Wishing you many more earthy birthdays. Happy EarthDay to you! Would you believe it, today is Earth-Day’s 45th event and 44th year?
It was April 22nd, 1970 when the very first Earth Day event was celebrated nationwide. A time when the norm was hippy-happy, flower-child culture, psychedelics, the passing of Jimi Hendrix, Simon & Garfunkel’s song “Bridge Over Troubled Water," college students streaking across campuses protesting the Vietnam war and top network TV programs "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In," "Gunsmoke," "Captain Kangaroo," "The Carol Burnett Show," and "I Dream of Jeannie."
“On April 22, more than one billion people around the globe will participate in Earth Day 2012 and help Mobilize the Earth.” ~~ EarthDay.org
Who would think Earth Day would also mark the modern environmentalist movement? It was April 22, 1970, the first Earth Day, that led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts.
#EarthDay 2014 will not focus on climate control but emphasis will be on "green cities, water and sustainability." Earth Day 2014 also marks the first #GlobalSelfie social media campaign.
