WASHINGTON DC, US: Earth Day- 22 April 2012 marks the anniversary of birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. The fight for a clean environment continues in a climate of increasing urgency. Earth Day 2012 will act as a launch pad for growing the environmental movement and will put forth a bold declaration demanding immediate action to secure renewable energy for all and a sustainable future for our planet.

As the 42nd Anniversary of Earth Day approaches, people are becoming frustrated with the failure of governments to take any steps toward protecting and preserving the environment. The Earth Day 2012 campaign is designed to provide people with the opportunity to unite their voices in a call for a sustainable future and direct them toward quantifiable outcomes. The movement will be comprised of individuals of every age from all corners of the Earth, and will call upon local, national, and international leaders to put an end to fossil fuel subsidies, embrace renewable energy technology, improve energy efficiency, and make energy universally accessible.

The problems that the Earth faces will not subside simply because we choose to ignore them. We continue to constantly pump carbon dioxide into the atmosphere as climate change advances unabated. Rivers, streams, lakes and oceans remain polluted along with our air. Nowadays, it seems all too often that we hear of another oil spill or pipeline break or another mountain leveled to mine for dirty coal. Earth Day is a day for action; a chance to show how important the environment is. Earth Day is about uniting voices around the globe in support of a healthy planet. This year for Earth Day 2012, we should mobilize the Earth and demand a sustainable future.
