If Ozone could identify the colours how good the scenerio would be. Every where even on roads there is a greenry. A mile long road full of green colour. By seeing this Ozone would feel happy as it will not deplete now but alas! Ozone is depleting, but why? As Ozone couldnt identify GREEN colour and cant be fooled as our administration and we are being fooled now. Here the scene of lucknow will be discussed later in this article where a long queue and jams of green taxis and tempos could be seen.
What is Ozone? Ozone is a pale blue gas mainly present in the stratosphere forming a layer as ozonosphere. Ozone layer sustains life on the earth by absorbing a great deal of UV light radiating out of sun. If UV light falls directly on earth without being absorbed by the Ozone layer, it will lead to sunburn, skin diseases and ultimately death.
What does Green colour resemble? Green is an effective colour that is so commonly used to create awareness of a global trend of environmentalism.
Environment is a serious issue now a days amongst us. It includes everything which surrounds us from everywhere like air, water, etc. Named both elements and every element of our environment is equally important for the existence of life. A slight impurity in any of these things will hamper lifes to a great extent.
Every photograph, designs or sketches, GREEN colour is used to denote environment friendly scenerio but in a real life this is not a case. This real life scenerio can be seen clearly in Lucknow City where Govt. is much concerned on environmental issues devising new methods and techniques to develop a healthy and clean environment but may be Govt. is confused as to green colour of tempo and taxis running fearlessly and not concerned about pollution. A long and time consuming jams on the road created by them are not only creating environmental issues but also personal health issues like through respiration lead enters human body causing respiratory disorders and deterioration of the nervous system.
These jams and pollution are the main cause of giving birth to Regrettable necessities for the citizens.
Running fearlessly without following proper norms creating a mess on roads.
The Geneva Convention is one of the central means for protecting our environment. It has substantially contributed to the development of international environmental law and has created the essential framework for controlling and reducing the damage to human health and the environment caused by transboundary air pollution. A concept of Sustainable Consumption emerged then, “Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” but in this era are we not concerned about our future generations even we are not concerned about ourselves too. Profit has become the essence of our business.
We atleast at this point have to think of our mother nature, protector of our earth, how she is suffocating with this pollution. She is incapable to identify the colour as we are but she is not as much blind as we are who only can see a green colour and praising our policies and not concerned of the pollution caused these green coloured devils. We should act responsibly as only we who are facing many problems and our generations will.
As far as environment is concerned a real green coloured tree should be planted inspite of Green Devils. CNG and electric rickshaws should be encouraged more. Petrol and diesel driven vehicles should be serviced in time, should be replaced before their age limit and most important is that we have to think our environment as our responsibility.
