Our Planet is in a Climate Calamity – ” A CODE RED FOR HUMANITY ” & we all need to Save Earth. Globally, the amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the atmosphere are creating havoc and putting lives, economies, health, and agriculture at risk. According to the 2019 report, 850 million metric tonnes of greenhouse gases were generated by plastic, and 250 million tonnes of plastic will hit the ecosystems by 2025.
India With a population of 1.4 billion inhabitants, is the world’s second-most populous nation and the third-highest source of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions after China and the United States Of America.
The rise in the global temperature of the atmosphere because of the emission of greenhouse gases resulted in a slew of negative repercussions. Global average temperatures, most of us are careless & busy in our respective lives but some of our fellow citizens are on a bigger mission in life, & it is – ” save earth”.
