Earth Day Celebrates 50 Years

April 22nd, 2020 | by: Steve Pollack | Posted in : Economy

Fifty years ago today, on the very first Earth Day, more than 20 million Americans took to the streets to protest the negative effects of industrialization on the planet we call home. Thus the modern environmental movement was born. On this Earth Day, we are thinking about the revolutionary spirit that moved those Americans to take action – and how that same spirit still informs the demands of our moment today.

In many ways, the situation we face today is even more perilous. Throughout our country we’re seeing dramatic climatic swings, resulting in record droughts and heat waves, record cold and snow, floods that have drowned city and countryside alike, and major hurricanes that have displaced whole communities. Do you part and make every day Earth Day.
