Our Environment is a
very essential part of our life. It is the source for us to live
in and to eat, play, work, enjoy, walk, breath, hear or drink. The
environment is basically our the atmosphere, and surrounding
geographical area. The quality of our life depends a lot on our
Long ago, people lived adapting themselves to the environment and did
not harm the environment. In these days we are harming and
degrading the environment and indirectly harming ourselves.
Power of the technology
and science has enabled the man to exploit the use of environment for selfish
and indiscriminate use and create a problem for everyone. The causes are:
2. Growth of population and Rapid urbanization
3. Loss of biodiversity
4. Air pollution (greenhouse gases), drinking water pollution, river
pollution by mixing poisonous chemicals, plastics etc.
5. Global warming and Depletion of ozone layer
6. Depletion of underground water, oil and gas reserves and natural
resources like minerals.
We have to adapt to the
environment and use regenerative and recycling
methods. Otherwise, people may suffer from diseases. Famines and
cyclones may occur. Rains may fall untimely and damaging.
Action related to our 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. Each of us has to protect our environment.
