I remember  the first Earth Day back on April 22, 1970. Although there were world wide gatherings and demonstrations what I remember most is a big trash pick up around the high school. There is a photo in the year book at the end of the day of a friend lounging on top of a big pile of trash. The earth has changed in many ways since 1970. In some ways much better. The rivers are cleaner, we recycle and reuse more, but we produce so much more “stuff” and there are so many more people. The climate is warming and the ice caps are melting into the seas.

When I was growing up they used to warn us about the coming Megalopolis. A continuous stretch of development along the east coast  from Boston to Washington, DC.  They were forecasting one large urban region. The predictions came true but it is much wider and denser and now reaches just south of Fredericksburg, VA and coming your way.

Take care of the earth it is the only one we have.
