From Gerald R. Lucas

It’s Earth Day


So do something for the planet that we need, but that doesn’t need us.

Put your politics aside for a day, and consider what would not only help the world, but would also help us. Check out Repower America. They want to Repower America with 100% clean electricity within 10 years. This goal means new industries with high-paying jobs. It means lower energy costs. It means replacing coal and foreign oil with clean domestic sources. It is a vital step toward protecting the environment and solving the climate crisis. It means considering what we do to the planet that we need for our survival.

After all, Earth Day is really about humanity’s survival, not the Earth’s.
