Eminent scientist and Director of CSIR-National Geophysical Research Institute NEERI, Dr Rakesh Kumar, called upon people from all walks of life to render their bit to achieve and sustain eco-balance. This was despite the pioneering measures being initiated by the government of the day that pertained to climate change and making environment livelier for future generations.

Dr Kumar made this observation while delivering a lecture on ‘climate, health, and water’ in the city. He underscored the importance of climate, water and health that could impact every living being. Projecting a damaging picture because of the abuse of nature’s bountiful by vested interests, he said that felling of trees in the name of urbanisation was the biggest bane across the globe.

Warning that deforestation could trigger a devastation all over, he cited the example of the massive deforestation in Nepal that led to floods in Bihar. Erosion of soil and air pollution were the prime cause for prevalence of pollution. He said that India still suffers from lack of pure potable water. This could be addressed if contaminated water is recycled in a scientific manner so that it could be purified and used for domestic purposes.

Meanwhile, he appreciated the efforts being taken by the government to ensure water conservation, although there was a compelling need to spread awareness in order to ensure that people also join in this mission. This would also make events like Earth Day celebrations more meaningful, he said while adding, “It is all in our hands.”
