Most people assume that I share the same opinion about Earth Day. When asked about it recently, I had a hard time immediately explaining why I have some affinity for Earth Day and not for other events put on by world-class organizations like the World Wildlife Fund and 350.org.

The first Earth Day was held on April 22nd , 1970, the same year I was born-yes if you are counting that means I will be 41 this year, just like Earth Day. That means that for more than 40 years, activists, students, concerned citizens and politicians have used Earth Day as an opportunity to discuss environmental issues around the globe. Earth Day has become an institution focused on protecting Mother Earth.
