The Meaning of Earth Day 2021
It’s time for the people of the world to “take your climate action to the next level.” According to earth.org, “The scientific evidence is clear and irrefutable – human activity is causing our planet to heat up at an alarming rate. International scientists have warned that we have just over a decade to halve our emissions, to avoid the most devastating effects of climate change on food supply, national security, global health, extreme weather and more. ”
In 1990, Earth Day became an “ecological movement, working with more than 75,000 partners in over 192 countries to lead positive actions for our planet.”
