Earth Day’s Fine, but What About Earth Tomorrow?May 2, 2014
If April is considered Earth Month and April 22nd is hailed as Earth Day, I want May — and, for that matter, the rest of the year — to be about Earth Tomorrow.
For me, Earth Day has never been so much an enviro-love fest as a time to take stock of where we’re headed.
I do not begrudge those that want to celebrate the uniqueness of our biosphere — when you stop and think about it, this place is nothing short of astounding; demonstrably unique in the universe. And I laud all those pioneering lawyers, engineers and others that began the modern environmental movement and started the fight a generation ago when America had air once as bad as China’s now; when the Great Lakes were on life support, and when 12 lane highways through neighborhoods was considered progress.
