The Earth celebrated yesterday its 43th anniversary since the UN decreed the International Day of Mother Earth on February 26, 1971.
Its supporter, U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson, established on April 22, 1970, this day to raise awareness to the problems of overpopulation, pollution production, conservation of biodiversity and other environmental concerns to protect the Earth.
For this reason, communities, organizations and governments around the world celebrated on Monday, with a series of events to reaffirm the social commitment to the planet. The theme this year was “The face of climate change,” a phrase in which the United Nations have tried to set the focus of the environmental impact that the planet is suffering from climate change, and specifically, in their harmful effects to people, animals, ecosystems and natural resources.
