Earth Day 2019 - April 22nd

Eleanor McCloskey, CND for JPIC

Protect Our Species – the Theme for Earth Day this year. It is common knowledge to anyone who cares to hear and understand that the world is facing a constant and rapid reduction of species, plant-life and animal-life. Human activity has brought about a negative impact on most living things. Birds, insects, mammals, water-dwellers and diverse forms of plant life are in a struggle against extinction. There is hope. Scientists assure us we can slow the rate of extinction of life forms if people everywhere - educators, consumers, faith leaders and followers, activists, and concerned citizens - work together on policies to protect individual species and their habitat. Earth Day urges us towards a global movement that calls on us to embrace nature and all its values.

To ponder:

1. "We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children." — Native American Proverb)

2. "Suburbia is where the developer bulldozes out the trees, then names the streets after them." — Bill Vaughan
