FROM PDX RETRO ~

earth_day1


Each year, Earth Day — April 22 — marks the anniversary of what many
consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. It
capitalized on the emerging consciousness, channeling the energy of
the anti-war protest movement and putting environmental concerns
front and center.
The idea came to Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson,
then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin.
