Earth Day should be a day of joy and celebration that life on this bountiful planet is better than anytime in human history.
Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on April 22, on which day events worldwide are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year.
Here are the factual realities we should be celebrating on Earth Day:
Natural resources are more abundant and affordable today than ever before in history
Energy — the master resource — is super-abundant
Our air and water are cleaner
There is no Malthusian nightmare of overpopulation
(meaning the theory that population tends to increase at a faster rate than its means of subsistence)
Global per capita food production is 40 percent higher today than as recently as 1950
The rate of death and physical destruction from natural disasters or severe weather changes has plummeted over the last 50 to 100 years

Bottom line is, no matter how many trips are made to outer space, we live here on Earth. Always have, always will. So it is up to us, each and everyone, to take care of it.
That can be a daunting task if you look at the whole picture, see how wide spread the grass grows, but if you clean up your own mess, help the elderly and disabled, bend over and pick up / throw away trash instead of stepping over it… those are the little things that add up.
In schools across Canada, Teachers, Parents and Children of all ages show that they care about climate change by choosing active and sustainable transportation and by participating in the national Earth Flag campaign.
