Threats to Our Natural Resources

April 9, 2007 8:46am CST
Due to imbalance of eco-system and change in climatic condition natural resources are vanishing in fast rate. Some of them are Sunderbans, the world's largest mangrove forest; Himalayan glaciers; Amazonian rain forests; Australia's Great Barrier Reef. You know the glaciers of Himalaya is melting and receding 10 to 15 meters in a year. The result will be a gaint flood initially and droughts in future. Sea level is also rising---- 2mm. in a year. So plant trees; stop polution; do something before its too late

Well this is a great concern of mine too, and I once started a topic on that. Today only I read in a newspaper, that there scientists working on Global Warming effects, are preparing another report. The report will say taht within 80 years, more than 50 percent of the polar ice will melt. India will be one of those countries, which wil face huge scarcity of drinking water in the coming years. I feel the people using devices that are doing pollution, will sit dumb about reducing pollution, till the last day of the earth. I do not expect anything from these people.
