Nature provides a free lunch, Only if we control our appetite.”
In the current world of increased environmental problems, its solution has become a debatable issue. Some people think that it is impossible for an individual to solve these problems whereas some opine that government should come forth with helping hand. It is explained in the following paragraphs.
First of all, we can observe so many problematic issues of environment. These are likely to be solved only if public is also aware. Some people find it too big to be solved by an individual. They think of so many problems like ozone depletion, radiation pollution and extinction of species. These problems sound very devastating. One individual alone can’t help to eradicate these problems. Some think that these issues are at their extreme level so public can’t contribute even to stabilize the level of such problems.
As far as, my opinion is concerned, a flower cannot make a garland. If every individual makes some efforts to reduce daily waste, use public transport for short distance travelling or leave the throw away culture then he can give his 60% contribution in remolding the environment. We take an instance of Ganga-action plan. Under this plan, many laws are legislated. But, if every individual violates these laws then how can we think of a clean Ganga. The depletion of ozone layer and global warming can also be controlled if every common man reduces the unnecessary cars, and other machines. We are playing with laws of nature also by disturbing the food chain. One can also stop hunting just for fun. These are some ideas for an individual to extend a helpful hand
On the other hand some people think government should come ahead and do some constructive works. Many eco-friendly laws can be made like one car per family. It should concentrate on current problems which are remaining to be solved. Government should take serious steps like recycling of substances and ban on hunting of vulnerable and rare species of animals. All laws should be abided by people everywhere. Government has banned plastics bags, but these are still found in some markets. It should aware the illiterate people about it. Solar products and biogas plants must be launched.
In a nutshell, I can say that it is true that environmental problems are big enough but the proper co-operation of public and government can result in excellent consequences otherwise it will be of no use crying over spilt milk.
