Earth Day is celebrated on April 22 each year to inspire awareness of and appreciation for the Earth's environment. The day is observed worldwide in many countries.

These are intended to inspire awareness of and appreciation for the Earth's environment. The United Nations celebrates Earth Day, which was founded by John McConnell in 1969, each year on the March equinox, while a global observance originated by Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in, and since January 1970 also called Earth Day, is celebrated in many countries each year on April 22, including the U.S.

Who was the founder of Earth Day?

Gaylord Nelson, former US Senator, was the founder of Earth Day. He believed strongly that education is the key to changing people's attitudes about the environment and he devoted much of his energy to that challenge. He died at age 89 in July 2005.

Quote from Bill Clinton in 1995 regarding: THE PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM

"The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the highest honor given to civilians in the United States. Twenty-five years ago this year, Americans came together for the very first Earth Day. They came together because of one American - Gaylord Nelson. As the father of Earth Day, he inspired us to remember that the stewardship of our natural resources is the stewardship of the American Dream. He is the worthy heir of the tradition of Theodore Roosevelt, and I hope that Gaylord Nelson's shining example will illuminate all the debates in this city for years to come."

What is the role of chemistry in society and industry?

Chemistry is everywhere. It has been known to man from the day when coal was burned. As technology improves, the impact of chemistry on everyday life is increasing. Whether it's food, clothing, entertainment or relaxation, office work, industrial work, teaching, simple house chores, collective group work in hospitals, hotels, mills or libraries, chemistry is involved everywhere.

It certainly exceeds electricity; start with cooking, all the artificial fibers you wear and the dyes in all your clothing, the glues that hold things together, and the fuels that move you and the products you buy.

Word and Phrase Origins
Earth Day

Where and when did the names of the days originate?

The week of seven days was adopted in Rome somewhere about 400 AD, and spread into Europe, but had been recognized as a period of time long before that in the east. It was probably chosen to give one day each to each of the seven planets known in antiquity. In the southern countries of Europe, the days of the week were named after the gods of the Greeks and Romans. In the English language, as well as in the languages of some of the countries of northern Europe, the gods of the north have given their names to the days. Specifically, the days are as follows (OE=Old English): Monday, OE Monandaeg, Day of the Moon Tuesday, OE Tiwsdaeg, Day of Tiw (Germanic god of War) Wednesday,OE Wodnesdaeg, Day of Woden (Germanic chief God) Thursday, OE Thorsdaeg, Day of Thor (Germanic God of thunder) Friday, OE Freyjsdaeg, Day of Freyja (Germanic goddess of love) Saturday, OE Saturnsdaeg, Day of Saturn (Roman god of wisdom?) Sunday, OE Sunnandaeg, Day of the Sun

Earth Day

What color is the ozone layer?

Ozone has an absorption / emission band in the range of "blue", so that is how we'd see it with our eyes... were it thick enough to more than add a hint of blue to our sky. It very strongly absorbs in UV-B and more energetic, and over a narrow band in the far infrared. So had we different sorts of eyes... those would be the ozone layer's "primary colors". Beyond this, we visualize the ozone layer by using satellites and looking at the absorption / reflection / emission of UV light at different places above Earth's surface. The ozone is... BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!
Ozone as a gas is invisible over short light paths. It only has significant interaction with light in the UV-C, UV-B and far infrared ranges. Ozone as a liquid is described as light blue.
