Save your life... Save Envinronment.... Reduce Pollution
Devote a little time to our planet
Air pollution is a point of major concern now. Statistics shows that there is an enormous increase in breathing and chest related diseases in urban areas.
The major roadblock in building non-polluting / less polluting factories is the cost of pollution control, which is seen as profit reducer. Since the impact of air
pollution is long term, the general tendency is to swipe the issue under the carpet. However now since we have started facing the ill effects of air pollution from industries placed a decade or more ago, there is a general awareness for the need to reduce air pollution from new industries.
Considering the lukewarm response of industries to invest into pollution control measures, at the initially it will be necessary to force these requirement by government regulation. A system of heavy penalty for offenders and reward for complier should give a head start to such initiatives.
Another option is to provide government sponsorship for alternate energy systems like wind and solar power.
Lastly it will be only public pressure which can bring in a change and hence creating awareness in public will go in a long way to promote this cause.Barry's Response
- Thank you Vinay. We need more influential thoughts on this subject, without going to the meaningless extremes some environmentalists put forth. Enjoy our home while we can.Search
