Environment, defined as the surrounding or condition in which a person, animal, or the plant lives, is very important to determine the presence or existence of life. The environment of the Earth is idea for supporting life form. Till now, it is only known planet in the Universe that has life form because of its suitable environment. The importance of a suitable environment cannot be stressed enough. In the initial days, the people did not realise the importance of adding a check on steadily increasing pollution.
Their, ignorance, however, brought irreparable damage in the environment. The increase in the global temperature is a direct effect of the pollution that the people are suffering now. This global warming has caused a major change in the climate of the planet Earth. It has changed the patterns of the season of across the world . the human beings over the years, have acted inconsiderably towards the other living creatures on the surface of the Earth.
In India, the Ministry of Enviroment and Forest works relentlessly in order to bring about a positive change in the present condition of the environment. Various acts have been passes in order to ensure that the harm done to the environment is reduced. However, the process of Environmental Impact Assessment has not been observed properly in India
This process is not carried out with the help of advanced technology; as a result, the process takes a long time. To add to the problem, the data is not provided on time and efficiently. One of the biggest problems is the presence of corruption in the society. Since, offering and accepting bribe in India is a common affair, it is easy for the assessment report to be biased.
The other problem with our society is that we do not think that it is our moral responsibility to look after our environment. We feel that someone else will do it for us. We talk about Global Warming, Weather Change and ever Increasing prices of vegetables and pulses, but we barely take a step towards curbing the same. How many of us, would actually think about taking a step towards reducing some Air Pollution by planting trees. Unfortunately for us, the solution to problem is more pollution. Instead of planting more trees in and around our surroundings, we end up using Air Purifiers for Pure Air.
Till the time, the Citizens, do not understand the importance of a clean environment, there will not be sufficient pressure on the Authorities and the Government to work towards the same. Just because we are ignorant about the environment, a lot of people are misusing their powers and authorities in permitting industries to function,without proper environmental assessments.
What can be possible solutions?
- Stringent action against those who violate the environment regulations.
- In the name of development, we are making a world an unfit place to live in, if environmental assessment is done effectively, major steps can be taken to prevent any further damage to the environment.
If human beings continue to exploit the resources at the present rate, sooner or later all the life forms will perish. Unseasonal Rains and ever increasing price of food is the first step towards the same.
