A short essay on Climate Change / Environment Pollution/ Global Warming
All the big leaders have congregated at Paris this time to attend world Summit on Climate Change/ Global Warming. They have expressed their genuine concerned over the climate change and resultant global warming that has caused a potential threat to human existence on this Green and beautiful planet. Great calamities are striking one part or the other of the earth. The Pollution level of some places has increased many times causing a severe blow at the health of the people.
Incessant rains ( breaking previous years’ records ), flash floods, land sliding etc are the products of this excessive tempering with nature. India is suffering more due to this grave problem. Some facts reveal that life is very tough in India due to excessive pollution. In the capital of the country the level of pollution is 10 times the previous year.
Faridabad has been called the most polluted district of the world. When asked, the concerned authority replied that this is because of construction of the GT Roads in the district. Sometime ago if you were passing through Punjab and Haryana, you must have felt suffocated and eye-burn. It was because the farmers had burned the remains of paddy in their fields.
Though there is the High Court Ruling that bars them from burning the stubble of the crops, the farmers did that with impunity. The authorities who were expected to take action did nothing but to curse them. PM Modi also made the mention of this incident in his programme Mann ki baat. At Diwali, we all burst crackers making environment several times polluted. We didn’t think about the mute animals and the helpless old and sick people.
The whole world is suffering from Development mania. Construction works are going on at the cost of forests. Industries are being set up at the cost of fresh air. The problem is that we are thinking only for ourselves. We have resolved to ensure that the earth must die with us. We don’t want to leave it for our coming generations.
Developed countries are cursing developing countries and vice versa. But both the developed and developing countries are responsible for this miserable condition. Instead of leveling charges against each other, we all must take blames and work prudently to protect nature and thus this earth of ours.
