A Happy Pi Day Thought On What “The Environment” Is

The environment is everything that isn’t me.”
~Albert Einstein

Today is March 14th, Pi Day and the birthday of Albert Einstein, winner of The Nobel Prize in Physics 1921.

Pi Day celebrates the mathematical constant pi 3/14/2010; since 3, 1 and 4 are the first three decimal digits of pi. Pi is represented as the Greek letter π and is considered an infinite, irrational number, meaning it can go on forever without repeating.

Pi is 22 divided by 7 and some people like to actually divide that and trace pi as far as they can. For all you nerds like me out there and curious spectators piday.org have already traced pi to the one-millionth place for you. I guess you’ll have to find something else to do with the rest of your day now that that’s already been done!

You can also celebrate today by eating pie, but here at sofreshandsogreen.com you can also marinate on Einstein’s quote above. Talk of polar ice caps melting and Amazon forests being cut down can be so abstract to some.

Fun With Photoshop: Ha ha I put pi on his face!

I think maybe it’s easier for people to understand the need for an environmental consciousness if we can start to consider the environment as “everything that isn’t me.”

So that would include you neighborhood, your children your country, people who don’t look like you, animals that aren’t cute and the whole world and beyond. Just a thought…Happy Pi Day!
