Q Essay: So this is Earth Day, and what have we done?
Tuesday, April 22, 2014 |
Jian dedicates today's opening essay to Earth Day 2014 -- whether or not the day is circled on most calendars.
"It is, perhaps, the greatest indicator of the state of Earth Day that not everyone really knows it's Earth Day," notes Jian, adding that even those who are active on environmental issues may hesitate to single out the importance of one date.
"The truth is, we're not going to resolve our greater dysfunctional relationship with the earth today, even though it would be a good idea. We all know that.
But it might be a thought to pick something that bothers us about how we deal with mother nature ... and face it."
