“Today is #EarthDay so we rolled up our sleeves early to participate in our #treeplantingchallenge every year. This is our way of supporting #marchforscience and recognizing #EarthDay.
Everyone who believes about #RealScience and #NotClimateChangeDeniers participated in the #MarchforScience across the United States today.
I have planted my tree this year 2017. Last week, my elderly neighbor asked me to help them plant a tree in their lot, and we agreed to do it today in recognition of #EarthDay. How about you? There are many ways to participate in this in your own environment. Talk to your neighbors and friends; do something together to help sustain our natural environment.
A Climate Scientist from Pennsylvania State University Mr. Michael Mann shared his insights:

The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau issued the following statements for #EarthDay.
“Today, we join the global community to celebrate Earth Day – a time to connect with nature and reaffirm our commitment to build a cleaner, more sustainable world for our children.
“As Canadians, we have a responsibility to safeguard our planet and natural treasures. I am proud of the steps our Government has taken to protect the environment and promote clean growth. These steps include historic domestic and international agreements that will help us respond to pressing environmental challenges, grow the economy, and build a cleaner, healthier tomorrow.
“On Earth Day, we recognize Indigenous cultures that have long understood the intricate links that exist between land, water, air, and all living things. Ensuring that decisions today serve generations tomorrow requires an active effort from all of us.
“Canada looks forward to hosting World Environment Day on June 5 this year. Like Earth Day, it will be an occasion to celebrate our connections to our environment and to each other.
“On behalf of the Government of Canada, Sophie and I encourage all Canadians to take a moment today to go outside, find renewal in nature, and appreciate the environment that connects us all.” (source: http://pm.gc.ca/eng/)
