Description

Summary

Dear Friends,

Climate Change is a reality in the modern world. The earth is sufficient to fulfill human being's need,but insufficient to fulfill his greed. Due to human's over exploitation of natural resources and emission of green house gases the world has become an unsafe place for the future generations. Climate related changes are posing great threat to human health and well beings. The UNISDR reported that 87% of disasters in 2014 were climate related and all disasters between 2005 and 2014 caused human impacts i.e. 700,000 deaths and a total of 1.7 billion affected people, economic losses of US$ 1.4 trillion. WHO (2014) estimated that climate change will cause approximately 250,000 additional deaths per year, from malnutrition, malaria, diarrhoea and heat stress between 2030 and 2050. People affected by climate change may experience rapid onset climate events such as extreme weather conditions or slow onset climate phenomena such as drought, decertification, land degradation on sea level rise. All these factors will give rise to population movement to safer place. The climate migrants may pose threat to all countries in the near future. The Human Development Report notes that failure to address the climate change problem will consign the poorest 40% of the world’s population “to a future of diminished opportunity.” As a common man, i can not change policies designed by the politicians, all that i can do is to plant a tree each day till the end of my life, as mark of contribution in the protection of the planet..

What actions do you propose?

 Dear Friends,

One tree one day should be a mission of life.

We cleared the forests, raped the earth, looted its natural beauty for our prosperity and better future... but what happened... this plunder of natural wealth could not provide us mental peace and happiness.  In fact, it has put the lives of our future generation in danger.

If the human being of any age group contribute one tree to this earth daily we can preserve the future world for the next generation. Tree planting can only make this world a safer place to live..

Who will take these actions?

Planting trees should be taken as a hobby.. It's no ones work. All human beings must plant one tree as a mark of respect to the mother earth. We can not depend upon the actions of the governments. They have their own interests. I request all individuals of the world to at least plant one tree for safe future. I started this work in 2010 and the mission is still on.It gives me satisfaction, mental peace and sense of pride for my contribution.One may not believe that i am growing rich receiving the fruits of nature and all that god gives me. It should be an individual initiative and not any organization or government contribution. We live in this world, depended on the natural resources for our development, it is our responsibility to save this planet.. And believe me TOGETHER WE CAN....

Where will these actions be taken?

Tree plantation is the necessity of the world today. All individuals residing on this planet are required to take up this endless mission in their own countries in their own local areas. No need to go any where, plant a tree at home . I am sure in another 30-40 years we will be able to bring change...

What are other key benefits?

 Protection of life on earth is the key benefit..

What are the proposal’s costs?

 love, affection and compassion towards the mother earth.... and concern for the future generation.... 

Time line

 One Day One tree is an endless mission... It can not be bounded in time frame. The individuals should take up this mission for life... Stop not until the last day...
