Earth Day turns 50! We can thank Senator Gaylord Nelson who created this day on April 22, 1970. A real pioneer in the environmental movement, he worked to help keep our planet clean by bringing about regulatory laws that were non-existent at the time. Today, 193 countries have joined in on the action to embrace Earth Day.
The objective was to get a nationwide demonstration of concern for the environment so large that it would shake the political establishment out of its lethargy.
-- Senator Gaylord Nelson (1916 - 2005) WWII Hero. State Senator. Governor. US Senator. Environmentalist.
