Earth Day: get inspired, take a walk, have a ball!

April 22nd, 2009

Earth Day is here. In my burg, the streets were filled with people walking and biking to school this morning. Odd thing happened. Many of the parents lingered, talking to each other. You couldn’t have herded them off the sidewalks. So much for suburban isolation. Why don’t we do it more often?

But the big Earth Day event today is in New York City this morning, where Denis Hayes, one of the two U.S. Earth Day founders, and Kathleen Rodgers, president of the Earth Day Network, are appearing in Times Square to kick off a call to action for the coming year. They’re calling it the “Green Generation” campaign, an effort to enlarge the movement for a fossil-fuel free future and more green jobs. They’re installing a new rotating “Earth Ball” in Times Square as a symbol of the drive, which culminates on the 40th anniversary of Earth Day in 2010.

So, ummm, let’s not drop the ball on this one. Okay?
