The history of civilization is around 7500 BCE old. The presence of life on earth is way older than that, the first traces of life on earth were found in 4.1 billion years ago. The first form of life may be a tiniest bacteria or any micro-organism. The earth function on a primary principle that is evolution which gave birth to plants, animals, social animals it evolved in billions of years to the present day. The earth has an eco-system which is based on evolution or what we say is reproduction. To understand that phenomenon let us take example of water cycle. The sunlight evaporates the water which then form into clouds and the become heavier and when reaches a spot the cloud burst into rain, snow, hailstorm. This all gives us rivers, lakes and we store the water for our need, this system goes on and on. Similarly, there are many other function that earth performs and the life thrives on this planet. This is called the nature of the earth.
So far The Earth is only known planet where life can exist. But with our deep efforts we are trying our best to disturb the balance of earth, by putting so much pressure on the earth’s eco system. Earth has this vital element which is called soil. The soil comprises of minerals, water, plants, air It has a process of decaying it absorbs the pollution we made on the ground. It provides us food, shelter, oxygen. But there is a limit to everything. We are spoiling the nature of earth.
As we know that 2018 is the hottest year, the data of past 36 months shows that the temperature has risen by 1.2C above pre-industrial levels. The second on the chart are year 2017 and 2016 respectively. The main cause of the temperature is CO2 emission. Earth’s oceans, forests and other ecosystems continue to soak up about half the carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere by human activities. The scientists analyzed 50 years of global carbon dioxide (CO2) measurements and found that the processes by which the planet’s oceans and ecosystems absorb the greenhouse gas are not yet at capacity. “Globally, these carbon dioxide ‘sinks’ have roughly kept pace with emissions from human activities, continuing to draw about half of the emitted CO2 back out of the atmosphere. However, we do not expect this to continue indefinitely. Obviously The nature of Earth also has its limitation. We have seen the results in the form of melting of arctic ice and the rise in sea level. The less amount of rains and the rise in temperatures. So it is a now or never. Either we act now or we die tomorrow killing the earth and the future on the planet.
Earth day is celebrated on 22nd April every year to reaffirm our commitment to The Earth & nature. We have already lost 60% our wildlife species in past 70 years and 70% of land is degraded i past 300 years for the sake of development and Human betterment.
Here is our Vlog of Earth Day.
