Earth Day

Spotlight: Today is Earth Day, a day when some 140 nations celebrate the environment. Activities include street fairs, television programs, lectures, and exhibits focusing on issues like global warming, deforestation, and pollution of our soil, water and air. Though the original Earth Day was proposed for March 21 — the date of the vernal equinox — on April 22, 1970, US Senator Gaylord Nelson sponsored a nationwide event that evolved into the current annual international celebration. This year's theme, The Green Generation, will mark the start of a two-year campaign to encourage people to use alternate energy sources, develop new technologies and teach effective ways of preserving the planet.
