Did This Photo Start The Environmental Movement?

It has been said that the pictures taken on Christmas Eve forty years ago created the environmental movement, that for the first time people really could see that we really were all together on one little boat floating in space. This was the first, the black and white shot. Historian Christopher Riley writes in the BBC that Frank Borman saw it: "Oh, my God! Look at that picture over there!" Then they ran for the colour film.
