Millions of people participated, and today, Earth Day continues to be widely celebrated (mostly on April 22).

1970年,旧金山环境保护积极成员约翰麦康奈尔和威斯康星州参议员盖洛德尼尔森分别要求美国人参加群众请愿活动。麦康奈尔 McConnell选择了春分(1970年3月21日),尼尔森 Nelson选择了4月22日。

Common Earth Day activities include planting trees, cleaning up litter, or simply enjoying nature through hiking, gardening, or taking a stroll in a local park.

共同的地球日活动包括种植树木,清理垃圾,或通过远足,园艺或在当地公园散步享受大自然。

EARTH DAY QUOTES AND POETRY

地球日的诗歌

 

Summer, fall, winter, spring,

The seasons rotate as each brings


Its special beauty to this Earth of ours.


Winter’s snow and summer’s flowers;


Frozen rivers will flow come spring,


There is a renewal of everything.


–Edna Frohock

夏天,秋天,冬天,春天,

每个季节都会旋转

它对我们这个地球的特殊之美。

冬天的雪和夏天的花朵;

冰冻的河流会流到春天,

一切都在轮转。

While the bright radiant sun in centre glows,


The earth in annual motion round it goes;


At the same time on its own axis reels,


And gives us change of seasons as it wheels.


–The 1793 Old Farmer’s Almanac

 

O Spring-time sweet!

天空当中明亮的太阳照耀着,

地球一年一度的围绕着它;

同时在自己的轴上卷轴,

随着卷轴的到来,让我们改变季节。
