Making every day Earth Day – literally
It's June 8, and you know what that means: Happy World Oceans Day!
We understand that you might still be exhausted from having just celebrated World Environment Day this past Friday, International Day for Biological Diversity on May 22, and Bike to Work Day on May 14, but we hope that you can muster a little more energy today to, you know, think about the oceans.
We know what you're thinking: Didn't we just have a World Oceans Day?
You'd think that the world's weather experts would be a bit peeved about someone declaring a wetlands holiday on Groundhog Day, but don't worry: The weather people got their due on March 23, World Meteorological Day, in which participants – and we're sure you were one of them – took some time to think about "weather, climate and the air we breathe."
And then five days later, on March 28, you pondered the atmosphere a little more during Earth Hour, when we all turned our lights off for an hour (and possibly made things worse with all those paraffin candles).
