Now more than ever, we need to exert an effort to take care of our environment. Let us do our part in protecting it from further damage and harm. Those who do not realize the severity of the problem are not aware of the disastrous effects when nature fights back against our abuse and exploitation of her resources. We have been more at risk now. We are living on the edge and on the brink of disaster. We have seen how lives are lost and properties are damaged when natural disasters strike different communities all over the world. And sadly, things will only get worse if we do not turn from our abusive ways of treating Mother Nature.
Every day, we feel the effects of climate change. The hot season gets hotter and the wet season gets wetter. This changes in our climate bring different diseases and calamities. The sea level is rising and slowly claims low lying lands. These are just some of the realities of climate change.
Some would say that it is the government’s responsibility to save our planet. But it is really the responsibility of each and every one of us. We do not need one big heroic act to save planet Earth (although we wish that would be possible). All we need is to resolve to take care of our environment a little better each and every day. Simple acts of green living when done by each and every one of us can make a big difference on our planet. Take for example eliminating the use of plastic in our homes. It takes a long time before plastic decomposes. Each plastic that you do not use helps our planet breathe a little bit easier. Think of what you can do to help take care of our planet and start doing it now!
