Earth Day Quarantined


For the past half century Earthday has been a call to action for earth stewardship and climate consciousness. Now, in tragic irony, this year’s Earthday will  be quarantined online by the Corona virus and coordinated across various digital platforms, virtual protests, social media campaigns, and online webinars. will also postpone its live 50th anniversary on the National Mall until October 24-25th. In the tragic context of a global pandemic the goal of Earth Day is more urgent now than ever: to urge citizens of all nations to put pressure their political leaders to take the meaningul steps necessary to minimize climate disruption and begin to stabilize the environment.
