    IMPORTANCE
   We humans exist within the
    environment and are a part
    of the natural world.

   Like all other species, we
    depend for our survival on
    a properly functioning
    planet.

    our environment matter a
    great deal.                                6

   Life on earth began approximately 2.6 billion
    years ago since that, time has profoundly
    affected the planet.
   Since the emergence of life, numerous
    species of organism have evolved, flourished
    and died, leaving their fossils.
   From a biological view point, the ultimate fate
    of every species is extinction, therefore we the
    humans too will disappear.
   Among millions of organisms of different size,
    shape , color and mode of living man has
    become the dominant species in the
    biosphere by his ingenious brain power,
    articulated speech and language
                                                                    7

   Environment problems are as the result of the large
    number of human beings on the planet.

   Individual actions, summed over large number of
    people can influence the environment greatly.

   It has to be recognized that the basis of human power
    and superiority lies in his knowledge of environment.

   Individuals can involve themselves in many ways in the
    process of improving the environment.

   Similar to any social and political movement
    environmentalism encompasses a wide range of
    approaches.

   At an even deeper level, environmentalism encompasses a
    broad range of political and philosophical approaches.

   The emphasis of environmental science on a rational approach
    involving the application of scientific and technical information
    to understand conserve and manage the environment and its
    resources.

   We should not forget that we have a special environmental
    responsibilities to ourselves and to other fellow living beings.

   We have to conserve the environment not merely for the
    preservation of the rich biological diversity, natural resources or
    aesthetic value, but for sheer survival.                              10
