This year marks the 51st anniversary of Earth Day!
According to EarthDay.org, Americans were consuming vast amounts of leaded gas through massive automobile usage. Industry belched out smoke and sludge with little fear of the consequences from either the law or bad press. Air pollution was commonly accepted as the smell of prosperity. At that time, most of America remained largely oblivious to environmental concerns and how a polluted environment threatens human health.
US Senator Gaylord Nelson, a junior senator from Wisconsin, who had long been concerned with the deteriorating environment of the USA as well as an oil spill off the coast of Santa Barbara, California, declared the very first Earth Day celebration on April 22, 1970.
By 1990, Earth Day had become global. Today, Earth Day is widely recognized by more than a billion people every year as a day of action to change human behaviour and create global, national, and local policy changes.
