Environment

We hear about this a lot and when we hear this word all of us have many things to say about it. But if we stop and think for a moment have we really been responsible towards the environment around us and is it really enough? Probably no. What each one of us is forgetting is that we are alive due to our environment and one day when the trees all over the world is gone, the human race would extinct.

It is sometimes really hard to see earth eroding away faster than we can mend it and I worry for my son’s future in our planet. I think it is our duty as a parent not to just give a good education to our kids but to leave behind a pleasant, flourishing planet as well. So it becomes the responsibility of each one of us to start today and do something about it. So how should we start? What should we do?

Should we plant trees only on environmental day is that enough? No that is not enough. We should do it as and when we get an opportunity. For example on our birthday we plant at least one tree each. With the population of 1.34 billion if each once of us follow this we can actually make this planet a beautiful place to live. Imagine when whole world does this? How beautiful the world would be. So it’s never too late to start today."

As seen in recent years, the environment is polluted by different human activities and it is portending detrimental consequences on not the only human race but also on the entire eco-system. Plethora of issues are risen because of this and several ways are suggested to counter the same.

Some of the biggest threats to the environment which can be reckoned are air pollution and waste. Gas emissions from factories and exhaust fumes from vehicles lead to global warming, which may have a devastating effect on the planet in the future. As the human population increases, we are also producing ever greater quantities of waste, which contaminates the earth and pollutes rivers and oceans. All these, in turn, affect human mass and other living being making them suffer and have a hard time surviving on the planet.

Out of all, Governments can take some steps to check the air pollution. They could introduce laws to limit emissions from factories or to force companies to use renewable energy from solar, wind or water power. They could also impose ‘green taxes’ on drivers and airline companies. In this way, people would be encouraged to use public transport and to take fewer flights abroad, therefore reducing emissions.

Individuals should also take responsibility for the impact they have on the environment. They can take public transport rather than driving, choose products with less packaging, and recycle as much as possible. Most supermarkets now provide reusable bags for shoppers as well as ‘banks’ for recycling glass, plastic, and paper in their car parks. By reusing and recycling, we can help to reduce waste.

All in all, I would comment that no matter how big or small, everyone has a part to play in this. Let’s begin with ‘I’.
