Earth Day 1970 was irrefutable evidence that the American people understood the environmental threat and wanted action to resolve it.

Ted Danson, actor

Bruce Sterling, writer

I reflect back 35 years ago, and look how far we have come in America with our environmental policy to improve the conditions of our air and water, and we have had some real successes.

Elon Musk, entrepreneur

The reality is gas prices should be much more expensive then they are because we're not incorporating the true damage to the environment and the hidden costs of mining oil and transporting it to the U.S. Whenever you have an unpriced externality, you have a bit of a market failure, to the degree that eternality remains unpriced.
