Earth Day

"EARTH DAY uses one of humanity’s great discoveries, the discovery of anniversaries by which, throughout time, human beings have kept their sorrows and their joys, their victories, their revelations and their obligations alive, for re-celebration and re-dedication another year, another decade, another century, another eon. EARTH DAY reminds the people of the world of the need for continuing care which is vital to Earth’s safety. …EARTH DAY draws on astronomical phenomena in a new way; using the vernal equinox, the time when the Sun crosses the equator making night and day of equal length in all parts of theEarth. To this point in the annual calendar, EARTH DAY attaches no local or divisive set of symbols, no statement of the truth or superiority of one way of life over another. But the selection of the March equinox makes planetary observance of a shared event possible. The vernal equinox calls on all mankind to recognize and respect Earth’s beautiful systems of balance, between the presence of animals on land, the fish in the sea, birds in the air, mankind, water, air, and land. Most importantly there must always be awareness of the actions by people that can disturb this precious balance." - Margaret Mead

The Epic Adventure of Earth Comes to the Big Screen.

"WASHINGTON— President Bill Clinton marked Earth Day in 1994 by promising to "green" the White House from its landscaping to its copy machines. But President Barack Obama and his supporters pledged themselves to a far more ambitious goal on Tuesday—combating climate change all over the world." By Jim Tankersley Washington Bureau April 22, 2009

"Earth Day, celebrated in the US on April 22, is a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's environment. It was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in in 1970 and is celebrated in many countries every year." - Wikipedia

"Call the Capitol switchboard at 202 224-3121 and tell your member of Congress to support the Markey climate bill

Earth Day Network believes the Markey-Waxman climate bill is a reasonable measure that moves the US toward a green energy future and new economy based on renewable energy that will go along way toward pollution reduction requirements for climate change.

The bill has strong clean energy standards that will transform the economy and encompass the latest in climate science.
The bill could be strengthened in the areas of 100 percent emissions auctions and in offsets and could use stronger enforcement mechanisms. We look forward to working with Chairmen Markey and Waxman on such strengthening measures.

We applaud Chairmen Waxman and Markey for their longstanding leadership on global warming and for their hard work on the legislation. Please call your member of Congress through the Capitol switchboard at 202 224-3121 and ask them to support the Markey Waxman climate bill and to strengthen it." - Earth Day Network
