A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of the importance of the environment.
Google defines the environment to be “the surroundings or conditions in which a person, animal, or plant lives or operates.” It, in fact, comprises of both living and non-living elements within it.
Every single one of us here would surely have come across the various concerns that have been raised for the protection of the environment. However, have we ever paused to think why our environment is important and ought to be saved?
Firstly, without the environment, there would be no renewable and non-renewable resources our lives are impossible without. Secondly, the environment includes air, water, sunlight, and soil- which are crucial for our very existence. Again, our very food, be it plants or animals or cereals or pulses, will be non-existent in the absence of the environment!
The environment is thus what sustains life.
