     Our Environment is an essential part of our life.  It is the source that allows us to breath, eat, live, play, work, enjoy, walk, hearing and quench our thirst.  Environment is our surroundings that includes water, air, locality, trees, lands, mountains, living organisms like animals, birds and insects, natural resources like minerals, fuels etc.  Quality of our life depends undoubtedly on the quality of our environment.

    Long ago, people lived abiding by the environment harmless to it.  Nowadays we are degrading the environment and indirectly harming ourselves.  Our ecological system balance is tampered with.

   Power of technology and science allowed exploit the environment for selfishly and indiscriminately and create these problems for everyone:

1.   Deforestation
2.   Depletion of underground water
3.   Extinction of some species, Loss of biodiversity
4.   Air pollution (greenhouse gases), drinking water pollution,
        river pollution by mixing poisonous chemicals
5.   Global warming
6.   Depletion of ozone layer
7.   Depletion of oil and gas reserves and natural resources like minerals.
8.  Great imbalance in population densities

    As we know the causes, the protective and preventive measures are obvious.  Save trees,  water, fuels.  Use efficient fuels, green technologies and spread awareness.  Stop pollution of air and water bodies.  Stop production of harmful plastics and polythenes.  Use ecofriendly materials only.  Population control and proper urbanization is very essential.

    We have to adapt to the environment instead of adapting the environment to our selfish needs.  We use regenerative and recycling mechanisms and use resources discriminatingly.  Otherwise, existence of humanity will become a question.  People will suffer with a lot of diseases.  Famines and cyclones will become more frequent. Rains will become even more untimely than now and damaging instead of helping agriculture.

    Action related to environment needs to be done together by governments of various countries and the United Nations Organization, at a global level.  Long term planning and monitoring of actions of private corporations is needed.  The young must be educated to live in harmony with environment rather than exploit it.
