“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature-the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”
Every year on April 22nd, Earth Day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970.
As earth day represents the support for environmental protection and the main aim of this indispensable day is to raise awareness on the negative impact of the actions that mankind has on this environment and earth as a whole.
This year we are celebrating ‘Golden Jubilee’ of Earth Day with a new theme of climate action which is one of the biggest challenges to the future of humanity and the life-support systems that make our world good to live in.
If we squiz at climate change, it is correlated to global warming, pollution, and environmental destruction. These environmental issues have not come into the picture from the past few years, but these issues have started emerging long back. If we talk of ancient times, that time most of the people were not even aware of these environmental issues, & this is the reason now the situation has become so drastic. Now, these issues have affected the environment at an alarming rate.
Now talking about the present, various disasters like the earthquake in various countries and forest fire in countries like Australia have been the major issues related to environmental destruction. This has led to the death of thousands of species and also leads to a big threat to humankind. If we see from 2-3 years, pollution is increasing day by day, and our atmosphere gets polluted every second. Carbon dioxide and the emission of other gases from automobiles pollute the atmosphere, the improper disposal of wastes and other particles from an industry increase the pollution every day, & that finally damages our mother earth.
Comprehending the gravity of the situation, the government of various countries has taken preventive measures as much as they can and are onto a mission of saving this mother earth by running various campaigns, etc.
However, in recent days because of the lockdown in the countries due to the COVID-19 pandemic a steep decline has been observed in the pollution. And according to the environmentalists, if this condition is maintained, our mother earth will soon heal. It’s only the people themselves and the “awareness” that have a major role to play in sensitizing other people around the world to think seriously about the environmental issues and make them understand the need of the hour. Now, this is the high time we all need to work together to protect the environment to make it a healthier place to live.
