sun day

Though not as enduring as the other observance conceived and coordinated by Denis Hayes, Earth Day in 1970, this day in 1978 was proclaimed as Sun Day by US president Jimmy Carter, with international events staged around the world to advocate and promote solar power and prompt conversations about alternative sources of energy. If only we had sustained that level of enthusiasm, just imagine how much better our planet could be. We ought to revitalise this holiday and help us get back on the right trajectory.
