Environmental consciousness is the need of the hourAs human beings, it is our moral obligation to protect the environment and help the sustainable development of the planet so that it will be useful to future generations to make their living here.
Environmental pollution will become detrimental and will affect the long-term health and existence of animals, trees and human beings. So, we should not go for any deeds that will adversely affect the environment. We also need to take measures to protect the planet. We should think of reversing the damage already caused by our works.
This is a fact that the present condition of the environment is mainly due to the deeds of human beings only. We know, how much increase is there in greenhouse gases production which is very detrimental for the health of the environment. Added to this the greed of human beings is making the atmosphere to get concentrated on carbon dioxide. Do we know why this situation has arisen? We, the human beings are only responsible for deforestation which made this universe getting heated up more than usual. By cutting the trees we are helping to enhance the greenhouse effect. The food we eat and the air we breath is also polluted heavily these days. These will cause health problems and reproductive abilities of animals and human beings also.
Our traditional culture says that protect trees, they will protect you. But without understanding this fact we are cutting them and making the environment suffer from scarcity of oxygen. A tree planted today may not be helpful to you but definitely, it will help future generations. In the same fashion, the deeds we commit which are detrimental to the environment may not affect us but will make future generations suffer a lot.
So it is our responsibility to increase the environmental consciousness of the people, especially the children so that the mother earth will continue to be a place suitable to live for living organisms.
