History of Earth Day:
Back in 1969, it was a time when people started to get really upset because everything was getting polluted like the air, water and you remember DDT they were using it then. And those Eagle eggs were getting screwed up and the book “Silent Spring” was written. And then in 1969, we had the worst oil spill on American soil in the history of oil spills at the time. So everybody was like “Man we gotta do something”. Big business is messing up the environment and we the people don’t really want anything to do with it.
And then there popped out this one guy Senator Nelson and he said “You know what we got to do something”, I’ve been trying for a long time to get the politicians in Washington to listen. But they need to hear from the people, they need to know that people want environmental protection. And so he said let’s take a lesson from the Vietnam War activists they’re doing all these teachings where they sit down and talk about the issues that are happening about the war but let’s do it about the environment let’s do it on April 22nd, 1970.
And that day started to be called Earth Day. And it was a huge success, he started to organize the event and he didn’t have to do that much because at a grassroots level people started to organize it all over the country. It was a huge success because 20 million Americans celebrated Earth Day that year and the politicians listened. You see no matter if you were a democrat or republican everybody agreed the environment is important just like if you go out into your backyard you don’t want to pick junk back there.
That year it created the Environmental Protection Agency and it also laid the groundwork for lots of other things like that Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Protection Act which are all good things. So Earth Day has changed just a little bit but it’s still a day to learn about environmental issues. It’s my day it’s your day it’s our day to say hey we care about the environment so much that we want to learn more about the issues that are happening right now so that we can make wise choices and that’s what Earth Day is all about.
And so we have an Earth Day challenge for you, you go outside by yourself for 15 minutes and just observe. Alright, it’s simple, but it’s a good one, that’s it. Happy Earth Day so enjoy Earth Day maybe make every day your Earth Day. Below are the Earth day quotes to make your day beautiful
