Fifty Years Since the First Earth Day… And we haven’t even started to do enough. I can’t believe, having participated in one way or another in this Celebration for most of those years, that more progress hasn’t been made. The effort to raise Awareness of this Planet’s plight has been going on for more than a half century, and while more people are indeed Aware, the situation remains much as always. Certainly, many more people are actively trying to make changes. their have been accords and agreements, the Talking Heads have debated the issue at length. Legislation has been passed to protect the environment, and then summarily overturned when it suited the current “Powers that Be”. Shame on us All!
