Speech on Environment Day.
Respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends, Today, as we celebrate World Environment Day, I’d like to share my views with you. The other day, I read that some region in Maharashtra received unseasonal heavy rains which damaged the harvest. Some days after that, there were reports of animals in the polar regions being found dead due to an increase in the polar temperature. It is June here but instead of us enjoying the first monsoon showers, we are profusely sweating and gulping down ice cold water because of the severe heat and humidity. It is time that we stop neglecting the threats of nature and take steps to conserve the environment. Cutting down forests is not a way of increasing accommodation or business capacities. A tree takes years to fully grow, but we ruthlessly cut it down to build infrastructures. This leads to increase in global temperatures and imbalance in the environment. The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami is the best example of how exploitation of nature leads to irreparable damage. Even after 11 years, the event is still affecting the region and this has urged experts to continue studies both to support recovery efforts and to understand the science behind this devastating natural disaster. My point here is, if we had not violated nature’s laws in the first place, would the disaster take place? I strongly advocate cautious use of natural resources and respect towards natural beauty so that the world remains a beautiful place to live in.
