Celebrating the Earth

Our world is full of life, but it is in trouble due to the destruction we are largely creating. Do you believe climate change is real? I certainly do, simply from witnessing opposing seasons interlocking at some point with each other and on the other side of the world, glaciers are melting in temperatures way below zero.

Earth Day is on April 22 and is the world’s largest environmental movement. Since the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, more than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, with a focus on education, public policy, and consumer campaigns.

This year’s campaign is “Environmental & Climate Literacy.” Learn more about how you can get involved and take action to eliminate pollution, planting trees and tending gardens, curbing greenhouse emissions or to help power the movement. Visit the Earth Day Network.

Are we taking action to repair the damage we’ve done to the earth, or taking precautionary measures to prevent further manmade disasters and destruction to our planet? Today, we commemorate Earth DayEarth Day Network’s year-round mission is to broaden, diversify and activate the environmental movement worldwide, through a combination of education, public policy, and consumer campaigns. Earth Day Network is committed to promoting sustainability and environmental conservation 365 days of the year, not just on Earth Day.

Economic growth and sustainability lies within our power and how we respond to our caretaking responsibility is a choice we have, which could be a matter of life and death. Let’s take better care of our planet, because if we don’t, our planet certainly won’t protect us. What are you doing to get involved on Earth Day and what type of ecological footprint are you leaving?
