09 Jun Reflections on Earth Day During the Coronavirus Pandemic
Happy Earth Day! Today is the 50th anniversary of the annual celebration dedicated to saving our planet. Back in 1969, Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson, inspired by Rachel Carson’s seminal environmental book Silent Spring, and concerned about environmental degradation, started a teach-in on college campuses about environmentalism. This eventually evolved into the first Earth Day in 1970.
