A bike ride to support eco-transport in Moscow, a "Bye-bye throw-away culture!" week in Beijing, and an underwater clean up in Egypt are a few of the thousands of Earth Day events happening around the world. In Washington, DC, a climate action outreach to legislators began on Monday with a news conference at the National Press Club.
"This week, April 16th through the 20th, Earth Day Network is bringing new and diverse voices from across America to Capitol Hill to catalyze immediate action on climate," said EDN President Kathleen Rogers. "We want to talk about the health, economic, and social impacts of climate and our proposed solutions for inclusion in climate legislation." The Earth Day Network aims to persuade lawmakers that a drastic cut in greenhouse gas emissions is required to avert the worst effects of global warming - 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050.
Across the country people are picking up litter, recycling obsolete electronics, creating Earth Day art and videos, showing films, attending concerts, holding block parties and fashion shows - in fact 10,084 events of all kinds are taking place in the United States.
Around the world, many thousands of events are being held to honor the Earth this weekend and on into May and June. In Moscow, the group Carfree Russia is holding a festival Sunday that brings together people who love nature, bike-riding, and music and are eager to do something good for the environment. A Critical Mass bike ride in support of eco-transport finishes in Izmailovski Park where the festival continues with a concert at the park's solar stage, and organic, vegetarian food.
In China's capital city, the group Global Village of Beijing will be busy through April 28 with "Bye-bye throw-away culture" Week. The group aims to convince shoppers to stop using so many plastic bags. It is estimated that Beijing consumes nearly 10 billion plastic bags annually, the equivalent of some 27 million bags per day.
In Iran, the Center for the Advancement of Rural Women is holding a village cleanup from today through Wednesday in conjunction with Global Youth Service Day and Earth Day. The Village Clean Up! initiative is designed to educate and mobilize youth, as well as raise environmental awareness about the impacts of garbage, especially plastics on the ecosystem.
