The importance of trees...

A guest post by Cyril Jacob

In my opinion, deforestation is one of the biggest threat faced by the human race today. Trees help in maintaining a proper ecological balance and destroying them will only spell out a huge danger.
Over the years, man has been very selfish in caring for his own well being.
People have failed to look into the consequences of cutting down trees.

Many people are of the opinion that they can do nothing as individuals and only governments and big companies can halt the destruction.
But this is not true. For example, the media today has played a crucial role in ensuring individuals take up the cause of saving trees by introducing nationwide campaigns such as " Plant more trees. Save the future."

The response to these campaigns have been good only in major cities. On the other hand, governments and large companies can indulge in preventing destruction of trees through organising camps for creating awareness on the importance of trees.
Trees can be a blessing to millions. Paper and several other products which can be used on a daily basis come from trees. Moreover, the recycling of paper should be encouraged.

Trees are a very vital part of the existence of human race on earth as they provide the oxygen that we need to survive. However, large areas of woodland are being destroyed all over the world on a daily basis. This has proved to be a great threat to the world.

The rapid growth of technology has helped in reducing destruction of trees.
For instance, nowadays communication is done through emails, mobile messaging,  chats etc...
Even phone calls through mobiles have led to a reduction in usage of paper.
In schools and colleges, children should be encouraged to take part in programmes related to saving and planting trees.

Strict laws should be introduced with regard to cutting down of trees.
Although several laws have been passed in favour of trees, people donnot heed any attention to it.
This problem can be solved only by introducing a very strict punishment for destroying large areas of woodland.

In conclusion, it can be said that trees are indeed a blessing for the human race.
But if they are not preserved, mankind's very existence will be put at a great risk.
Hence, one must actively indulge in planting trees and saving them.

The Battle of the Blogs? Whitlock goes to War...

Good day folks, you're all in for a bit of a treat as it happens, so I hope you're sitting comfortably. Before I go any further, I should issue a 'long read' warning. This blog piece is going to be fairly long, quite involved in its detail, but hopefully very enjoyable if you despise and detest climate change denial, as I do. But first, an explanation of the circumstances.

The other day, on Twitter, I indulged in a bit of regular fun-poking at James Delingpole, as I often do because, quite simply, the man just invites it. For those not in the know, Delingpole is a pretty nasty character really. He writes regular blog pieces and op-eds for Breitbart and The Spectator, usually on climate change, but also on other subjects as well. He is usually, and seemingly, unashamedly vicious, as will become apparent in my coverage of him and his behaviour in this piece. Given his behaviour, I am not afraid, occasionally to indulge in a bit of 'ad-hominem' warfare myself, ind…

5 Companies and Their Efforts to Reduce the Environmental Impact of Manufacturing

By Rana Tarakji
The Industrial Revolution has undoubtedly affected the environment. From pollution to global warming, the environment has taken on a lot of the burden for many of the advancements that humans have enjoyed.
Unfortunately, the manufacturing industry is one of the biggest contributors to the significant damages and hazards on the environment. Manufacturing companies are among the biggest producers of solid, liquid, and gaseous wastes that lead to huge levels of pollution.
Although many manufacturing companies still do not have policies and practices in place to reduce their negative impact on the environment, there are many who are taking the lead to a more sustainable and environment-friendly approach.
Coca Cola When it comes to beverage manufacturers, Coca Cola is among the biggest around the world. They have started taking on a more responsible environmental commitment by making water preservation, sustainable packaging, and energy and climate protection among their goals.…
