SC 4730 Environmental ScienceUnit 2 Research Earth DayEach year, Earth Day -- April 22 -- marks the anniversary of what many consider the birthof the modern environmental movement in 1970.There are two simple ways to celebrate EarthDay to make the world a little better," said Nathaniel Weston, an associate professor ofenvironmental science at Villanova University. "The first is to promote understanding ofimportant environmental issues so that more people are aware of the critical actions we need totake to protect our environment. The second is to commit yourself to service on or around EarthDay — plant some trees, clean up a stream or help your local community garden."World's leaders acknowledged the scientific fact that the leading cause of global warmingis carbon emissions from fossil-fuel consumption, and that something must be done to addressthose rising emissions.Pollution in lakes, reservoirs and rivers was the other big concern in2015 Earth day.
