We The “Selfish Humans”!
Selfish Humans Well, I’m not gonna tell you anything new but we all need to focus on it and seriously take some actions on it as soon as possible. It’s funny that we humans are so busy in the development of mankind that we have forgotten that we share this planet with other creatures too! And somewhere we need to understand this is causing way many problems than we can imagine. The planet is in great danger including us in it. As “Marlee Mathin” said, “The earth does not belong to us: we belong to the earth”.
Today we have reached to the point that we need to first save the planet so that we can save “ourselves”. We have become so selfish and greedy! We have forgotten that when we take something we even need to give something back like returning the favour So that there can be a balance. We have just taken everything from the mother earth but never thought of giving it back what it needs. Man has been using and misusing natural resources up to the limit.Now we are tearing up remote corners of the planet looking for crude oil and coal, and our forests and wild animals are disappearing our environment is totally polluted, we drink polluted water, inhale air full of dust, and eat food with traces of pesticides and other toxic chemicals.Hence we are suffering from diseases. As a result of human activities, the ozone layer has a hole, the sea is rising, and the ice caps of Antarctica and Greenland is melting. Now global warming is warning us that climate change is not a hoax and it is coming.
Development is good but not when it is creating problems in the surrounding.We have totally crossed the line by being greedy and selfish but now it’s important that we focus on the problem and start working on it so that we can have balance and peace. Beacause “Mahatma Gandhi” said “Earth provides enough to satisfy man’s need, but not every man’s greed”.Reduce needs, reuse things and recycle wastes to save our lovely planet. Keep oceans blue, forests green, rivers environment clean, and earth light. Because we have been blessed with nature to fulfill our need but not our greed.
There are simple ways to save the earth and the living:
- Plant more tress. Don’t allow anyone to cut trees.
- Save wild animals.
- Speak out and write against polluting industries.
- Ask the government to use non-conventional energy resources (wind, water, sunlight, and biomass)
- Make student and citizens aware of the importance of saving the environment, and the many things that we can do to protect the environment, forests and wildlife.
- Use bicycle as much as possible.
- Don’t misuse precious water and electricity.
- Don’t use plastics when you can avoid it.
These small things can bring a lot of change in the environment we just need to make a habit of it and tell others too that how we can save the earth, after all, it’s the only one we got.
Sooner or later we will have to recognize that the earth has rights to live without pollution. what “Mankind” must know is that ‘Human Beings’ cannot live without ‘Mother Earth’ but the ‘Planet’ can live without ‘Humans’- “Evo Morales”
HOPE THIS REMINDER OF MINE WILL MAKE YOU TAKE SOME STEPS IN THE IMPROVEMENT OF PLANET AND WON’T BE SELISH THIS TIME.
OR THE END WILL BE IRONIC!
