Earth Day 2012

This is the third of a series about sustainability.

The first Earth Day was inspired by the student anti-war movement of the late 60’s. It infused that energy with an emerging public consciousness about air and water pollution, and forced environmental protection onto the national political agenda.

Earth Day 2012 2 Earth Day achieved a rare political alignment, enlisting support from Republicans and Democrats, rich and poor, city folks and farmers, business tycoons and labor leaders. It led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts.
