Earth Day 1998 Fact Sheet

Earth Day Reflections

  

"[Earth Day is] symbolic of how many indigenous people have been living for thousands of years and how we should be living the other 364 days of the year." -Actor Ed Begley, Jr., Earth Day 1995 interview

 

"It is time for environmentalists to turn their attention away from the beltway, to re-connect with communities across the land. It is time for us to stop preaching at people and begin to listen to them." -Denis Hayes, Executive Director of Earth Day 1970 on the occasion of Earth Day's 25th Anniversary

 

"The scientific community cautions that no one can ever say that a particular event, even a 500 year flood, is connected to global climate change." -Vice President Albert Gore, Earth Day 1997 statement
