This video is about Earth Day 2014 - Exploring Clark County, WA
This year, Earth Day is Tuesday, April 22nd. One of the major concerns facing our planet is climate change. Scientists are continuing to research the subject, but there is broad agreement that that our weather patterns are changing and that green house gases and human activities are contributing to the problem. Regardless of what you believe about climate change, most of us can agree that it's common-sense to reduce carbon pollution.
The EPA says research indicates that many people don't see "environmentalism" as an important issue in their lives. Odd, when we consider having clean air to breath, water to drink, and a safe environment is important to everyone. In addition, some of our actions are threatening the survival of beneficial creatures such as bees, butterflies, and frogs. Try to imagine a world without them in it - hopefully that sets off an alarm.
Look around and take note of the many thing we can easily take for granted. Water, air to breath, and the creatures dependent upon a clean habitat. Mindful and thoughtful choices can add up to big benefits today, and for our tomorrows. This Earth Day, let's commit to do our part to promote a cleaner energy economy. This Earth Day, let's all commit to living in harmony with our planet. If not now, when?
Earth Day 2014 - So much to celebrate, so much to lose.
