45 years ago, in April 1970, the newspapers carried stories of U.S. and South Vietnamese troops moving into Cambodia, the ill-fated flight of Apollo 13, and the introduction of a new car, the AMC Gremlin. The first Earth Day also made the papers that month, and 45 years later it is still in the news. In 1970, the focus was on air and water pollution and litter. But Judith Enck, the Environmental Protection Agency’s Administrator for Region 2, which includes New York and New Jersey, says Earth Day has evolved over the years.
