The Green Mantra
This is my first blog so just bear with me! And yes comments are welcome!
OK! Getting back to what I wanted to write about ‘Green Mantra’. Everywhere these days there is such a hype to go green! Every television channel, every political party campaign, every MNC is talking about it but even then why is it that no one is doing anything about it??? This is one thing that never stops amazing me!
I totally believe that this pseudo-concern these people and organisations show is a complete eyewash! Making people like us believe that something is really being done about this but the grim truth is no one really cares!
But I dont know why people fail to realise that the time to play around with words! It really is time to get serious and start making an attempt towards saving Nature cause if dont, Nature will confront us with more Tsunami’s and Katrina’s killing large number of people!
It’s not about the polar bears or the Antarctic penguins anymore! It is about the human race! Dont get me wrong, I am not saying that the Polar bears are not equally important but all I am trying to do is show the magnitude of the problem!
Some people that I have seen who are completely dedicated and genuinely towards this is the IYCN(India Youth Climate Network), these guys are doing a great job of educating people and providing a platform for all the people who really want to make a change! I think anyone who is interested should consider going through their site to know more about whats happening. (I am not getting paid for talking about them!)
I even heard that in one international UN conference everyone was talking about the ‘tipping point’. Everyone believes that we have gone too far in exploiting Nature and we are going to have to pay back! In other words a point of no return!
I do agree that we have gone too far but I definitely think we can bounce back with solutions! Who thought we could get away with small pox which took the lives of 300-500 million people in the 20th century??? But we did! We did it by working together! We have to do the same even now. We need to stand as one against this problem of climate change!We have a large youth movement targeting this which is indeed a very good sign.
I believe we have all the solutions, we just need enthusiastic and determined people implementing them in every strata of society! Thats all!
I just want everyone to believe it is doable! Because, impossible is nothing!!!!
