“The Earth is what we all have in common.”
– Wendell Berry
We are all celebrating the 50th World Earth Day this year. Each year it’s celebrated on the 22nd of April.
So why do we celebrate Earth Day every year??
It’s celebrated as an initiative and awareness of environmental issues and environmental protection.
So how did it all start????
It all started with an extensive oil spill in California in 1969, killing thousands of birds, fish, and sea mammals. Seeing this, an idea popped in the mind of Gaylord Nelson, the then U.S Senator. He announced a national day every year focusing on the environmental issues and working towards it.
So who is responsible for these environmental issues???
We are the most intelligent species on the planet, but we also have the credit of destroying our planet through our actions. Just a few examples are the Pollution and deforestation.
If we are the culprits, we also have the responsibility of solving the issue.
