Earth Day: 34 Years Later, What Went Wrong?

Mike Dombeck reviews the progress made in 34 years since the first Earth Day.

April 22nd is Earth Day."It's been 34 years since the first Earth Day was officially celebrated in the United States...So much has changed since then. The environmental benefits are all around us...But all is not wellnowhere are the problems more obvious than in the politicizing of the conservation ethic and the environment, especially with the current administration and its conservative supporters...On this Earth Day, the American public should not only celebrate Earth, they should ask what went awry in 34 years."
