This may be the least celebrated Earth Day ever.*
And yet, ironically, our very inattentiveness is giving Earth a long-needed breather: worldwide pollution has plummeted during the lockdown.
Why is it our planet needed a global pandemic to catch a break?
Wouldn’t it be great if, along with learning from this world crisis how to take better care of ourselves, we also learned how to take better care of our world? I mean, the Moon and Mars are cool places to visit, but they’re also dead. Let’s not add Earth to the list.
Earth Day is Us Day!
*April 22, 2020, marks Earth Day’s 50th Anniversary.
