Earthday, Earth Day, Day of Earth

Earth Day was put into place to create awareness and appreciation for planet earth.

In September 1969, a conference took place in Seattle, Washington where U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin announced that in spring 1970 there would be a nationwide grassroots demonstration on the environment.

Nelson viewed the stabilization of the nation's population as an important aspect of environmentalism and later said:

"The bigger the population gets, the more serious the problems become ... We have to address the population issue. The United Kingdom, with the U.S. supporting it, took the position in Cairo in 1994 that every country was responsible for stabilizing its own population. It can be done. But in this country, it's phony to say 'I'm for the environment but not for limiting immigration.'"
Senator Nelson first proposed the nationwide environmental protest to thrust the environment onto the national agenda.” "It was a gamble," he recalls, "but it worked."

Let's take this day to celebrate our Mother Earth, and remember that we have been provided a wonderful place to grow, learn, and promote conservation.

Mother Earth is something that cannot be replaced once it is all used up. We are doing a great job of abusing her and not giving anything in return. We were made her caretakers and we better start doing a better job if we want a planet for our children's children to enjoy. Thanks for the post and the reminder to do what we can to make this place a better place to live. Let's all do our part!

Friends 4 Life!
