Good afternoon, Netizens...

 

Here we have the Unofficial Earth Day flag, by John McConnell: the blue marble on a blue background. It has come to represent Earth Day, which has been observed since April 22, 1970 and is now observed on April 22 each year by more than 500 million people and several national governments in 175 countries. It is coordinated by the nonprofit Earth Day Network, according to whom Earth Day is now "the largest secular holiday in the world, celebrated by more than a half billion people every year”.

 

I have a problem with Earth Day. If so many people in the United States are so enamored of saving Mother Earth, why is it they continue to re-elect politicians who clearly have a conflict of interest with Green awareness and/or become lobbyists for major corporations that pollute our air and water?

 

I find myself astounded beyond words at the number of lobbyists for corporations who mouth the phrases of Earth Day while still polluting madly away.
