|April 22nd marks the 32nd annual Earth Day in the United States. The idea for Earth Day came from Gaylord Nelson, a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, who saw a national teach-in on the environment as a way to get environmental protection on the national political agenda. Today, Earth Day is celebrated in more than 175 countries each year and continues to be centered on environmental issues.
