Why Earth Day Doesn’t Matter Anymore


Why Earth Day Doesn’t Matter Anymore

Katie Herzog

For most Americans, Earth Day is probably something you vaguely remember from elementary school. You may have sat through a lesson on reducing, reusing, and recycling, or made a poster with a frowny-faced Earth in art class. If your school was really ambitious, you might have had a bake sale and donated the proceeds to Save the Whales or Save the Rainforests. (My school was not particularly ambitious, so we’d usually watch Free Willy and call it a day.)

As an adult, you probably celebrate Earth Day the way you celebrate Flag Day: You don’t.


If Earth Day doesn’t matter, Green Party presidential hopeful Jill Stein’s Earth Day message certainly shows how we can make it matter:

We can solve the climate crisis by transitioning to 100% clean renewable energy by 2030. We have the resources, the science and the technology. This transition would create millions of sustainable living-wage jobs - a true win-win proposition.
