Earth Day Survives

Some of the passion has faded but Earth Day survives Concern for the environment and social values got impetus from the vision of a senator from Wisconsin. By ShaRae Sears Register Staff Writer Yes, Earth Day still exists, although the bright, tie-dyed colors may have faded a bit. It will be celebrated Tuesday. “We’re afraid of this becoming too fashionable, of it’s being dismissed as a fad,” announced Denis Hayes of Environmental Action, Inc. in 1970. “We feel Earth Day has failed if it stops at pollution, if it doesn’t serve as a catalyst in the values of society.” Born of turbulent times, the first official Earth Day was April 22, 1970. Its mission: “demonstration, action and change.” Millions picketed, marched and acted on questions put to the nation by then Sen. Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin. “Are we prepared to say to manufacturers, ‘You must take that thing off the market or prove that the waste it generated doesn’t pollute the atmosphere?’” the senator asked. “Are we prepared to develop a land-use policy to say ‘You must destroy anymore?’”
