Earth Day

Posted by Carmen Maria Guevara Protzel on Apr 20, 2019 9:09:00 AM

Earth Day celebrates every April 22nd with the purpose of increasing public awareness of the growing environmental problems. Back in 1969, there was an oil catastrophe when an oil well blew out off the coast of Santa Barbara, and more than 3 million gallons of oil spewed. Thousands of sea lions, seals, dolphins, and seabirds died. After witnessing the ravages of the oil spill and inspired by the student anti-war movement, Gaylord Nelson (the US Senator from Wisconsin) was inspired to force environmental protection onto the US national political agenda. They chose April 22nd for the date as it falls between spring break and final exams.
