Today is Earth Day! A day for all of us to commit ourselves to reducing our carbon footprint, to become responsible for our daily carbon consumption. A day to help our children's children. A day to help our world-wide family.
Earth Day had its official beginning in 1970 when Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson asked Congress to declare April 22 as Earth Day in the U.S. The first Earth Day focused on zero population growth. This year's theme is "The Green Generation." Pledge yourself to do something, however small, to help our environment. Start by looking at your carbon footprint and take measures to reduce yours. It takes all of us to make a difference.
