Earth Day

Yesterday (April 22) was Earth Day.
It started out in the US where the first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970. Now, 35 years later, it is celebrated all around the Globe. However, I didn't even see a single mention in the local newspapers (as far as I know).

I would like to congratulate TV3’s Mr Green, journalist Karam Singh Walia for being one of the winners of this year's Maulidur Rasul award. Read the Star report

Several members of the parliament claimed that they had to turn to him "to solve environmental problems in their constituencies". Read the Bernama report.

Born and raised in Teluk Intan, Perak, Karam joined TV3 in 1995 as an environmental journalist and as they say, the rest is history.
Some notable coverages:
- Cameron Highlands in October 2000
- Bukit Gasing,Petaling Jaya in 2002

I can't remember the rest..

Really admire this guy.

Did not know that either, nobody mentioned here in UK, possibly too near to St Georges day in England so perhaps that caused the lack of celebrations

I guess the Environment is not on the top of the list of people right now.
