Happy Earth Day 2013!

Earth Day today... take a moment to breathe and give thanks for our air, earth and water. 

I've blogged about Earth Day before, in 2010, 2011 and 2012. I think of it as a fairly important day. The earth supports us, we should do what we can to support it. 

There's lots of information online about Earth Day, about what's happening with the earth and about things we can do to help out. I thought I'd share just a little bit of that with you.

1. The history of Earth Day. Did you know it first started in 1970? I didn't... or maybe I did and forgot. 

2. TED-Ed's Lesson worth sharing:  Phenology and nature's shifting rhythms by Regina Brinker... discussing how the natural cycles of plants and animals are affected by rising global temperatures. Note: humans are animals...  

3. Earth Day every day... Omega's teachers on how we can make small changes in our lives that would make a difference for us all: 

4. Today's Google Doodle... for a bit of fun and just because it's really well done.
