Earth Day? ‘It’s sort of like Christmas’
Monday (April 22) was Earth Day, and recognition and celebrations of the day — and week — have begun here on campus and elsewhere. On Sunday, UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. John Katers and Prof. Emeritus Michael Kraft helped offer some context for the celebration, sitting down for an interview with “CW 14 Focus” host (and former University Communication staffer) Robert Hornacek. “Having an Earth Week or an Earth Day is important in part to remind people. It’s sort of like Christmas,” Kraft said. “I’d kind of like it to be an ongoing activity because the problems don’t occur on one day a year. The problems are ongoing.” Check out the half-hour program online.
