Enjoy and celebrate our wonderful towns and planet on this 32nd annual celebration of Earth Day.
Earth Day celebrations have grown tremendously since the first one in 1970, but the human population has doubled. In 1970, it was widely understood that we could not have an environmentally sustainable future if we did not limit our regional and global populations. But now, too few opinion leaders even mention population size.
Senator Gaylord Nelson, one of the founders of that first Earth Day said: "The bigger the population gets, the more serious the problems become…. We have to address the population issue." It is time to get the population issue back on the table.
We'll have a table at the festival, so be sure to stop by and say hello and learn how the most effective "green" activities of all is to have a small family, and to encourage others to do the same....
Better yet, volunteer to help spread the word and break the taboo about population. Please contact us at outreach@HowMany.org for details.
