Professional and Students – Let us ACT before it REACTS

Scientists and environmentalists conducted various studies and concluded that the past 30 years has been the warmest period in the global history.”

A study conducted shows that Climate change is likely to lead to some irreversible impact on biodiversity. Approximately 20 to 30% of the species assessed so far are likely to face treat of extinction. We are also experiencing it in our day to day life, many of the birds and animals which we saw during our childhood days are not seen now. If we don’t wake up now then our children should be satisfied only to see these species in movies and.
