We have been celebrating Earth Day since 1970, when U.S. Sen. Gaylord Nelson realized the importance of environmental awareness and education and initiated an environmental teach-in day that in turn generated the Earth Day we know today, as well as the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts.

This year, the world will celebrate Earth Day on April 22. Earth Day is an opportunity to rethink our commitment to energy conservation. The 21st Theater Sustainment Command developed its energy discipline program in 2014. The focus of the program this year is to conduct energy assessments during tactical operations and training.
