Cut the Pollution Level
While pollution cannot be curbed completely, the levels of pollution can be minimised by following methods that are simple, cost effective and user friendly. The simple underlying principle should be to live and let others live, also with an aim for cleanliness after all cleanliness is next to Godliness. Prevention is better than cure applies to pollution as well. We should have clear thinking on the following points:
Deforestation must be followed by afforestation. Air pollution can be combated by way very careful planning and location of industries, better designing of plant equipment, machinery and proper operation.
Control of automobile emissions to be developed.
To limit Global warming to the minimum extent, new methods of harnessing renewable energy resources such as wind, solar and ocean currents have to be adopted.
A crusade to protect the ozone layer from further depletion to be launched.
We have to develop bio degradable pesticides, educate farmers to use selective and relatively safe chemicals.
To fight water pollution, effluent treatment systems to be incorporated as an integral part of the Industry.
Bio gas production to be encouraged. Emphasis to be given to methods of turning wastes to wealth.
Treatment of sewage checking pollution should be done periodically.
Alternate energy sources to be made use of. Solar energy and Windmill can be used to produce electricity.
