Earth Day - 2010

Earth Day - 2010: 40th Earth Day

Earth Day 2010 will start with ‘The World People’s Conference’ on Climate Change, to be held in Cochabamba, Bolivia, and with the International Year of Biodiversity. It is our responsibility that we have to do some constructive work on the Earth Day 2010 to our planet. We have to grow more and more trees to make green Earth which are the only sources to save us and our future.

We are facing some problems like climate change, big earthquakes and recently seen the Iceland volcano activity. We never forget that the nature is the super power and we all are helpless and nothing against it.

Earth Day has been formally observed in April since 1970. U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson had founded Earth Day on 22nd April, 1970. For the Earth’s environment, Earth day is designed to inspire alertness and admiration. Earth day is observed in 175 countries in every year. The passage of the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and the Endangered Species Act are connected with the Earth Day. The Earth week is celebrated between 16th April and 22nd April.

Some people celebrate Earth Day on the 1st day of spring i.e. on the vernal equinox, around 21st March, while some celebrate on 22nd April, but the purpose of the day is to inspire admiration for the earth’s environment and alertness of matters that intimidate it. There are many quotes and slogans related with the Earth Day. One of the best is “Every day is Earth Day”.
