Preserve Environment

By Rhea_2001 Feb 24, 2014 400 Words
The environment means the natural surroundings that we live in. This includes the trees, the plants, animals, mountains, rivers, oceans, sky, etc. The nature around us is the very essence of our survival and sustenance. Therefore it is the responsibility of every citizen of the world to preserve the environment and keep it safe as there are efforts to destruct it from many sources. Our earth abounds in natural resources and therefore we have no right to destroy them. Man does not realize that his attitude towards nature will one day make him pay a very heavy price. Man continues to pollute the environment. There is an increase in air pollution because of the growing number of vehicle on roads. The rivers are polluted because factories and houses throw their waste material into the river. Rivers are getting choked with silt, sewage and other pollutants. Factories processing chemical emit poisonous gases which are becoming a health hazard. Although these industries are doing a great service to mankind, we are also paying a heavy price for this service. We have also destroyed ozone layer partly.

We are encroaching on deserts, forests, lakes, rivers, etc. Forests are being razed. Trees are being cut. The vanishing of trees is reducing the oxygen content in the atmosphere and the air is rich in carbon dioxide which is harmful for us. This denuding of forests is steadily eroding the soil too. Recently we witnessed the Gulf War. Besides great loss to life and property, the environment was badly affected. Oil wells were on fire continuously tor many days thus polluting the air. Thousands of oil wells were blown up and oil spilt into the sea which endangered marine life. The world was shocked at the “black snow” which fell in various parts of the world that winter. We also suffer the effect of “acid rain” which is rain water mixed with the effect of various poisonous gases. But now man is realizing the need to preserve the vital ingredients of nature. Our government has banned the killing of wildlife and felling of trees. Heavy fines have the killing of wildlife and felling of trees. Heavy fines have to be paid by those who commit these “crimes”. It is a crime to interfere with nature because no man has the right to destroy this beautiful universe and make it barren for the coming generations.
