Life on planet EARTH: Perform or Perish!

We are living in the times when everything is available to us at our beck and call, whether we want to eat, read, talk, sing, dance, walk, jump, fly or even sleep. Technology has made it all this and more easily accessible to us at the click of a button. We consistently go on replenishing things of our daily life and most of our time, energy, money, and other resources are spent on this chore.

Everything is available to us so easily and in abundance, we never think what will happen when it is not available to us. By no stretch of the imagination, we can imagine this scenario, we happily go on deploying our resources. Today everything is centered around human aspirations which are growing leaps and bounds.

Our ancestors worked really very hard to make the ends meet and access even basic things in life. The simplicity of life is waning. It’s all about amassing wealth and luxuries, though at the cost of earth’s natural resources. Have you ever thought that what will happen when the energy sources which make the world move start depleting?

We are already stretchi

ng many of our natural resources to their limits, and probably we are he

ading towards times of catastrophic squeeze of these resources…when? Can’t say, but for sure!

From the stone age to the highly industrial age, our planet earth has seen it all. The

In the race for development, we have forgotten that resources such as water, air, minerals, forests, oils, etc. are available in limited quantities. There is a need to conserve these natural resources which are becoming scarce with the passage of time.

“Environment is the biggest treasure which we humans have inherited, hence it is our moral duty to preserve it, take care of it and love it so that our future generations inherit it or else we would face extinction like dinosaurs.”
- Subhajit Mukherji, Environmentalist

Earlier human life was very close to nature, with the establishment of large and heavy industries after the Industrial Revolution, heavy exploitation of nature started taking place because of which earth’s natural resources came under heavy pressure. Still, no one bothered to think about it, till earth started experiencing “Climate Change”. There is a gross violation of the rules of nature, indicates IPCC’s report on climate change.

Are we leaving planet earth liveable for our future generations,

Now we probably don’t even have a future anymore? Because that future was sold so that a small number of people could make unimaginable amounts of money.”
- Greta Thunberg, Student & Environment Activist

The problem is growing at alarming proportions due to the over-consumption of natural resources. If this pattern of energy usage continues with the overutilization of fossil fuels, the day is not far when our future generations may not inherit them.

The time to think about it is NOW!

Lifelike this is unimaginable, but we need to imagine. The on-going developmental activities world over have created environment-related problems on earth as the usage exceeds the speed of their natural replenishment. Increasing pollution, global warming, industrialization, and other processes have accentuated the depletion of natural resources.
