holy moley, captain planet - it's earth day today, and I flushed the toilet one too many times - damn my uncaring attitude towards the environment!
TODAY IS INDEED EARTH DAY! Join a massive effort to protect wilderness areas from oil drilling in honor of Earth Day. The Earth Day Virtual March is spreading across the country - they say to make sure your town or city is represented! (Again, I am sure that polar bears will feel all fuzzy when they get wind of GenericSmallTown USA that was represented by one or two nature nuts (this said with affection!) who are even aware of their plight up there, as the icebergs melt away...).
On the first Earth Day, 20 million Americans called for a cleaner, healthier environment. (Were they truly heeded...?). Their activism helped secure the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. (Is it really secure...?). Now, 35 years later, with the Senate's recent vote to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, that activism is needed to counter a growing threat to all hard-won environmental protections. (Absolutely... although it is a shock to the system to realize that Earth Day and I are basically of the same age! What were people doing before that...?!? Sheesh... And I thought the sixties enlightened!).
