The Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) once again did a wonderful job of organizing Earth Day activities for Los Alamos.
Earth Day is a special day that lets us get together as a community to celebrate how much we value a healthy, sustainable environment, and to recognize the many things we are already doing to preserve and enhance the environment for ourselves and our children.
But now that Earth Day is over, we need to be aware that this is a continuing struggle. Population increases will continue to put pressure on our open areas.
It will always be cheaper for industry to release pollutants to the environment rather than to capture and dispose of them, despite the costs this imposes on society as a whole.
The critical role of energy for our society means we will continue to burn coal with its air pollution and enhancement of global climate change and to drill for oil and gas in more and more sensitive areas unless we make major investments in infrastructure for renewable energy.
Passage and enforcement of laws and regulations to prevent continuing degradation of our earth is only possible if those of us who want our children to inherit as good a world to live in as the one we had stay aware and involved.
