Abstract:

"On Earth Day 1970, twenty million Americans displayed their commitment to a clean environment. It was called the largest demonstration in human history, and it permanently changed the nation's political agenda. By Earth Day 2000, participation had exploded to 500 million people in 167 countries." "The seemingly simple idea - a day set aside to focus on protecting our natural environment - was the brainchild of U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin. It accomplished, far beyond his expectations, his lifelong goal of putting the environment onto the nation's and the world's political agendas.".

"Nelson ranks as one of history's leading environmentalists. He also played a major role as an early, outspoken opponent of the Vietnam War, and as a senate insider was a key player in civil rights, poverty, civil liberties, and consumer protection issues."--BOOK JACKET.
