Celebrating Earth Day in Fine ART Photography

Jimmy Carter – It is good to realize that if love and peace can prevail on earth, and if we can teach our children to honor nature’s gifts, the joys and beauties of the outdoors will be here forever.”

Sunday, April 22nd marks the 42nd anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement, Earth Day.

According to Earth Day Network, idea for Earth Day came from Gaylord Nelson, then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, after witnessing the ravages of the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. Inspired by the student anti-war movement, he realized that if he could infuse that energy with an emerging public consciousness about air and water pollution, it would force environmental protection onto the national political agenda.  20 million Americans participated in the first Earth Day events in 1970.
