Don't get me wrong:  as a lifelong environmentalist, I think that Earth Day (April 22) serves an invaluable purpose both as a celebration of our wondrous planet and as an opportunity to draw attention to the many serious - literally "life threatening" - challenges facing our natural environment.  The only problem with Earth Day is that it's a single day once a year, while our responsibility to the environment is 24/7, every day of the year.
