Today is earth day and I was remembering my first. The earth had just cooled enough to walk on...Actually Iowa observed Earth Day several years before it was recognized nationally. I was actually introduced to it by a heady science teacher that made us pick up trash as a field day project. It was amazing what we collected in 3 hours, much of it, I'm sure, deposited by some of us. It was an eye opener for me though not as much as it should have been. We've done a pretty good job cleaning up litter and debris but not as well as we should with water and atmosphere. I'm hoping the blind eye some are turning to climate change does not cause future generations to hold this event indoors.
