'Exploitation of natural resources in the name of development is destructive'
Result of ignorantly exploitation of natural resources in the name of development, is destructive, said Raj Kishore Kalra, Educationist and President, Social Welfare Society on World Environment Day celebrations.

Kalra said, in the blind race of modern development, the way the imbalance in environment is being ignored, will not only create a problem for fresh air and clean water but its impact on production of food products will not be controllable.

With reference to the report released by Organization for Economic Corporation & Development (OEASD), Kalra said, in case the human being is not in a position to reduce to half the present carbon layer by 2050 then it would be difficult to save ourselves from natural calamities like floods, tsunami, earthquakes, drought, epidemic etc. and there will be a shortage of food products all over the world.

In the report it is also said that the major responsibility for polluting the environment is of developed and rich countries in the world.

Despite showing seriousness in the name of environment at the global level, there are no positive steps to have control over the emissions of gases of green houses.

With the rapid increase in temperature, flood and drought like situation in most of the countries are on the increasing side.

Kalra said, the thick forest at a speed of about 2 crore hectare are vanishing in whole of the world like California- one of the biggest in geographical area of America, where the forests are being eloped. In case this pace of reducing of forests continued, then in the coming 20-30 years, it will be great threat to the natural resources and the results will be astonishing.

He further said, forests gives oxygen to mankind and in the absence of forests, the layer of carbon dioxide would continue to accumulate in the sky which will increase the temperature. In case, preventive measures are not taken at the global level, the mass destruction is certain.

Kalra appealed to all political, social, religious and educational institutions, to plant trees instead of cutting it otherwise the coming generations will have to face the serious consequences.
