Happy Earth Day! It's been widely said that in 1970 over 20 million Americans celebrated that first Earth Day in some fashion or other. Many did simple things like plant something, and over a million showed up in Washington to celebrate. A real boon to environmental consciousness worldwide, that's impacted us to this day.
This week I celebrate Earth Day and The Environment. Hope you enjoy the quotes.
Everything is connected. Connectivity is going to be the key to addressing these issues, like contaminants and climate change. They're not just about contaminants on your plate. They're not just about the ice depleting. They're about the issue of humanity. What we do every day -- whether you live in Mexico, the United States, Russia, China ... can have a very negative impact on an entire way of life for an entire people far away from that source.

There would be very little point in my exhausting myself and other conservationist themselves in trying to protect animals and habitats if we weren't at the same time raising young people to be better stewards.
