Today is Earth Day. The whole World is celebrating this day raising awareness among the global citizens to protect our very own planet from different maladies.
We’ve to be serious on this issue, because our planet is going through many crisis—global warming, air pollution, deforestation, earthquake, floods have all caused havoc from time to time taking millions of lives all across the globe. Recently, earthquakes in Ecuador, Japan and Nepal ravaged our ecosystem.
Our overdependence on non-renewable energy like fossil fuels, natural gas, oil and coal is taking a toll on our planet. Because, this energy emits harmful particles in the air, causing a serious threat to our lives; our resources are limited, it will vanish soon. It’s good that we’ve already started using renewable energy, which we get from Sun, wind, geothermal resources and ocean.
This Earth Day is very significant because today leaders from 160 countries are going to officially sign the Paris Climate Agreement. It’s a very important deal to tackle global warming and other environmental issues which were discussed last December in Paris.
Leaders of World had agreed in Paris Climate Summit to keep global warming below 1.5 degree Celsius, with developed countries agree to provide dollar 100 billion of public and private finance to help developing countries by 2020. Moreover, on this occasion of Earth Day—its organizers are hoping to plant 7.8 billion trees, divest from fossil fuels and make try to make our cities 100% renewable.
We must nurture Earth for a happier World—free from all environmental issues that has created troubles for our livelihood for years. It’s our prerogative to keep up with this momentum, which we got after years of research, struggle and endeavours.
We get so many things from this beautiful planet, so we must protect it otherwise our planet won’t be able survive the test of time in future. So, all governments should ensure that it’s been done throughout the year and it’s been done continuously to sustain our planet as a whole for as long as we can.
