I remember the first Earth Day well. I was a senior in high school and so full of hope. Now 50 years later...............it is quite a mixed bag, isn't it?

We planted several trees in the high school quad, hoping they would absorb some of the greater LA area smog. I will say, though...air quality, while not great, is MUCH BETTER than when I was growing up. Gotta keep working!

All we can do is keep on trying.

And keep the pressure on the people in charge.

Amen to that Frank....yet I still feel like screaming... being an old math teacher it is REAL hard not extrapolate where we are going if we don't act radical real soon...once it is gone... we can't ask for a second chance. Like the old cartoon a guy mad about the cost of it all: "What if climate change is a hoax...and we had to make a better world for nothing?!"

I wasn’t a senior, but was in school. I remember going on a trash patrol around the school neighborhood, complete with Jonny Horizon trash bags. I thought by end of the 70’s we had environmental conservation figured out. I was wrong.

Sure got that right Steve! Gee, 50 years ago, I'd been out of the Army for a while, worked some and had just  taken the big step of going to school to get my BA on the GI bill.  Those were the days B) !
