Is Earth Day Dead?

Earlier this week we sent an email to our list asking: Is Earth Day dead?  Some of you found it quite provocative – but the question stands.  In some ways, Earth Day is dead: every day is Earth Day.  And yet, as issues around sustainability and organic food have moved more and more into the mainstream, it has gotten harder to bring urgency and focus to saving our Earth.

What do you think?  Is Earth Day dead?  Are there ways we can make it meaningful again, after more than 40 years? We’ll be picking a handful of the best responses and sharing them widely.  You can leave a comment here on our website, or you can use the twitter hashtag #earthdayisdead. But whatever you do, let’s get a real discussion going about our Earth – and how to save it.

Our five favorite responses will get a free book – the recently published Chasing Chiles (you can read about it here, and you might have seen it in the New York Times here).
