TODAY IN HISTORY: 1970- The inaugural Earth Day is observed

The first “Earth Day” is observed in the United States. Meant to raise awareness about environmental issues worldwide, the event was promoted by Senator Gaylord Nelson, who hoped that young people would fight for the Earth with the same energy that they’d fought against the war in Vietnam. Today, Earth Day is observed in more than 193 countries.
