Earth Day

Today on Your Call: Is Earth Day effective?

 

On today's Your Call we’ll reflect on Earth Day. Environmental journalist Mark Hertsgaard believes that Earth Day is becoming a bland, tired ritual that polluters and politicians have learned to ignore or co-opt. It’s time to reclaim Earth Day and return it to its 1970s roots when millions took to the streets. What will it take to get millions into the streets today? Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org. How would you save Earth Day and the environmental movement? It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
