Thx Gaylord Nelson - Happy Earth Day

April 22. Earth Day 2020

I personally am grateful for our Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson, a Democrat; who wrote legislation that created Earth Day in 1970.
This is one of the very few globally celebrated events, that has led to environmental awareness by all humans and most nations.

Keep recycling, Keep planting and Keep Safe.

Right after that, Republican Richard Nixon signed into law the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act, plus established the EPA.

Tell all your GOP friends. You know, the ones who can somehow live with smog and chewy Flint water.
