Hello friends, I wish to speak on the topic
of relevance to all of us in the 21st century.
Our Environment is a very essential
part of our life. It is the main source for us to live
in and get food from, to eat, play, work, enjoy, walk, breath,
hear or drink. The environment is basically the atmosphere, and surrounding geographical area. We know very well that quality
of our life depends on our environment.
Let us question ourselves, who spoils
the environment ?
Long ago, people lived adapting themselves to the environment
and could not harm the environment. In these days we are
harming and degrading the environment, and thus indirectly harming
ourselves. Power of the technology and science has enabled the man to
exploit the environment for selfish and indiscriminate use. This
is creating problems for everyone.
and science has side effects that is spoiling the clean environment directly or
indirectly, when we use the machines, vehicles, gadgets etc. Centuries

The causes of worry are:
2. Growth of population and Rapid
3. Loss of biodiversity
4. Air pollution (greenhouse gases),

materials. Use of non-biodegradable materials in daily
5. Global warming and Depletion

6. Depletion of underground

manufacturing and domestic product usage processes to the
environment. We must use reducible, reusable, regenerative and
recyclable techniques. The governments of various countries and
the United Nations Organization must take up actions at a global level.
many voluntary organizations around the world which propagate clean environment,
green earth, save earth, save power, conserve power concepts. However,
some of these ideas are difficult to
implement as they reduce the convenience of people, make it more difficult for
the industries, and these are more expensive to realize.
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.
Nowadays, all children are aware of the major issues in the environment.
There are many attempts to build environment friendly houses, buildings,
vehicles and so on. There are many methods that reuse, reduce, and
recycle available materials and resources. These are getting more
Each of us has a role
and responsibility to protect our environment. Only that saves our
race on the Earth after centuries. It is a difficult target to
