Sky scrapers have replaced the trees
Lakes had died and deserts have bloomed
Hazy smog has killed the airing
The end is near
The miracle planet of life is dying
So is life …
Homo sapiens ,one of the most powerful and magnificent creation of nature has also become the greatest threat to its own creator, Mother earth. No other creature can ever even think of damaging its own habitat . A frog in pond never drinks up the pond! We have caused a major survival threat not only to our fellow creatures but also to ourselves.
From plastic brushes to polluting automobiles ,each action of ours is speeding up the process of sixth mass extinction. With immense focus on economic growth and the resultant industrialisation and urbanisation ,we turned a blind eye on the importance of sustainability. We kept forgetting that we are the children of the earth and have borrowed it from our younger generation. This has led to a situation popularly termed as the tragedy of commons which illustrates how in a shared resource system individual users acting independently according to their own self interest behave contrary to the common good of all users by depleting or spoilling that resource through their collective action.
“What we are doing to the forest of the world is reflection of what we ae doing to ourselves and to one another “
Just like the butterfly effect each growing industry poisoned the air and water with pollutants.The marine animals started dying and the earth heated up. Added to it was the plastic menace . If we observe carefully we shall realize that most of the things we use whether it be pens or cars contains plastic in it. As we cleared forests and hunted down animals never did we realize that we were digging our own grave.
Soon earth warmed up indicating that it was all beyond its maximum carrying capacity. Frequent droughts indicated its thirst and the disasters reflected it’s wrath. This acted as a wake up call which made us realize that we have to either act or perish. Thus started the idea of going green with climate change and ozone layer depletion served as the warning signals.
