Today is Earth Day 2009. Founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1970, Earth Day is meant to increase awareness of environmental issues. This year's theme is "The Green Generation Campaign", which focuses on three key principles:
  • Ending our dependency on fossil fuels.
  • Encouraging individuals to adopt a green lifestyle.
  • Creating "green collar" jobs.
