Earth Day Coming

Earth Day Coming

As we approach Earth Day’s fortieth anniversary, this video from Greenpeace makes clear what’s at stake.


This Thursday, April 22, marks the fortieth anniversary of Earth Day. Forty years after the first Earth Day, the world is in greater peril than ever, but while climate change is the greatest challenge of our time, perhaps of all-time, it also presents an unprecedented opportunity to build a sustainable, clean energy economy.

This video from Greenpeace makes clear what’s at stake and why it’s critical to act now and get involved in whatever way you can.

Tomorrow I’ll be posting my attempt at a comprehensive guide to events, actions and groups you can join this Thursday in the fight to save the planet.

Dear reader,

I hope you enjoyed the article you just read. It’s just one of the many deeply reported and boundary-pushing stories we publish every day at The Nation. In a time of continued erosion of our fundamental rights and urgent global struggles for peace, independent journalism is now more vital than ever.

This month, we’re kicking off an ambitious Summer Fundraising Campaign with the goal of raising $15,000. With your support, we can continue to produce the hard-hitting journalism you rely on to cut through the noise of conservative, corporate media. Please, donate today.

A better world is out there—and we need your support to reach it.
