The Reason To Celebrate Earth Day

Earth Day is celebrated to raise public awareness about the environment and mark the annual anniversary of the first Earth Day.  

Climate change is caused by human activities such as burning fossil fuels, which emit heat-trapping carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere that raise global temperatures and disrupt weather patterns. The impacts of climate change around the world include extreme weather events such as massive floods and intense wildfires.

In 2021, thousands of scientists warned that ignoring climate change will yield "untold suffering" for humanity.
