9780299180409: Beyond Earth Day: Fulfilling the Promise

    Gaylord Nelson is known and respected throughout the world as a founding father of the modern environmental movement and creator of one of the most successful and influential public awareness campaigns ever undertaken on behalf of global stewardship: Earth Day.
    Now in his eighties, Nelson delivers a timely and urgent message with the same eloquence with which he has articulated the nation’s environmental ills through the decades. He details the planet’s most critical concerns—from species and habitat losses to global climate changes and population growth. In outlining his strategy for planetary health, he inspires citizens to reassert the environment as a top priority.
    A book for anyone who cares deeply about our environment and wants to know what we can and must do now to save it, Beyond Earth Day is a classic guide by one of the natural world’s great defenders.

From the Back Cover:

"You show me pollution and I will show you people who are not paying their own way, people who are stealing from the public, people who are getting the public to pay their costs of production. All environmental pollution is a subsidy."-Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

"The life of the planet and all of its inhabitants have been positively affected by the extraordinary vision and work of Senator Gaylord Nelson. The remarkable agenda he put forth in 1970 is ever more salient today, his wisdom and words needed now more than ever."-Paul G. Hawken, Natural Capital Institute, author of The Ecology of Commerce

About the Author:

Gaylord Nelson was governor of Wisconsin from 1959 to 1963 and served in the U.S. Senate from 1963 to 1981. Millions of Americans joined him in observing the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970. He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1995 for his contributions to the environmental protection movement and has served as counselor to the Wilderness Society since 1981.
