Plant bamboo trees. It helps in generating oxygen, grows fast and is good for the environment. However, we cannot control nature. This can only be controlled by the Almighty, so if we in the Local Circles, pray fervently, the adversity will pass. Note how the USA has been affected in the last week with floods, no electricity, no food or water, this region is not heavily populated, nevertheless it is devastated. So what are the suggestions? Is it climate change, bad habits of people throwing garbage anywhere and everywhere, polluting water bodies???? more  
population control and plantation are immediate requirements....61000 lightening strikes on a single day in one area is too much....Orissa tops the list for some reason...most deaths are in UP.... On Mon, 09 Aug 2021 19:43:40 +0530 Vinita Agrawal wrote > more  
Let's plan the small sustainable solutions with wise use of natural resources. We can find the way to sustain in climate change crisis. Number of green soldiers needs to get increased. Awareness creation helps to train the populations about green building, organic agriculture, waste mangement and herbal traditions. Let's join hands to reset positively. more  
Urbanisation and population put excessive pressure on land, which in any case is finite.. It's about time that we start defining development itself.. May be back to basic... Need to simplify life and life styles.. more  
Stop environmental destruction in the name of development. Stop concretizing, start greening. Stop pollution of air and water, harvest rain water effectively. The loss of lives lost by these mindless projects will be multiple times the jobs they create. Imagine this, ₹28,000 crore worth of industrial investment projects approved (including plastic manufacturing 😠) in Karnataka. This would generate 15000 jobs. Is it worth it? more
