Sunday April 22nd… Dear Diary. The main purpose of this ongoing post will be to track United States extreme or record temperatures related to climate change. Any reports I see of ETs will be listed below the main topic of the day. I’ll refer to extreme or record temperatures as ETs (not extraterrestrials)😊. Here is today’s main climate change related topic:
Earth Day to Earth Century
It appears that Earth Day is being more widely celebrated with each passing year, which is fantastic. More publicity can lead to education and awareness of a fragile environment, which eventually will result, as hoped, in a harmonic balance between nature and human development. Yet, Earth Day is recognized on only one day of the year like a specific type of weather, only here for a short time. Since climate change is now the predominant environmental problem, I saw an idea, which might aid to focus on the concern. Let’s make the 21st century Earth Century as suggested by Eric Holthas:
#EarthDay2018 weekend! Check out this website put together by @NASA about our amazing planet: https://www.nasa.gov/content/goddard/earth-day-2018 …
We all can make a difference. Every day.
Here is a note that I received from Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project:
A single photo of our home from space inspired the very first Earth Day in 1970, and helped shape our modern movement to save the planet from climate change.
And as the reality of the climate crisis becomes more apparent and urgent by the day, activists like you know that every day should be Earth Day. The facts are clear that our climate is changing and that we need to take action to save our planet before it’s too late.
On this Earth Day and in the early part of this Earth Century here is a big thank you to all trying to make a difference:
