Today is World Environment Day! The UN established the day in 1972, as a way to give a human face to environmental issues, empower people to play a part in sustainable development, and promote understanding and awareness of the issues. 

The theme for WED 2009 is "Your Planet Needs You-UNite to Combat Climate Change."
