The Trump administration plans to reopen the country’s national parks and other public lands in line with coronavirus guidelines, U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday, but gave no other details.
“We will begin to open our national parks and public lands for the American people to enjoy,” Trump announced at an Earth Day event at the White House.
Today is Earth Day and this is the fifty year anniversary of celebrating the first Earth Day. And out of this eventually came the Clean Air Act of 1970 and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Times have really changed as fifty years ago today, millions of people took to the streets to protest the air and water pollution that were making us sick. Today, millions are sheltering inside to try to stem the spread of a very different kind of sickness, Covid-19.
The greatest country in the world, The United States of America, with God’s grace and help will prevail over this invisible enemy. And hopefully soon, we will all have the opportunity to enjoy the parks and all the other beauties of our land.
