Sunday, April 22, is Earth Day, the 48th anniversary of the celebration. In 1970, the event was first observed by 20 million Americans, mostly students. Today more than a billion people in 192 countries from all walks of life participate in Earth Day events, making it the largest secular observance in the world.

The goal of Earth Day is to educate people about the importance of environmental protection. Whether you believe global climate change is a figment of Al Gore’s imagination or a viable threat to the future of all life on Earth, it is hard to argue that treating the planet with a little respect is a bad idea.
