Today is Earth Day – and no better day to revisit Carl Sagan‘s mesmerising and humbling perspective on the famous “pale blue dot” photograph of our planet. I find myself coming back to this time and time again – just to remind myself of what really matters. If you do one thing for Earth Day, take three minutes to watch it.
Despite the glorious weather, I’m heading indoors to a screening by UCD’s Earth Institute of Watermark, a film by director Jennifer Baichwal and photographer Edward Burtynsky examining our complex relationship with the water that makes this planet habitable. Looks impressive.
Wherever on the pale blue dot you are, have a nice Earth Day.
