Earth Day: The History of A Movement

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Wondering what happened to the passion of the 1970’s…

Critters and Crayons posted about local events honoring Earth Day but… definitely not the same consciousness of the 70’s. At least the support of the community kayak races were one way of celebrating the natural resources we sometimes take for granted.

    I really enjoyed the 1970s video. My, how things have changed. Thank you for sharing.

    The passion of the Earth Day enthusiasts has diluted due to us baby-boomers getting older and either getting drowned out by louder “Look at How Green I Am” corporate marketing or getting frustrated by politician rhetoric on possible solutions.

    I’ve never been a bonafide tree-hugger, but I usually celebrated Earth Day within my family, community organization (Girl Scouts/church group), and/or with the city. Now, this older but wiser citizen tries to celebrate it more often than once a year in a quieter manner.
