Earth Day Festivities to Be Held on April 22, 2016 Around the World
WEST PALM BEACH, FL --(Marketwired - January 19, 2016) - Increasing action is being taken by governments to combat and prevent the effects of global climate change. In his most recent State of the Union Address, President Obama stated, "Now we've got to accelerate the transition away from dirty energy. Rather than subsidize the past, we should invest in the future." Following this trend, the Paris Agreement has been drafted under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. If ratified, the agreement will go into effect as of this Earth Day and set goals for carbon dioxide emissions, global average temperature increase and the financing of environment-conscious development.
Earth Day was first launched April 22, 1970, in the United States by Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin. Approximately 20 million Americans participated in the first Earth Day, which helped spur on the creation of several pieces of environmental legislation including the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act and Endangered Species Act. Today, the Earth Day Network coordinators with over 50,000 partners in 192 countries, bringing the number of Earth Day participants to over 1 billion.
