Speaking for the Earth

Publisher Description

THE OFFICIAL BOOK OF THE FIRST EARTH DAY. Speaking for the Earth is written by United States Senate Candidate, Howard Hughes aide, and world-renowned environmentalist John Meier. It was written by Meier in 1970 for the first Earth Day. In 1970 Meier was at the forefront of the environmental movement, including having resided on United States President Richard Nixon's Task Force on Resources and Environment and receiving international acclaim from Countries for his work on the environment.

Earth Day is April 22 and is now celebrated by over 193 countries and 1 billion people worldwide.

Meier has re-released the book for the Anniversaries of Earth Day as he finds it of the utmost importance for the environmental movement today to look back and see what has and hasn't been done with environmental issues that Meier brought up in 1970, including many issues that are just now getting the recognition they deserve such as the warming of the earth, which the book deals with well before the word global warming was coined, safety in mines which recently has been headline news, dealing with wastes that could be recycled, even suggesting the use of electric cars which only now has finally begun to be implemented.

Many of the hottest news topics today are around the environment, and having a look back over 50 years shows how many of the "new" environmental solutions that governments have been proposing aren't actually new and that many of the problems had been brought up many years ago with still little to nothing having been done about them.

Editorial Reviews

"Meier's book remains a powerful (and tragically timeless) call to action for citizen conservations to make their voices heard."

Publishers Weekly BookLife Review 

"Engaging and instructive…remains upsettingly relevant…A historical document that remains a powerful call to action."

Kirkus Reviews
