Wordless Wednesday – Earth Day 2020
Today is the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. Mau thought there was no better place to celebrate than the garden.
World Earth Day is a worldwide awareness celebrated every year on April 22. The reason to celebrate this event is to make people aware of our earth and environment. Though celebrated only one day each year, we should consider every day Earth Day and take measures to protect it.
The first Earth Day sparked the passage in the U.S. of the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts, and the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency. Under our current Administration, climate change is being denied and many of our environmental protections have been minimized or completely ignored.
But climate change is real. It is impacting our planet and our lives and it is time for action. The urgency has never been greater, and stakes never higher. We face mass extinction of species, catastrophic pollution of oceans, destruction of communities and displacement of millions.
Through 24 hours on Earth Day 2020, EARTHDAY.ORG will drive actions big and small giving diverse voices a platform to demand bold action for people and the planet.
In addition to celebrating Earth Day, Mau is joining the Wordless Wednesday blog hop at Comedy Plus.
