CEI Celebrates Earth Day

Free Markets Help Advance Environmental Quality

Washington,
D.C., April 18, 2008—On Tuesday,
April 22, environmentalists will gather in different locations around the world
to observe Earth Day, originally a 1970 teach-in on environmental issues. The sustained
popularity of Earth Day events reflects the desire of people everywhere for
clean air, clean water, wildlife habitat and other environmental benefits.

But instead of a Great Society era, command-and-control
approach to environment issues, the Competitive Enterprise Institute observes
Earth Day by publicizing the real catalyst for improvements in environmental
quality over the past three decades: the institutions of a free society. For
almost a quarter century, CEI has worked to show how free markets and limited
government can continue to create a healthier, cleaner world.
