Earth Day Flag
A crowd of people gather near a large poster of planet Earth calling for “Help!!” on the first Earth Day conservation awareness celebration on April 22, 1970, in New York City.
Now-a-days, unfortunately, most Americans feel that they have heard quite enough about all the problems our lifestyles have caused, and many are heartily tired of all the calls-to-arms over global warming, environmental degradation, etc. Many people are skeptical that we have anything to do with global climate change, that it is just another “natural cycle” of the Earth, a hoax perpetrated by scientists, Democrat politicians, and other famously “liberal” people. It has been even said that Earth Day has outlived its usefulness, and there is even somewhat of a backlash against environmental protection – at the very least, many people have gotten extremely blasé about it.
