Google Celebrates Earth Day

Earth Day 2015 has been marked with an animated doodle on the Google homepage. In 1970, 20 million Americans took to the streets to spread the message of environmental awareness, and in the process created the first ever Earth Day. To honor what has become a global observance, a new Google Doodle has been created for Earth Day 2015.

Celebrated on 22nd April, Earth Day was first proposed by John McConnell in 1969 at the UNESCO Conference in San Fransisco. However, he put forth the idea to celebrate the day on 21st March. Soon after his suggestion was put forth, Gaylord Nelson, a US senator proposed having 22nd April as Earth Day instead. His suggestion was taken up and since then, the 22nd of April is celebrated as International Mother Earth Day every year.

Year 11's, 9´s & 8's

This is a very interesting video. It is linking different issues we are developing in geography such as China , TNC's, economic development and energy & resources.
Have a look to this interesting documental and the problems generated with pollution related with the production of energy based on burning fossil fuels such as coal and the non stop lifestyle of the TNC's were they are just focusing on their revenues and very little on the environment and the future of us all.
