I think of Earth Day—founded in 1970—as the fulcrum point of the cultural Renaissance known as "the Sixties." As a functioning holiday it's become rather shabby and diffuse over the years, even as Earth's problems have continued to deepen. But there's a lot of Earth left—for instance, the entire population of the United States could fit into the state of Texas with more than one acre for each household. ("Space and the city," The Economist, April 4th-10th 2015, p. 11).
Why not take (or print) one picture today celebrating, or commenting on, or recording some aspect of Earth?
