Gaylord Nelson - BAO Bad Ass Legend

‎Here is to Gaylord Nelson, a deserving BAO Bad Ass Legend, who as a U.S. Senator established the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970.  Inspired by the energy of anti-war activists, he took it upon himself to make environmental protection part of the national agenda.  Earth Day is now a global event raising the awareness of environmental protection issues for hundreds of millions of people each year.  If that is not bad ass enough, also in 1970 Gaylord called for Congressional hearings on the safety of oral contraception and for the first time forced the pharmaceutical companies to disclose a drug’s side-effect information in its packaging.
