Earth Day – April 22, 2012

Participate to Mobilize the Earth

 This excerpt is from a great website: http://www.earthday.org/2012

For Earth Day 2012 we are mobilizing the planet simply to say one thing: the Earth won’t wait. It seems that environmental issues have been put on the back burner as we are in the midst of a global recession. Yet, the problems that the Earth faces will not subside simply because we choose to ignore them. We continue to constantly pump CO2 into the atmosphere as climate change advances unabated. Our rivers, streams, lakes and oceans remain polluted along with our air. Nowadays, it seems all too often that we hear of another oil spill or pipeline break or another mountain leveled to mine for dirty coal. 

It is time for us to Mobilize the Earth™ and speak with one voice, one message. We are tired of the lip service paid to the concerns of everyday people. It’s time our leaders put us on the path to sustainability and address our economic future by taking the green economy seriously.

Join us on Earth Day, April 22, 2012, as we Mobilize the Earth™ and demand action from the world’s governments to embrace renewable energy, invest in energy efficiency, end dirty fuel subsidies, and make energy accessible to all.  Together we will marshal A Billion Acts of Green®, gather petitions, register voters and build the support necessary to enact change. 

At the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro in June, 2012, we will demand that our world leaders stop delaying and begin protecting our planet now.  We cannot wait to act; our Earth’s future is at stake.
