22 April World Earth Day

On 22 April World Earth Day is marked on every year. This annual event celebrated worldwide to express the importance of the support for the environment protection.

History of the Earth Day- the Idea

The history of the earth day started in the era of 1970s. In 1969 after observing the massive oil spill in California, Santa Barbara, Gaylord Nelson was inspired to unite or organize a national “teach-in”   means that focused on educating the common people about environment. Nelson got the idea for a national day that focused on the protection of the environment.

Denis Hayes graduated from the Stanford University and a politically dynamic personality, Nelson recruited him as a national coordinator and for the post of chairman Nelson persuaded Pete McCloskey who is U.S. Rep. of California. They have 85 staffs, they were in the position to rally. Alost 20 million people support this rally across the United States on 22 April 1970. People took the streets, auditoriums, and parks to demonstrate for the healthy and pure environment. Thousands of universities and Colleges held protests about the deterioration of the environment.  People gathered in public places to discuss about the environment and also discuss the ways to protect the planet.

They had the groups and these groups were fighting against the spill of oil, power plants and polluting factories, toxic dumps, raw sewage, freeways, pesticides, about wilderness loss and extinction of wildlife. These reflections caused to mark the World Earth Day.
