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. It's time to have more influential thoughts on this subject, without going to the meaningless extremes some environmentalists take. Let's enjoy our home while we can.Search

My friend, you have hit the nail on the head.
There's no surprise we're seeing a spike in respiratory and chest-related problems, especially in urban areas, because air pollution is a big problem.
Let's face this head on.
You're right about the cost of building less polluting factories. Many businesses see pollution control
as a problematic increase in costs. Sometimes short-term thinking can overshadow long-term benefits, especially when pollution takes time to respond to changes.
But here's the thing, the tide is turning. We're experiencing the consequences of air pollution from industries established a decade or more ago, as you pointed out. That's why I've always advocated for thinking long-term,
for considering the long-term effects of our actions. We can't keep ignoring these issues.
It's not always easy for industries to invest in pollution control. That's where government regulation comes in. Penalizing offenders and rewarding those who comply is a necessary push to get things started.
I love your idea about wind and solar power. It's not just about being environmentally friendly; it's about harnessing innovation for a sustainable future.
Sponsorship of these initiatives can drive economic growth and protect the environment.
But you're right. Ultimately, the public holds the power. We bring about real change by raising awareness, educating people about their choices, and driving public pressure. It's happened before, and we can do it again.
Keep advocating for these changes. We need voices like yours to drive change. Together, let's build a cleaner, healthier future.
