TO CELEBRATE APRIL 22, 2001, AS EARTH DAY, TO RECOGNIZE THE IRREPLACEABLE VALUE OF OUR ENVIRONMENT AND OUR NATURAL RESOURCES, TO RECOGNIZE FORT JACKSON FOR ITS EFFORTS TO PRESERVE, PROTECT, AND ENHANCE THE ENVIRONMENT, AND TO SERVE AS A CALL TO ALL SOUTH CAROLINIANS TO BE RESPONSIBLE STEWARDS OF OUR ENVIRONMENT.
Whereas, Earth Day is an international event demonstrating concern and mobilizing support for the environment and promoting environmental responsibility; and
Whereas, Earth Day was first celebrated on April 22, 1970, and rallied more than twenty million Americans to become involved in environmental teachings; and
Whereas, this event is the largest grassroots movement in United States history and has continued to be celebrated annually to heighten the awareness of the mutual responsibility that all individuals worldwide have to act as trustees of the environment; and
Whereas, celebrating Earth Day is an occasion for all South Carolinians to be reminded of the inestimable value that our environment and natural resources provide to each of us on a daily basis and provides an opportunity to recognize their role in being good stewards of the environment; and
Whereas, Fort Jackson has been recognized by the Secretary of Defense and Secretary of the Army for excellence in environmental stewardship and natural resource conservation; and
Whereas, the Fort Jackson community has established an outstanding series of Earth Day 2001 activities designed to educate, entertain, and inspire support for environmental stewardship. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, celebrate April 22, 2001, as Earth Day to recognize the irreplaceable value of our environment and our natural resources, to recognize Fort Jackson for its efforts to preserve, protect, and enhance the environment, and to serve as a call to all South Carolinians to be responsible stewards of our environment.
