Pop Quiz: Get Ready For Earth Day


Answer: A) 1970

The idea for an Earth Day came from Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, who couldn't understand how it was possible that an issue as important as the environment was hardly being discussed in the media, so he created the first Earth Day, on April 22, 1970. An estimated 20 million people nationwide attended festivities that day.
