops, call before going. You can do a fair job yourself, the radiator is easy, but the block more difficult. If you must get it all, best to stop at a shop with a machine and get a clean and flush. The cost is around $100. All my old engine fluids are properly disposed of. It really is considered a small inconvenience once you have specified a container to store them until disposal. My antifreeze goes into recycled 5 gallon pails with an o-ring seal lid and taken to the county waste disposal. Most of us do our part, but it would be nice to see our leadership setting an example using less energy, driving smaller cars and turning the AC temp up. All I hear is alot of hot air coming out of DC!
