Meet ‘Mr. Earth Day,’ the Man Who Helped Organize the Annual Observance
Nearly 50 years after 20 million Americans participated in the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, more than 190 countries mark the annual day for raising awareness of environmental causes. And the stakes only grow as the years go by. Though Earth Day has been dogged by rumors that it was founded by a murderer and as communist propaganda, the truth is much more straightforward — but no less fascinating. TIME spoke to Denis Hayes, a real organizer of the first Earth Day, dubbed “Mr. Earth Day” by the magazine in 1999. Hayes is now the president of the Bullitt Foundation, which doles out grants to environmen...

EPA ’s Latest Asbestos Regulation Falls Short of Full Ban
The Environmental Protection Agency issued a new regulation on Wednesday that will make it tougher to domestically manufacture, import or sell products made with asbestos, the toxic mineral that causes mesothelioma and other diseases. The regulation closes a loophole in the partial ban of asbestos that was legislated almost 30 years ago. It will strengthen the EPA’s ability to review and prohibit the use of a long list of asbestos products that are not banned but have been long abandoned by the industry. The ruling is part of a legislative process that requires the EPA to review its regulation of asbestos under the...

ALBANY, N.Y.
