Watch "Taking Action to Save Our Earth" - a Google Hangout with blogger Elianne Ramos and EDF campaign manager Lucia Oliva Hennelly tonight at 7PM EST.
 
This week marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, a day in which the global community pauses to celebrate our connection to our mother planet, Pachamama. 

Yet, as it has become increasingly clear, one day of the year is not enough. For many communities, Latinos included, the consequences of damage to the environment are something to be dealt with every day. These communities breathe the dirtiest air, live near the dirtiest of polluting power plants, and in the areas most threatened by climate change. 

The links between climate, environment and poverty are well documented, and are increasingly the subject of discussion among organizations that focus on environmental justice. This Tuesday, I’ll host a conversation examining these links, as well as the challenges, opportunities and potential solutions to today's most pressing environmental issues.  

My guests will be: 
• Kathleen Sutcliffe, +Earthjustice 
• Jose Gonzalez, +Latino Outdoors 
• Lucia Olivia Hennelly,  Environmental Defense Fund
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Elianne Ramos AKA ergeekgoddess. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Your receipt probably has BPA in it. How can you tell? Swipe a fingernail across it and look for the streak left behind. But we already know toxic chemicals are everywhere. Stop scratching receipts. Support our best chance for reform: www.edf.org/NTQ/

While the harrowing images of oil-soaked wildlife and beaches have subsided, science reveals that impacts of the spill are ongoing and significant. Meanwhile, BP continues to dodge accountability for their role in the disaster. 
Help us hold BP accountable for the 2010 oil spill. The environmental impacts of the disaster will continue on for years to come.

Yet again, President Barack Obama talked about the need for climate action in his State of the Union address.
