Earth Day more urgent today than ever before

Statement of Alderman Cavalier Johnson April 22, 2019

I am marking Earth Day (today) by doing everything I can to put the care and conservation of our physical environment at the top of the priority list and as a top goal. This is actually something I try to do every day and in every endeavor!

I know that without action and constant, steady determination, the earth we leave for our children and grandchildren will not be the clean and stable home they deserve. Without our planet’s water, air, land and resources, their lives will be fraught with constant worry and disarray. Threats to food, the oceans, public health and the overall stability of the global community will be overwhelming.

But each Earth Day reminds us that we have the power to work within our community and more broadly to positively impact our environment and to help make lasting change that can leave the air, water and land better for our children and grandchildren.

That’s why I celebrate Earth Day and that’s what I’m thinking about today.
