This is the age of reason, of information and of awareness. The world is increasingly becoming a wired place where physical boundaries have been effaced by the spectacular means of communication like internet, wireless and now fiber optics. With this heightened state of global awareness the urge to be humane and to be kind to the Mother Nature has also been growing with the passage of time and the advancement of modes of communication. The rise of social networking has also contributed a lot towards this urge towards the preservation of Mother Nature; with their help likeminded people can stay connected even if they are geographically thousands of miles away from each other. People like to be reminded of their responsibilities vis-à-vis the environment and that is the reason every literate and economically liberated person on the face of the earth loves to indulge in reading environmental news articles.
Environment is naturally embedded with the human sub-conscience it is rather an ineluctable part of human evolution. Ever since man evolved from the monkeys, he has been doing certain things, for his own survival, that have a direct impact over the environment in general and over his surroundings in particular. The pre-historic Homo sapiens were a much less threat to the environment than today’s humans. Today we need tons of energy to perform certain activities like going out, heating a house or planning a housing settlement. Not only this quite a lot of energy is consumed even in performing mundane and day to day tasks such as washing clothes, watching TV, or working on a computer. All these activities have ostensible repercussions over the environment and that is why the more humane side of humans has been evoked to save our planet and the future of our children.
