Last Sunday was marked by an orgy of celebrations of Earth Day, the worldwide annual event intended to "to spark a revolution against environmental abuse."
Even the Bush administration had an Earth Day website, which stated, "Earth Day and every day is a time to act to protect our planet".

Nothing could be further from the truth.
