Today Is Earth Day!

Today, earthlings are duty-bound to contribute at least one selfless act for Mother Earth. After all, Earth is our one and only solace in this mighty universe. It wouldn't hurt just to be conscious of our own trash, throw the same properly, walk to save gas and help clean the air at the same time, or plant a seedling or what have you.

Founded in 1970, Earth Day is a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's environment. According to Wikipedia, Earth Day 2010 also coincides with the World People's Conference on Climate Change, to be held in Cochabamba, Bolivia, and with the International Year of Biodiversity. Ah yes, climate change. But that topic is so mundane, right? Note the sarcasm here.

As a nature lover, I hope to leave my Earth - your earth, our Earth - much better than I found it. Happy Earth Day, y'all!
