Witnessing the surge in population every passing year, one of our concerns is the amount of green house gases that we collectively emit through vehicular and industrial pollution, building of concrete structures and falling of essential trees causing Ozone depletion and warmer climates around the globe. The changing climate pattern is affecting our bio diversity and natural ecosystem. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the ground we walk on, the nature that we so endearingly watch all are being lost, least realizing that our economy depends on this.
