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.

Or one can take them by their collars and the seat of their pants and throw the bums out!
