EVS or Environmental Studies was a compulsory subject in school as in those days the government thought that it’s important that young people the future of India value the environment and try to save it. However, we bring too many pollutants and very little environment friendly technology.
SOIL and SURROUNDINGS
Is MCGM the only one to be blamed for the floods in Mumbai? Aren’t authorities giving approvals for construction on marshy land? Aren’t we replenishing our society’s soil every year? Aren’t the development boards using too much mechanically broken stone pieces? Isn’t toxic waste guttered out in the Mithi River? Can all of this be Restored? Think about it! I don’t believe in giving scientific details to give you some proof as you all already know it or have observed, I am giving a piece of my mind.
Mafia’s in metro cities buy the mangrove land at a dirt cheap price rate which is extremely low. As low as Rs 10/- to 100/- per square feet. These gangs help these owners to take off the Mangroves in a year or two whilst releasing toxic waste which harm the mangroves or block water so the plants die. The owner then approaches the authority to take the land out of the Forest Act and they start construction and sell homes at crores of rupees (Rs 1 Crore = Rs 10 Million).
This has to stop!
Air and Water
Don’t you feel that the air quality is degrading and many people are having breathing problems. Cancer may be prevented by reducing the pollutants in air, water and food but people have no choice as one cannot live life without driving a car just for a 200 meter length. People will still release waste in the natural water resources and blame the government for not cleaning it. Stop This! The People elect a representative and the people are the Government, if our representative cannot do that then its our job, Okay!
Not Nuclear because that’s in a very high control. But I would blame the government for taking off a law which was very crucial for the health of the public.
I was watching parliament session on TV and the BJP minister tabled a bill saying that mobile radiation shouldn’t be curbed as we have no proof whether its harming the health and well being and that research cannot be proof. I know now that 2 months after Reliance Jio came with Big Bang. So you changed laws for party funding? Where ever there is a mobile tower there is an increase in Cancer Patients. Isn’t that data enough?
Sound Pollution is a very important pollutant which gets ignored. The harm it causes has long term effects and cannot be corrected. My Maternal Grandfather used to work in Air India as an Aircraft Engineer, he was constantly surrounded by noise. He started getting hearing problems at the age of 60. He’s 82 now. Guess the hearing? It’s a scream equal to a whisper.
Thankfully the court gave a judgment restricting decibel levels especially during festivals.
If I have missed out something then please comment below and share a piece of your mind too. We are are the people of our lovely planet and we should save it.
Pollution is not a not a Co-Incidence to the end of the World. It is man made so as is the End of the World.
Save Earth! Save All of Us!
