Anticipating Scott Walker's 4/22/16 Earth Day activities

[Updated] Based on his Earth Day and environmental track records, including:

* Gov. Walker's official website offers just one minimal Earth Day mention:

Friday, April 20, 2012 - Press Release
MADISON – Governor Walker today issued a proclamation for Earth Day and announced that the Executive Residence will also undergo a shoreline restoration thanks to the help of a citizens’ group.  The citizen’s group restoration project will help boost wildlife habitat and water quality.   
There were no further references to Earth Day in the rest of the 13-paragraph news release.

*  His Department of Natural Resources announcement of staff layoffs on Earth Day, 2015.

*  The unresponsive 'clean-up-your campsite' comment, on video, to a seven-year-boy last year who asked what Walker was doing about climate change. Walker skedaddling from the scene after giving the kid a perfunctory handshake is priceless.

*  His well-known hostility to public interest water management and clean air in favor of corporate agendas.

So because we know that these people- - 
Smoke stacks from a factory.
- - are calling the shots, don't be surprised - - though Earth Day was created by Gaylord Nelson a former Wisconsin Governor - - if Walker's Earth Day activities look like this:

Scott Walker can't do Earth Day, because his bosses have told him to make every day a KOCH Day!
