Today is the 52nd anniversary of the first Earth Day, when 20 million people took to the streets and attended teach-ins throughout the U.S. to learn about how human actions – and the corporate drive for profits – were destroying the environment.

The first Earth Day was organized in response to the disastrous Santa Barbara oil spill. What has happened in the decades since? Not enough!
