World Environment Day 2019: Time to move beyond quotes, FB posts on conserving nature, and ACT
New Delhi, June 04: Environment day quotes, intellectual debates on conserving the planet and social media posts to support 'save earth' campaigns are all fine, but today the pressing need is to act on it. Unless we collectively act today, we will lose our planet. Collectively is the most important word here, individually many would be doing what they can, but need of the hour is a collective and concerted effort with an clear aim to save our planet.
Nature is undoubtedly God's greatest gift to the mankind. The air that we breathe, the food we eat and water we drink, all these come from nature. Even when we want to escape from humdrum of daily life, we like going to mountains, forests or in general closer to nature.
The very fact that we are using the expression 'closer to nature' makes it clear that we have, over the years, come far from it. Surrounded by concrete jungle, we often forget that life would not have been possible on earth without nature which allows biological processes to thrive.
World Environment Day is a campaign established to bring some positive environmental changes all over the world to make life better and more natural. Environmental issues are big issues now-a-days to which everyone must be aware and give their positive efforts to solve such issues.
Sooner or later, we will have to recognize that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without humans.
