Fun facts about International Earth Day

Today I want to share some CA-PI-TA-LES information with you about Saturday April 22 , which celebrates the Alexanders by the way. It is the 112th day of the Gregorian calendar and the 113th in the event of a leap year, it is not nothing. There are only 253 days left to keep your good resolutions. Otherwise, for the French Republic, it is the day of the Fern, while for the rest of the world it is the DAY OF THE EARTH , "Earth Day" for those who are always between two planes. It made me want to focus on our beautiful planet Earth!

When I discovered the origin of Earth Day.

Another blow from the Americans! It was Senator Gaylord Nelson who encouraged students to develop environmental awareness projects in their communities on April 22, 1970. It officially became an international day in 1990 and was later renamed International Mother Earth Day. by the United Nations in 2009.

Finally, Earth Day was a political story, for a change. There is an “Earth Day Proclamation” signed by world leaders, government officials and the United Nations. Nobody's ever heard of it, have they? I invite you to click on the Proclamation link and read the list of signatories to the end.

After all these revelations, I was not discouraged. I continued the search to find constructive initiatives for the future of the Planet and the preservation of our resources. After all, its primary objective is to support the Protection of the Environment. Finally, I learned lots of little “fun facts”:

When I learned that the year 2017 was longer than that of 2016. That I understood that it was linked to the irregular rotation of the Earth... And that therefore we all lived one second longer in the total ignorance on the night of January 1, 2017. If I had known, I would have done something a little crazy to celebrate!

When I learned that the Earth's average orbital speed is 29,783 km/s.

That's about 48,000 times the speed of Concorde to give you an idea. Finally, don't trust me too much, I may have done a BAC S, it was there… I don't know, you have to count in fact.

When I read that in 2011, 28 million trees were planted on Earth Day in Afghanistan by Earth Day Network teams.

When I discovered that in 2012, on this same date, 100,000 Chinese took to their bikes to save fuel and reduce CO2 emissions.

In turn, get involved locally if you wish, on the occasion of Earth Day by searching for actions organized near you on the French Earth Day website . And above all, continue your daily actions to recycle and save energy, educate those around you, and stay curious!
