On Earth Day

Unfortunately, given the number of interesting things that are going on these days that deserve comment and/or discussion, I must go incommunicado for the remainder of the day (at least) in order to pound out a research paper. Before I disappear, however, I did want to note that today marks the thirty-sixth anniversary of Earth Day, and to recommend this article by Brad Knickerbocker from yesterday's Christian Science Monitor. It's a good run-down of many of the advances that have been made in environmental protection since the first Earth Day back in 1970 ... obviously we've still got a long way to go, but as Knickerbocker points out, we have made some progress.
