The world is burning, the World is on alarm!
The forests cover almost 30 percent of total land surface area of the planet Earth. But this 30 percent is being decreased by deforestation and this is clearly visible in the image given below. Deforestation is clearly visible.
These trees which we cut down on this regular a basis give us innumerable valuable things that can’t be replaced, nor can be received by any other means. The food security, shelter, medicines, and oxygen – the foremost thing to keep yourself alive, and many more such essential life governing assets.
Deforestation is turning into a serious issue around the globe, serious steps are to be taken on the issue before it’s late. The earth was first green and is now turning into a barren wasteland, losing its main attributes such as forests. The amount of carbon dioxide is added more by excessive deforestation in tropical rain forests rather than total pollution caused by the sum total of cars and trucks on the roads of the world.
The amount of pollution caused by cars and trucks is 14 percent whereas the percentage of pollution caused by deforestation is 15 percent of global carbon emissions, these records and statistics are given by world carefree network (WCN).
“Unless we change the present system that rewards deforestation aka Forest destruction, forest clearing will put another 200 billion tons of carbon dioxide Into the atmosphere by coming decades…. ‘” says EDF. According to Environmental Defence Fund (EDF), a leading green group acknowledged that in between the years 2000-2009, the deforestation rate sharply increased and is increasing with a constant pace with time.
Deforestation is termed as clearing a wide area of trees. The clearance of Virgin forests intentionally by destruction, for selfish uses or for sustenance, in the name of commercial uses of building houses or industries, regularly cutting down trees for firewood and not even replanting to compensate the lost forest cover, not thinking the loss is their own. Once the Forest is cleared they won’t receive any more wood for firewood. This deforestation is one of the key factors contributing to ‘Greenhouse effect’ and ‘Desertification’.
The solution to this problem is actually not very difficult. To plant as many trees as one can manage to plant is the most fool proof way to bring back the Earth from the brink of catastrophe.
But is it really possible for everyone?
WE HAVE SIMPLIFIED THE PROCESS FOR YOU!
Infintree Foundation has made the planting of trees (and tending to them) as easy as it gets. Small steps go a long way. All you have to do is contribute a certain amount, as per your convenience, and your contribution will be used by us to plant more saplings and provide employment to gardeners and other strata of the society.
IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY
Fortunately (or unfortunately) for us, Climate Change is actually something that we all can do something about, instead of waiting for the government to step in. The earth is not merely a collective treasure, it also is a heirloom, meant to be preserved and fine tuned to be passed down to the coming generations. It is as much the public’s responsibility to be mindful of the environment as it is of the governments.
WE ARE THE FUTURE
We are a young country, and can do anything, should we wish to. The youth needs to be awakened to its responsibilities and its shining (albeit veiled) opportunities – this dismal situation is a great opportunity for the youth to not only do something worthwhile for the Earth, but also to hone their leadership skills and stun the world with their enthusiasm and resourcefulness.
This is a quiet revolution, and it’s upon us to make it a successful one.
