Google highlights climate change impact through Doodle

Pollution of the earth through various means is becoming a threat to human life and other living beings

On World Earth Day today , Google has created a time -lapse video that shows the impact of climate change across the planet over the decades. The video is a reminder of the damage that has been done to this planet over the decades. 
Mahatma Gandhi once said, "Nature is so powerful that it can fulfil the need of every human being, but the earth can never satisfy the greed of humans". The nature and life of every living being are interdependent. Global warming is an alarming issue in the present time, the Earth Day which is observed on April 22, aims to create an awareness regarding the preservation and protection of nature.
This day was established on 1969 by Gelod Nelson as a day to mark environmental education. The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970 when a United States senator from Wisconsin organized a national demonstration to raise awareness about environmental issues.
Rallies took place across the country and, by the end of the year, the U.S. government had created the Environmental Protection Agency. By 1990, Earth Day was an event celebrated by more than 140 countries around the globe. Researchers estimate roughly 15 billion trees in the world are cut down each year, so help offset that loss by planting a tree of your own. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen for people to breathe.
The theme for Earth Day 2022 is "Invest In our Planet". The day aims to spread awareness about issues, including pollution, deforestation and global warming
By taking part in activities like picking up litter and planting trees, we're making our world a happier, healthier place to live. Does that lamp really need to be on while the sun is out? Electricity doesn't just happen"it has to be produced from things around us.
In conversation with Mr Monoj Saikia, senior environmental scientist from the Pollution Contol Board of Assam, Fit Northeast came to know that pollution is becoming a huge challenge for the people of Guwahati
A lot of times it comes from fossil fuels (such as coal, oil, or natural gas) that contribute to climate change. But electricity can also be made from renewable sources like wind, water, the sun, and even elephant dung! No matter where it's coming from, try conserving electrical energy by using only what you need.

Pollution of the earth through various means is becoming a threat to human life and other living beings. The modernity in the city areas mainly is giving rise to environmental pollution. According to a dermatologist in Guwahati, excessive air pollution is resulting in increasing cases of skin issues and allergies among people. It is also resulting in early ageing. Pollution is one of the factors of skin damage. The people who stay in rural and hilly areas report less cases of skin issues due to pollution as compared to those in the cities.
In conversation with Mr Monoj Saikia, a senior environmental scientist from the Pollution Contol Board of Assam, Fit Northeast came to know that pollution is becoming a huge challenge for the people of Guwahati. The biggest hazard is the disposal and usage of plastic. Saikia added that the awareness of the people is extremely necessary in caring for mother earth. Along with it, industrial pollution is also a factor.
He added that it was good to an extent that these days the industries take various measures for disposing of the waste without harming the nature. The status of air pollution in Assam (specially in the cities) is slightly more as the roads are narrow in compared to the other cities like Delhi, Kolkata and Bombay.
The use of fertilizes in the fields also a big reason behind the pollution of the soil. This process also impacts the fruit, which in turn cause a negative reaction in the human body. In order to avoid this state, many people are now switching to permaculture.
Permaculture (the word, coined by Bill Mollison, is a portmanteau of permanent agriculture and permanent culture) is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems.
