Origins and History
Over the years Earth Day supported the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency and contributed to the passage of the Clean Air Act, the Water Quality Improvement Act, the Endangered Species Act and several other environmental laws.
While Earth Day was started in the United state,s it has grown into a global holiday. In the year 2000, over 200 million people participated in 141 countries. In more recent times, the focus of Earth Day has shifted to combating global warming. Last year, 120 countries signed the Paris Agreement, a climate protection treaty between United Nations countries. It was the first major step in combating global warming as an entire planet. According to Earth Day Network, more than a billion people across the globe participate in Earth Day Activities.
