Happy 40th Earth Day my fellow environmentalists! 

What does it mean to be an environmentalist?  What does it mean to be “green?”  Of course, there’s not a good answer to either question.  But today I hope that you take the opportunity to consider what it means to you.  

A few relevant facts & figures:

-Earth Day is celebrated each year on April 22nd.
-It is estimated that over 500 million people across the globe celebrate each year.  20 million celebrated the first year in 1970.
-There is an unofficial Earth Day flag and logo.

To do:

Sign a petition for comprehensive climate change.
