The climate is changing, Earlier it was very warm now everywhere it is chilly. Is it climatic dis-balance or revenge by the nature against atrocities being committed by the man.

Thanks for starting this discussion. I'm on an environmental streak myself. I wish there was a way we could promote tree planting as well. Let me know if you have ideas. I'll support you.

Thanks for your question & interest.The job is not easy but satisfying even you don't get success. I have been targeting landowners/farmers.If a farmer plants trees on boundaries, he gets added bonus in form of increased ground level & an option to sow additional crops. If any farmer has barren land he is very likely to buy idea of planting fruit trees if he can. Oxygen exhaling & CO2 inhaling trees are worshiped in India since ancient times & barren lands welcome any proposal for such tree plantation.But whole exercise takes years together to yield results.Patience is the key. Un-irrigated lands also welcome ideas of plantation, bonus is improvement in land and remember trees conserve ground water. Planting tree in rememberence of departed souls or to celebrate is also a big idea.One of my friends started with the idea and I am proud that now MP has many such plantation areas. The furniture lovers & smugglers & land mafia are biggest enemies and they have to be collectively discouraged to fell trees. Govt some times helps but most of the time many officials are busy in money minting and block spreading of the message. The forest area of India & the world is decreasing day by day and now felling of green trees should be treated as murder. Its high time that we strive to increase forest cover and now one man on each 10 people require to work for plantations & forest conservation.

Hi ! anilcsapre thank you for starting the discussion mother nature alwas on the giving end but man has crossed the limit in harnessing every feild be it mining, water, forests as a result of which the climate has become imbalanced that is why heavy snow fall has come into the northen part of the earth. Even now if we do not control the green house gases and global warming the condition might go from bad to worse. we all must fight pollution unitedly.
