Happy Earth Day… and Lenin Day


Question: What do Earth Day and Vladimir Lenin’s birthday have in common? Answer: they both reoccur every year on April 22. Coincidence?

How about this? The first Earth Day took place April 22, 1970. The centennial of Lenin’s birth took place April 22, 1970. Needless to say, the Lenin centenary was a huge deal to the communist movement, which goes bonkers over dates and memorials to its icons.

Here are more striking similarities: Vladimir Lenin and the communist and environmental movements all remonstrated against capitalism, profits, corporations, industry, free markets, the West.

Here’s another: When the communist movement imploded in the late 1980s, many of its disciples just happened to join… yep, you guessed it: the environmental movement.

Let’s back up and start from the beginning.

In its January 1970 issue, Life Magazine wrote that, “Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….”

The New York Times urged action to “save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.”

Scientific journals subscribed to similar theories. In Environment, Washington University biologist Barry Commoner penned, “We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation.”
