Good morning people. Today I wish to put forward a speech in front of you on the topic ‘save the planet ‘, and I wish your full co-operation throughout the time that I will be presenting.
Also, kindly pardon me for any mistake that I commit in this course.
The planet in which we live in is the planet earth. It has been turned into a habitable planet due to the various changes that it has come across during the course of its creation.
All these factors have together contributed to make this place a survivable place.
Our planet earth is unique. It is unique because it supports life. It has the capacity to create life. It is not harsh like other planets which are filled with harmful gases and rocks. Although earlier it was something very similar.
We the humans are gifted with life from this planet. We are a part of it. It has created us. Hence, we owe our lives to this planet.
The moment we took birth on this planet we have become an integral part of this planet. Hence, it is our duty to save this planet from all the dangers that it faces.
Currently the biggest threats that it is facing is only from us.
We are creating such poisons which are slowly putting the future of this planet at risk. Seems impossible?
Well I will be putting forward some of my views which will make it clear how we are endangering our lives and also of others residing on this planet by our activities.
The first word that comes to my mind when talking about threats to this planet is ‘pollution’.
Pollution has affected this planet widely. Be it water pollution or air pollution, day by day it is increasing in exponential numbers.
Air pollution– the vast number of factories and vehicles are slowly mixing harmful gases and carbon dioxide in the pure air that we breathe in.
The carbon dioxide levels have increased to a horrific level and this gives rise to global warming.
Water pollution– all the wastes of the cities and factories are channelized and dumped into seas and rivers by sewers lines.
This damages the purity of water and makes it toxic. To make matters worse there are oil spills from vessels and mines. Oil spill cannot be reversed.
The oil keeps floating on top of water. This damages the valuable marine life. The fishes find it difficult to breathe. The oil sticks to the feathers of the birds thus making them unable to fly.
Soil pollution– soil pollution is when the soil gets contaminated by harmful pollutants and chemicals. The most known element to create soil pollution is plastic.
Plastics mixed with soil are sometimes eaten up by grazing animals thus causing them to choke, where they ultimately die.
Soil erosion is another major devil to the problem of soil pollution. The loss of rich top layer of soil is known as soil erosion.
Noise pollution– it is another form of pollution that effects ‘us’. Yes, sound pollution is caused by us and it effects us only in return.
Noise pollution is caused by the excessive use of horns in vehicles, use of high decibels of fire crackers, use to unnecessary blaring sound of loudspeakers and much more.
This problem is more serious in the metropolitan cities where the pressure on land is high.
These are few of the headings that I took to explain how the planet’s life is at risk and how we are degrading its quality day by day.
There are still bigger names to deal with like -‘ozone layer depletion’, ‘global warming‘, ‘depletion of natural resources‘, ‘nuclear energy‘.
Threats are many but how to counteract them? How should we save this planet from devastation?
Not only we should criticize, since we are a part of this planet, we have to learn how to work towards making this planet a better place. Our ultimate goal should be to save this planet.
There are numerous ways to go about solving this issue. I will be suggesting some. Rest of them I would like to get suggestion from your end.
Since I strongly believe that the audience should actively participate with the person making the speech.
- Firstly, I would recommend the use of bicycles or walking to places that are easily within reach. It will keep you fit as well as produce less pollution.
- The sewer lines should be fitted with filters that will check the quality of waste before dumping it into rivers
- Use of lights and fans only when needed.
- Not using harmful fertilizers and pesticides during cultivation
- Not depending too much on underground water sources
These are few methods which I have listed, which will help to save the planet.
There is no superman to save the planet. This planet is our responsibility. So, we have to take immediate steps towards this venture.
