Today, Earth Day is known as one of the most significant secular observances in the world. It is celebrated by more than a billion people every year as a day of action to change human behavior and to create global, national, and local policy changes. As education and awareness of climate change grow, so does civil mobilization. Instead of taking to the streets, like in 1970, today’s movement exists on a digital platform.
The Earth is our only home, and it’s the only place in the Universe known to harbor life. Amazing, right? So, let’s protect our home and keep it clean. Once a year, we celebrate our Earth. The rest of the year, we treat it like dirt. We try to attain infinite growth on a finite planet. We are breaking what cannot be fixed.
