briefly bout EARTH DAY 

The History Of Earth Day 

The first Earth Day celebration took place on March 21, 1970, the vernal equinox that year. It was the brainchild of John McConnell, a newspaper publisher and influential community activist, who proposed the idea of a global holiday called Earth Day at a UNESCO Conference on the Environment in 1969.

McConnell suggested an annual observance to remind the people of Earth of their shared responsibility as environmental stewards. He chose the vernal equinox - the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere, the first day of autumn in the southern hemisphere - because it is a day of renewal.

At the vernal equinox (always March 20 or March 21), night and day are the same length everywhere on Earth. McConnell believed that Earth Day should be a time of equilibrium when people could put aside their differences and recognize their common need to preserve Earth’s resources.

On February 26, 1971, U.N. Secretary-General U Thant signed a proclamation saying that the United Nations would celebrate Earth Day annually on the vernal equinox, thereby officially establishing the March date as the international Earth Day.

In his Earth Day statement on March 21, 1971, U Thant said, “May there only be peaceful and cheerful Earth Days to come for our beautiful Spaceship Earth as it continues to spin and circle in frigid space with its warm and fragile cargo of animate life.” The United Nations continues to celebrate Earth Day each year by ringing the Peace Bell at U.N. headquarters in New York at the precise moment of the vernal equinox.

The Importance of Earth Day Now

No matter when you celebrate Earth Day, its message about the personal responsibility we all share to “think globally and act locally” as environmental stewards of planet Earth has never been more timely or important.

Our planet is in crisis due to global warming, overpopulation, and other critical environmental issues. Every person on Earth shares the responsibility to do as much as they can to preserve the planet’s finite natural resources today and for future generations.

Sejarah Hari Bumi Sedunia

Hari bumi diadakan untuk meningkatkan kesedaran serta penghayatan kepada alam sekitar. PBB juga meraikan HAri Bumi yang dimulakan oleh John McConnel pada 1969
Sejarah Hari Bumi bermula apabila Senator US Gaylord Nelson mengumumkan bahawa musim bunga 1970  akan diadakan demonstrasi bagi pembelaan alam sekitar. Pada 22 April 1970 dikatakan hampir 20juta rakyat US memenuhi taman dan auditorium untuk menyambutnya

Setiap tahun Hari Bumi 22 April menandakan ulang tahun kelahiran bagi gerakan alam sekitar yang telah  dimulakan sejak 1970. Pada tahun 1990, peringatan Hari Bumi mulai berkembang secara global. Sekitar 200juta orang dari 141 negara di dunia turut sama menyambutnya..

kan ke bagus kalau2 kerja membersihkan bumi semudah ni????

till my fingers meet the keyboard again :)
take care :)
