Around the world companies are finding new ways to legally destroy irreplaceable ecosystemsto make way for mining projects, motorways and fossil fuel pipelines. Now the EU wants to facilitate companies’ environmental destruction by introducing so-called “biodiversity offsetting”.
Biodiversity offsetting is the promise by companies to replace nature destroyed and lost in one place with nature somewhere else. But it pays little attention to unique ecosystems or to the importance of wildlife and clean water for local people.
In the global south, biodiversity offsetting has already opened the door to companies legally destroying rainforests and grabbing land from local communities.
Everywhere people ask: What can I actually do to reduce waste? The answer is as simple as it is disconcerting: we can, each of us, work to put our own inner house in order. The guidance we need for this work..... can be found in the traditional wisdom of mankind.
Knowingly or unknowingly we waste so many things like water, food, energy, etc. Millions of tonnes off solid waste like metals, chemicals, paper, plastics is created every year.
The waste is increasing due to:
* Increase in level standard of people and abrupt use of modern appliances.
* Modern marketing concepts motivate people to buy more.
* Widespread use of disposable and throw away domestic products
Waste damages the environment. If dumped in the open, it provides home to disease carrying species. Burning of waste can cause air pollution. Dumping at sea, pollutes the sea. Rotting rubbish seeps in to the ground and damages the soil.
There is no way of getting rid of waste that does not harm the environment in some way.But, all rubbish must be put somewhere. So more land is needed for waste site.
Some ways to minimise waste:
* Optimum use of products and equipment. e.g. washing machine or dish washer should be used when it is fully loaded.
* Lights and fans should be switched off when not in use.
* Water taps should be closed properly.
* Always try and use products made of recycled materials. It will help to eliminate a substantial part of the waste we currently generate
Population of world is increasing continuously. The demands of human being for food, water, shelter and basic commodities are also rising continuously. Recently population of India has crossed 120 Crores mark.
To cope up with the demands of world's population, it is seen that industries are also growing.
This growth in industries has resulted in increase in pollution on our mother EARTH-"VASUNDHARA"
THERE IS ONE PRINCIPLE OF UNIVERSE. WHAT WE GIVE TO UNIVERSE THE UNIVERSE WILL GIVE IT IN DOUBLE AMOUNT TO US.NOWADAYS WE ARE GIVING GASES LIKE C H 4 ; CO2; AMMONIA BY VIRTUE OF VARIOUS FATORIES.SO THE UNIVERSE IS GIVING IT BACK TO US BY VIRTUE OF ULTRAVIOLET RAYS.THEN GREEN HOUSE EFFECT AND GLOBAL WARMING AND FINALLY NATURE CYCLE IS TOTALLY DISTURBED.NATURE WILL GIVE UNEVEN RAINY SEASON FLOODS AND DIFFERENT NATURAL CALAMITIES IN RETURN.OUR GOVERNMENT AND CLIMATE SCIENTIST CAN
NOT DO ANYTHING IN THIS REGARD.BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE ANY SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM.
WHY WE CAN NOT RESIST NATURAL CALAMITIES WHICH IS REACTION OF NATURE TO ALL BAD KARM WE ARE DOING.
WHEN WE HAVE PROBLEMS THEN WE TRY TO SOLVE IT.BUT ALWAYS TRY THAT THERE SHOULD NOT BE ANY PROBLEM FOREVER.
