  • 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

 What If Trees Provide Us Free Wi-fi? 

Date of Publish - Saturday, 9th December 2017

What if trees provided free Wi-Fi?

Free Wi-Fi sounds trendy right? Yes it does! Like, you are passing by a railway station, you will definitely find a gathering of people who are just sitting or lingering near the station just to use free Wi-Fi. But have you ever seen a group of people protecting a tree while passing by a national highway. You may have! But the first scenario is much more common to us.


Trees do not provide us free Wi-Fi they just provide oxygen! Imagine if trees gives us free Wi-Fi, we’d all be planting like crazy. Its pity they only give us the oxygen we breathe. We are so busy in this corporate world. We can live our life without going out of our house for a whole day but can you imagine you have spent the whole day without checking your mail? Internet has provided us a bunch of utilities but what about Mother Nature? She has provided us life! Only Trees can provide us oxygen and reduce the amount of carbon dioxide, which is a major green house gas, from the atmosphere of earth. I am not at all telling that we should not use free Wi-Fi or internet but we must be aware of the global problems as well.

Using mobile or internet we can collect signatures to fight against global warming but can we really do something worthy just by sitting at home or by posting on social media. It is now even scientifically proved that trees can only fight the global warming.

Climate scientists working for the IPCC believe human-induced global deforestation is responsible for 18-25% of global climate change. It’s time to raise our voices for the mother earth. What we are doing to the environment is a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another. India stands ninth in the whole world in tree plantation but contributes 23-30% in the global pollution.

Tree plantation is one of the easiest steps humans can take to save the earth. It costs nothing. Trees can be planted anytime anywhere. The saplings only need a little care. Whereas the full grown trees need protection. Just remember the days of Bishnoi movement. Bishnoi villagers sacrificed their lives to save trees, in the year of 1730. Can you imagine people dying only because they will not let the industrialists to destroy their loveliest forest? So the trees may not provide us free Wi-Fi but they provide us everything we need to survive on this earth!

We are at ninth place but we can be the champions so keep planting trees not for free Wi-Fi but for free oxygen!
