 Human Chain Formed By Bihar Students to Spread Environmental Awareness

To spread awareness about the need for protecting the environment and conservation of natural resources students from different schools and colleges formed a human chain here.

Bihar Earth Day was organised as part of their effort to generate awareness among masses to protect the environment.

One of the participants, Radha, said: "The main aim behind this campaign is to spread awareness among the masses about the cutting of trees and only 7 percent of the green cover area has left. According to National Forest Survey there should be at least 33 percent of green cover area or minimum 23 percent, but it is sad to say that only seven percent is left. We are celebrating earth day to spread awareness among people so that they start planting more trees. As it is the monsoon season even if every person plants a sapling then it will be of great help."

Students raised slogans and held placards reading 'Save Earth and Plant Trees'.

Another participant, Stuti, said: "We are forming a human chain to make people know about the need to conserve our trees, save water and protect our land resources."

Green economic growth rather than strict targets for cutting greenhouse gases needs higher priority if the world is to reach a deal to fight climate change by a 2015 deadline.

Despite growing scientific evidence of a warming world, greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise and United Nations talks aimed at doing something about it are moving at a glacial pace.

Years of talks have failed to deliver a deal to replace the Kyoto Protocol, which set emissions targets for industrial nations. And despite agreement last year to set up a fund to raise aid for poor nations to help them cope with the effects of climate change, it took until last week just to decide who would sit on its governing panel.

Emissions of carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas, rose 3.1 percent in 2011 to a record high, 2011 was the 11th warmest year since records began in the mid-19th century and the decade ended in 2010 was the warmest, U.N. data showed.

Under current climate goals, rich nations have promised to cut emissions by 2020 while developing nations led by China and India are seeking to slow the growth of their emissions. Both sides fear restraints will hamper their economic progress.
