A 22-year-old has raised $30M to fund his idea behind cleaning up plastic in the ocean

Boyan Slat's "Ocean Cleanup" machine is projected to clean 50% of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, one of the most polluted areas of ocean, in five years. The first system will be deployed in 2018.

Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22. Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day events in more than 193 countries are now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network.

On Earth Day 2016, the landmark Paris Agreement was signed by the United States, China, and some 120 other countries. This signing satisfied a key requirement for the entry into force of the historic draft climate protection treaty adopted by consensus of the 195 nations present at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris.

In 1969 at a UNESCO Conference in San Francisco, peace activist John McConnell proposed a day to honor the Earth and the concept of peace, to first be celebrated on March 21, 1970, the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. This day of nature's equipoise was later sanctioned in a proclamation written by McConnell and signed by Secretary General U Thant at the United Nations. A month later a separate Earth Day was founded by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in first held on April 22, 1970. Nelson was later awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom award in recognition of his work. While this April 22 Earth Day was focused on the United States, an organization launched by Denis Hayes, who was the original national coordinator in 1970, took it international in 1990 and organized events in 141 nations.

The Canadian organization Tiny Kittens has a bunch of new occupants now!

They go into feral colonies of cats, and trap and treat the cats the capture.  Any that can be socialized are, and then they are adopted out.   Those that are too feral, are taken to a vet and spayed and neutered, and then released back into their colony, so they can't increase the numbers.

Last week they captured three pregnant cats, and they are working to socialize them, and give them a safe place to have their litters.

As of today, all the cats have given birth, and there are 12 new kittens that will be spayed and neutered and then adopted out.
