We are a fortunate generation! Fortunate because our previous generations couldn’t exhaust the natural resources that were available to them. The question which arises now is that when this generation is done using the resources, would anything be left for the generations yet to come?
The rate at which the global consumption of these resources is taking place is rather alarming. This rate is ever increasing with growing population. The United Nations has predicted that the world population would reach 9.7 billion by 2050 as compared to the existing 7.4 billion in 2016. The difference being 2.3 billion which is almost equal to the cumulative population of India and China.
These numbers are sufficient to make one realize the global chaos that could be created in the coming 20 to 30 years if we don’t act now. Thankfully, the world is moving ahead with sustainable technology and replacements but still there is a need to create a major global awareness about the same so that more and more people get directly involved in endorsing this.
Let us not take this whole scenario for granted and move towards a society that acknowledges the importance of the reserved resources. Let us keep the chaos waiting for as long as we can.
