Protecting the environment is a belief, a relegion...by heart, we have become people embracing the Earth. We see the flowers, the birds, the butterflies and the little ones not just with eyes of love, but of concern as well. ..Our voices echo the cries of the Earth, its eyes filled with tears and anger, crying- 'Stop','Dont hurt'... The battle against 'wrong' development and for protecting the environment is not a regular battle of defeat and victory. 'We need soldeiers for a loosing battle. Come be a part of it', I remember writing in 1979. Even today, it continues to be a loosing battle. Its path is laid with humility and suffering.
Suguthakumari Kavu Theendalle,1993
how long do we ignore our crying planet?over the past few decades,to meet the hunger needs of our ever growing human population we have been producing food in factory farms by overwhelming the planet. When we think about threats to the environment, we tend to picture cars and melting glaciers, not dinner. But the truth is, our need for food poses one of the biggest dangers to the planet. in fact, Agriculture is among the greatest contributors to global warming, emitting more greenhouse gases than all our cars, trucks, trains, and airplanes combined.
