World Earth Day :: Save our planet

in: Ideas and Thoughts

Today is World Earth Day. Earth Day is celebrated throughout the world to generate awareness among the people about the planet earth. It was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in held on April 22, 1970. This date marked the beginning of the modern environmental movement. More than 20 million Americans participated in the campaign. Thousands of colleges and universities organized protests against the deterioration of the environment. I request all abhisays readers, please don’t blow earth with pollutants, dangerous gases, e-wastes, deforestation, good planets are hard to find.

The earth we abuse and the living things we kill will, in the end, take their revenge; for in exploiting their presence we are diminishing our future. Now the time has come to fight against cutting of trees, hunting, oil spills, plastics, polluting factories and power plants, raw sewage, toxic dumps, harmful pesticides so as to save our planet from extinction.
