Celebration of Earth Day 2010, a planetary movement that celebrates its 40 years after his creation by Gaylord Nelson

clip_image003America celebrates his 40th birthday of the Earth Day, that was born April 22 1970, after 7 years of active engagements and of student’s complicities, alongside the eminent Senator of the Wisconsin, Gaylord Nelson,

clip_image001 to modify the behaviors lives to screw of our environment,

clip_image001[1] to create a responsible & greens current, and,

clip_image001[2] to let the voice of the environment hear in the political speeches.

This movement marked of a white rock the structure of the Environment protection, a movement that wants itself educational, sensibilisator and active, a movement that has for order word, the one to do Earth Day everyday and to take advantage of his anniversary date to mobilize all the good wills, of sort to create positive actions in mass…

clip_image005 The mobilization of the American people, generated by the Earth Day of April 22 1970, thus allowed the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency of United States (US EPA), December 2 1970, is some months only after his own creation and with him, the adoption of a law, that since, has more evolved while integrating human health equally: «Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species…»

It is while supporting actions builders and towns through the world, that one obtains the better results. Each to his manner, can contribute to changes behavior in favor of our Earth. This is the reason why the Earth Day quickly transformed itself in a federator worldwide movement of actions for the protection of the environment…

Of big Men believed, well before us, to the interest to bet on the protection and the security of the Environment. We are all masters of the present time and of a tendency to the evolution… certain that the future belongs to the projects realization. And it is the transformation of the project in realization that leads us to believe that every action is traced the human footprint… Then let this man and bring our contribution to protecting the environment, ecosystem, of our Earth…

Good health begins with each of the health of our Mother Earth.

In no other country to the world it is possible to find an agency of Environmental protection also revives only the US EPA… It opposed to American dream, that can seem utopian, the EPA could define itself as the American action. I want to say by there, an agency that depends on the US government and that contributes actively in favor of the Environment, with the objective to be very interested in all that the surrounds, such as the associations, foundations, etc… and their fights. Thus the EPA replied in favor of the action conducted by for the safeguard of the Appalachia’s mountains… Hope that a law will result to classify definitively these mountains in the historic and geographic American heritage…

To all those that are very interested in the environment, I am anxious to signal that the EPA is a source of very useful information for all ages and across the world…

I would want to recall a quote of the former US President, the President William J. Clinton, that in 1995, called the American people to follow the tracks of Gaylord Nelson, what he quoted as the Father of the Earth Day:


“The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the highest honor given to civilians in the United States… Twenty-five years ago this year, Americans came together for the very first Earth Day… They came together… because of one American – Gaylord Nelson. As the father of Earth Day… He inspired us to remember that the stewardship of our natural resources is the stewardship of the American Dream. He is the worthy heir of the tradition of Theodore Roosevelt… And I hope that Gaylord Nelson’s shining example will illuminate all the debates in this city for years to come.”

President William J. Clinton, 9/29/95

40 years after the birth of the Earth Day, the battle’s horse of Senator of the Wisconsin, Gaylord Nelson, (that as early as 1962 attempted to mobilize the attention on the importance to think Environment), who seen officially the day, April 22 1970, this very beautiful quote would deserve to be somewhat modified:

… I hope that Gaylord Nelson’s shining example will illuminate all countries of the WORLD… I hope to imagine the LIFE of the future generation without army industries… The World People can make of the War word, a World War against pollution, against climate changes, against poverty, against diseases…

THE HISTORY OF EARTH DAY by Senator Gaylord Nelson, Founder of Earth Day


Begin us this weekend of the Earth Day with the behavioral and philosophical power of a quote of Saint-Exupery, already resumed by Jacques Languirand (spokesperson of the "Jour de la Terre”)

«We do not inherit earth of our ancestors, we borrow it from our children…»

… to meditate

At last, here of other links that cannot leave us insensitive facing the quote of Saint-Exupery:

    Hi Dear Connie, Tom and to all,Just THANK YOU a lot for your comment!!!… @ Tom… You know, I have the luck to have been born the year of the Eart Day, and even the week of the Earth Day… I have myself in a way of him to do honor and to celebrate it in priority in comparison with my birthday, who was an extraordinary surprise organized by my close ones… As I had written it, this Happiness of a surprised and unforgettable birthday, I share it with our Mother the Earth and with you all… That all my vows, and they are very numerous, are divided and not just shared in a perfect equality between we all, to allow us to realize all our projects builders… And that my vision of the Happiness is also yours… Even if I know, that you already done Earth Day everyday, and that certain of you, speaks also about it in their blog, such as you Connie!861CF597831362D6!19963.entry , and I thank you Connie of the inspiration that you transmit in your messages… I wish you to all an excellent WeekEnd while imagining a World done only of visionary technologies, Able to integrate an event continuation for reply: *** to the protection of our Mother Earth, *** to the preservation of the Ecosystems, *** to the right to a happy existence for all (without precariousness, without distress, without famine), *** to the access to the cares for all, *** to the education for all… The visionary technologies are not utopian; they are a based reality on calculations of probabilities of apparitions… The visionary technologies are the fruit of the heads who are linking, thinking and builders… Let us support them and give them the means to act…Have a Green, Wonderful and Blessing WeekEnd everyone, Bye-Bye and see you Monday !!!…
