World Environment Day

A few days ago, I found out that June 5th (yesterday) was World Environment Day. I was shocked by how under-marketed this celebration of sorts is. Earth Day (April 22) gets much more attention across civic, academic, and media circuits, but all World Environment Day got was a few blog postings. And a tree planting activity as noted on its website. What a shame that such a well-meaning holiday has not received some warranted attention! Has anyone ever heard of celebrations for this day in the past?

    ALgae and its creation into oil is a great new concept. Currently several companys are doing it and I believe it will help our great countrys addiction and dependence on Arab oil. We need to begin to sever the umbilical cord they have nailed to us. Michael Manis_Jericho NY
