The Dark Earth

In the past few recent years, a tremendous revolution in the industrialization sector in developed countries has led to immeasurable and the most damaging effects on the environment. This contagious necessary evil has extended to the third world countries who are fighting to live up to the level of these developed nations. It is with deep regret that only a few individual countries are up to the fight to once again bring life back to the once vibrant environment. At this rate, it is plausible to foresee a dark planet which screams for mercy to breathe again.

In Kenya for instance, and specifically our capital-Nairobi, environmental conservation is a major setback that has robbed the city of the clean vicinity, air as well as a noise-free city. The rot that has masked the city is a Herculean task to handle. In this regard, the National and County governments should be put to task and explain or at least come up with concrete ideas to refresh the city once again.

It goes without saying that the rot that is eating up both Nairobi River and the Dandora dumpsite exposes the kind of poor sanitation we are living in. That said, cleaning and keeping our environment and city should be a prime responsibility of all and sundry. The government should be lauded for banning the plastic bags that were choking our environment. It is encouraging that the governments of East Africa Nations have taken the same initiative.

On the other hand, it is of the essence to sensitize the people on various ways to ensure that environment remains habitable for all organisms. This should be made possible by mobilizing masses to support the government in its efforts of conservation. To encourage them to embrace environmental conservation, the government should strengthen them by providing facilities such as bins in strategic positions which serve to collect garbage, Garbage collected should be separated into organic waste, plastic waste thus being easy to recycle.

Through conservation, we will enjoy favorable climatic conditions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Environmental pollution by carbon sources is also another worrying factor that has continued to inflict wounds in our precious nature. It is sickening to live in a city where the filth of smoke and smog are a part and parcel of our otherwise clean air. This has been contributed by rapid industrialization as well as automobiles which have seen bad days but still operating on the roads. The government must move swiftly to salvage the worrying trend of the carbon and its products which has played a big role in choking our environment. A better solution and which seems saner than the use of fossil fuel is the adoption of the green energy. The industries are encouraged to adopt the use of solar-powered engines to avoid depletion of the ozone layer which has drastic impacts on the environment.

The immediate resultant effects of these carbon sources in respiratory diseases which affects human beings. Another immediate effect is the contamination of the water sources which could lead to various ailments due to poison in the water. The National Assembly should enact laws which regulate the use of the fossil fuel in order to conserve our environment.
In conclusion, conservation is the heartbeat of our existence and our prime responsibility is to keep it in its appealing nature.
