  1. Earth Day History (Lawrence and McConnell)
      Provides a history of the development of Earth Day and argues that we should celebrate it on the Spring equinox rather than April 22. Points out that April 22 was set aside for environmental action and education, while the Spring equinox Earth Day was set aside for a much larger purpose. The purpose of the vernal equinox celebration is to "peacefully end the scourge of war…," "provide an opportunity for the children of the disinherited poor to obtain their rightful inheritance in the Earth…," and "redirect the energies of industry and society from progress through products...to progress through harmony with Earth's natural systems for improving the quality of life…." 4-00
