Dear friends, I wish to talk on "environmental pollution" which has taken the shape of monster attacking our and our Earth.
Pollution means mixing some impurities or
waste into a pure substance. Environmental pollution means adulteration of natural resources
by deliberate human activities. Presence of unwanted substances in a location is also pollution.
Due to pollution, environment is getting fast
degraded. Our planet's ecosystem and its cycle
is affected. International voluntary organizations and UNO are monitoring and raising alarms. In India a central government
organization and a pollution control board in each state are to control pollution.
There are many kinds of pollution. They are air, water,
land, noise and light pollutions. It is probably impossible to eliminate
air pollution. To mitigate the risks, we may use CNG, Bio-diesel (green
diesel), electric, solar vehicles, bicycles or public transport. We must
plant more trees. Water bodies are polluted by chemicals, waste water,
plastics, oils, paints, and by the dissolution of gases to which water is exposed to. Many species are contracting diseases and dying due to impure water and air.
Due to rains some nutrients from farming
lands get washed away. Due to environmental pollution or nuclear radiation, the
soil may get deficient. Plants are affected. Improper use of pesticides and fertilizers cause soil pollution.
All of us are required to work to reduce pollution and mitigate the hazards
due to pollution. I hope all of you will
agree and make a vow in favour of it. It is our social responsibility and obligation.
Pollute and Perish or, Conserve and Flourish !! -- Its your choice !
Thanks for listening to me attentively and silently.
