Earth Day...why Not Every Day?

Earth Day...why not Every Day?
Cracked Earth
Climate Change

I am always happy to share articles that make an impact. This is truly a feisty article about Earth Day from The Nation.com by Wen Stephenson. He begins his article with a quote by Frederick Douglass which I have listed for you to read and share.
If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation are men who want crops without plowing up the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle.”    —Frederick Douglass, 1857
