Day 33: Earth Day

Senator Gaylord Nelson and Earth Day: “The first Earth Day took place on April 22, 1970, and was a monumental success, involving an estimated 20 million Americans. In a speech that day, Nelson declared, “Our goal is an environment of decency, quality, and mutual respect for all other human creatures and for all living creatures. The battle to restore a proper relationship between man and his environment, between man and other living creatures will require a long, sustained, political, moral, ethical, and financial commitment — far beyond any effort made before.” (Source)
