Congratulations to the organizers of Earth Day Fresno. Many of the offerings provided a way to do important work beyond the day itself.
A few examples: create carbon-production fees to motivate clean-energy use, drive renewable-energy vehicles, use bicycles instead of cars, employ energy more efficiently at home and work, plant trees, recycle, support preservation of wildlife, and revitalize and redesign urban life to combat sprawl.
The organizers made Earth Day Fresno meaningful – a springboard, not just a day of music, food, and games.
