99 is not 100: A Call to Action

Abstract: Out of the chaos that was the universe, the Earth came to be and nurtured life. Everything was within our grasp and so civilizations were born. Over time, however, all we did was take and replenished nothing. Earth Day began in 1970 as a way to mark the consciousness of a generation saying we have to care for the Earth as she cared for us. It was a day set aside for reflection but it was also a call to action. Now, 45 years later, we must re-energize a new generation. The sands of time continue to flow. The time to act is now. The actions we must take is the bottom line of this presentation.
