  • SDG 14 is ‘Life Below Water :Plastic pollution. Increasing levels of debris in the world’s oceans are having a major environmental and economic impact. Marine debris impacts biodiversity through entanglement or ingestion
  • SDG 14 is ‘Life Below Water :Coastal waters are deteriorating due to pollution and eutrophication. Without concerted efforts, coastal eutrophication is expected to increase in 20 percent of large marine ecosystems by 2050.
  • SDG 14 is Life Below Water :Ocean acidification has increased significantly in recent decades. Open Ocean sites show current levels of acidity have increased by 26 per cent since the start of the Industrial Revolution.
  • SDG 14 is Life Below Water :Oceans absorb about 30 per cent of carbon dioxide produced by humans, buffering the impacts of global warming.
  • SDG 14 is Life Below Water :Oceans provide key natural resources including food, medicines, biofuels and other products. They help with the breakdown and removal of waste and pollution, and their coastal ecosystems act as buf

GLOBAL WARMING, A SERIOUS THREAT TO THE FUTURE GENERATIONS

Global warming is caused by an excess of carbon dioxide and greenhouses gases in the atmosphere.

In Earth's atmosphere, there is a portion of the ozone layer. It consists of different layers and is made up of nitrogen, oxygen. The ozone layer is very important as it helps to protect earth from ultraviolet radiation.


There are three main important types of ultraviolet radiation. They are UV-A, UV-BUV-C.
In the above three layers, UV-C is the most dangerous to humans, if we didn’t get protected from that layer it will be difficult for humans survival. Because of UV-B, there will because of skin cancer and sunburns.

Nowadays, we are coming across a lot of changes in the climate, due to high pollution. There is a saying “prevention is better than cure”. So our government, people of India and around the world should consider this as a serious threat as it costs crores of lives.
We should concentrate more on planting trees as much as possible, decreasing usage of plastic as it doesn’t degrade easily. Industries have to take necessary measures because of industries releasing poisonous gases and polluting the air. Because of all that air is getting polluted and there is a formation of thick smoke, which causes respiratory problems.

Change cannot be done overnight, but it’s high time to think about our own earth, climate.If climate shows its extreme side, there will be no humankind on this planet.
