The Central Government of India is right now formulating with the idea of a 1,400-km long and 5-km wide green belt from Porbandar to Panipat to control deforestation and check the spread of the Thar Desert. Times of India reports that the plan is modeled along a similar initiative in Africa, which spans 12 countries south of the Sahara. In India, the wall would span the Aravalli mountains that traverse Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi; the range has been identified as an environmentally degraded zone in need of renewal. To be sure, the ambitious plan is at a nascent stage.
Every individual should support this initiative. We need massive afforestation drives to recover degraded lands from becoming desert. These Forrest’s will help in revitalizing our rivers, underground water sources & make air quality improve. Not just for your kids. These initiative are needed for your own benefit. Spread Green.
India and world need kind of initiatives on anvil to fight for climate change, also restore the normal and en dangerous flora and fauna. Kind of green walls necessary to bring back green cover, pure air, increasing soil fertility and to check soil erosion. The only the entire world needs right now: Government plans 1,400km long great ‘green wall’ of India. Indeed a laudable initiative.
Humanity depends on forests for survival. Forests help keep our climate stable, provide oxygen and food, regulate water supply and provide habitats for more than half of all species on land, not to mention jobs and resources for the global economy.
But around the world, they are under threat. With wildfires and development-fueled deforestation continuing unabated, the need to restore our forests has never been more urgent.
Doing business in India may have become more attractive, but can India really afford a tax cut ? If the attractive tax rate, now proposed by the government, does not yield the desired economical surge, India is looking at burying itself in fiscal deficits that will erode the economy over time. Think of it as the ban on plastic, it may be too late but it is better than doing nothing. However, is it enough to save the environment specially factoring the increase in deforestation.
Unfortunately, the switch to paper bags and paper straws has increased financial stress on small vendors and deforestation indirectly and has and not really helped clean up the streets as originally hoped.
At first, it was believed that the increase in the Earth’s greenery was due to climate change but after in-depth research of the subject, NASA found that it was largely due to human effort.
