Earth Day Back Then
Earth Day was born out of the modern environmental movement of 1970, when war was raging in Vietnam and many were opposed to it. According to earthday.org, the idea for a national day to focus on the environment came to Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson, then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, after witnessing the ravages of the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. Inspired by the student anti-war movement, he realized that if he could infuse that energy with an emerging public consciousness about air and water pollution, it would force environmental protection onto the national political agenda. Senator Nelson announced the idea for a “national teach-in on the environment” to the national media; persuaded Pete McCloskey, a conservation-minded Republican Congressman, to serve as his co-chair; and recruited Denis Hayes from Harvard as national coordinator. Hayes built a national staff of 85 to promote events across the land. April 22, falling between Spring Break and Final Exams, was selected as the date.”
Earth Day Today
Today the focus has turned toward global warming and a push for clean energy. This green holiday is celebrated around the world by more than 1 billion people. It is a day of action, policy changes and that one alters the human behavior by bringing together opposing political parties, the old and the young and everyone in between— all fighting peacefully for one common good. A good that each of us shares, beautiful Mother Earth.
Join the movement.
