Happy Earth Day!

Today's the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. Here's a short video on its history:

No mention of first Earth Day master of ceremonies Ira Samuel Einhorn or that Vladimir Lenin was born on this day 22 April 1870?

So, let me get this right...because Einhorn murders someone in 1977, his involvement in an event 7 years earlier discredits everyone else who was involved and the cause they are involved in? Is that about it?

And if you must know, it's 4/22 because a) 4/20 is already taken - stoners heart Hitler! and b) April 22 is also the birthday of Julius Sterling Morton, the founder of Arbor Day.

Coincidentally, actor Eddie Albert was ALSO at the first Earth Day and even spoke. He was also born on April 22. Holy Shit! How deep does this conspiracy go?
