Earth Day - 22/4/20 - As lock-down comes closer to finishing, what better time to reflect and consider the earth we live in today. Think of the changes that have happened since the inception of Earth Day in 1970.
The theme for Earth Day 2020 is Climate Action. I think it should be more about Health Action. Action for physical and mental health, for ourselves and our loved ones, the health of our homes and our work environments we are all about to go back to.
Earth Day is about raising awareness on the negative impact our actions as mankind have on our environment and earth as a whole. Does that include the economic impact on the action of our leaders to Covid 19? This is going to take a long time to recover from.
The actions and promises our Government has made for planet protection - zero carbon emissions have faded to temporary insignificance - except to say - with few cars on the roads, less industry emissions and no cruise ships in our waters, maybe NZ has done its bit. We now have even better Clean Fresh Air.
Keep well mentally and look after your own health and your loved ones. Looking forward to Bubble Unite day.
