Earth Day may feature rallies, protests, and other events expected through the weekend. Earth Day's global organizer, EarthDay.org, has given this year's holiday the theme of "Invest In Our Planet," and it will present a live stream of the Earth Day Climate Action Summit today.
This annual observance spotlighting environmental issues comes just weeks after the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change published a report warning that rapid mitigation measures are needed to avoid unsustainable global warming. Although Earth Day is not a federal holiday in the United States, Americans have observed it for 52 years.
Billions of folks worldwide should mark this earth day by instigating climate policy change and shifting everyday human behavior. POTUS Joe Biden plans to spend Earth Day in Seattle to bolster the nation's resilience in the face of threats like wildfires, and a need to rapidly deploy clean energy.

'Earth Day should encourage us to reflect on what we are doing to make our planet a more sustainable and livable place.'
'You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.
'An understanding of the natural world and what’s in it is a source of not only a great curiosity but great fulfillment.'
'Nature never hurries: atom by atom, little by little, she achieves her work. The lesson one learns from yachting or planting is the manners of Nature; patience with the delays of wind and sun, delays of the seasons, bad weather, excess or lack of water.'
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
'It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.'
'Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.'
'Until a man duplicates a blade of grass, nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge. Remedies from chemicals will never stand in favorable comparison with the products of nature, the living cell of a plant, the final result of the rays of the sun, the mother of all life.'
– Thomas Edison
'Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.'
– Margaret Mead
'Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty.'
– John Ruskin
