April 22nd – Earth Day in Chinese is 地球日. Protecting the earth is something many of us are all still a bit too casual about—we try to do something when we remember and don’t feel too bad when we don’t.
This year, our actions on Earth have taken on a new urgency as the science is showing unequivocably that climate change is rapidly accelerating, it is harming our health through floods, fires, and heat, and we are now left with only 11 years to simply avoid the most devastating consequences.
Don’t just have a happy Earth Day—let’s take action!
