As Earth Day approaches, I have mixed feelings. On the one hand, I feel like it's good to have one day a year where the focus is on the environment. Earth Day may build awareness in people, and it might give some people enough pause to significantly alter their lives. On the other hand, shouldn't every day be Earth Day? Many argue that Earth Day allows people to feel good about recycling their aluminum cans, driving their Toyota Prius, and bringing their own bags, when the truth is those actions barely scrape the surface in terms of what might be necessary to combat the forthcoming environmental crises. What do you think?To participate, submit links to your posts to aplscarnival [at] gmail [dot] com by April 20. The carnival will be posted on Earth Day, April 22.
On another note, we are looking for hosts for the next few months. If you are interested in hosting, and you haven't hosted yet, let me know in the comments to this post. After that, we'll open it up to people who have already hosted, but we want to give everyone the opportunity to host if they so choose.
