Global Warming Trumpeted Throughout Snow Flurries!

Earth Day: Don't ignore climate issues

The Ithaca Journal

Apr 17, 2007

Ithaca will celebrate Earth Day this Sunday with the 10th annual celebration of the event at the Ithaca Farmers' Market pavilion. Earth Day is traditionally a celebration of our planet and a time for attention to be paid to environmental issues. This year, as global warming and climate change continue to make headlines and draw attention, Earth Day takes on more importance.

While snow piles up outside our windows, we may be hard-pressed to believe climate change is occurring, global temperatures are rising and the planet is on a crash course of serious change if greenhouse gas emissions are not reduced.
