It's true. We literally destroyed our earth and we are getting punished for our deeds. Deforestation, burning plastics, cutting down every trees, converting paddy, wheat fields into grounds and later building up flats, we destroyed our environment and habitats. Which resulted in climate change & season changes. We didn't get enough rain last 2 years. And now just when summer about to start in March, people are already running for water. Most streams, wells, rivers got dried up. Don't know how much water is left in reservoirs and how much more electricity they will be able to produce. Hope people will realise what they are doing before it's too late.

Unfortunately people don't get the drift until the poop hits the fan @ragikutty . I see in our future glass-domed cities.

I hope not. I hope for a greener planet. Hope our next generation will plant twice the trees our generation cut down

@ragikutty The people want to see a greener planet but it is the governments and the BIG businesses that are preventing it from happening. PLUS, we need to STOP the population explosion. This planet doesn't need the 7.6 BILLION people it has on it. It is unsustainable.

@nanette64 very true. But none wants to control population. Everyone wants to see children, grand children, great grand children etc.

Yes, much of what is happening is a result of things we have done to the planet. We do reap what we sow.

@ragikutty I'll tell you a little secret. We won't! Yes, some of us will but those that do will be a trickle compared to those that don't or won't.

@1hopefulman I know. Many won't get the point. Even a little thought change might help us all.

Humans are the most destructive creatures on earth in every way. I think far too many humans only care about themselves and do not care if their actions do harm.

If they really care about themselves that's enough. They can stop destroying the environment for their own good.

@avi256 I can't imagine what's gonna happen in next month,so can't imagine in 20 years. Most of wells and ponds got dried up and hence many are digging more into the wells.

May be we should start educating children from the time they understand all this stuffs. Only if the next generation start thinking about the planet we live in, they start caring for our earth

More than people , it is the fault of Government and entrepreneurs who are mainly responsible for cutting of trees at rapid pace. People need infrastructure development and nature has to pay for it. The point is if we cut so many trees, do we have a backup to plant them at double rate.

Exactly, if they aren't doing it, those who understand the issue should start planting trees for our own good. I started doing it for quite sometime. I planted lots of trees in my little place .

@avi256 just give it a try. Needn't plant expensive ones. We just need more and more trees and water bodies. Encourage those who you know to do it as well. Polluting water body is another issue. But sadly one or two person's effort isn't going to stop it.
