National Pollution Control Day
“Today we’re dumping 70 million tons of global-warming pollution into the environment, and tomorrow we will dump more, and there is no effective worldwide response. Until we start sharply reducing global-warming pollution, I will feel that I have failed.” -Al Gore
In India, the National Pollution Control Day is observed every year on December 2 to commemorate the life of people lost in the unfortunate incident of Bhopal Gas Tragedy that occurred in the year 1984 on the night of 2–3 December.
National Pollution Control Day 2021 is celebrated by many people so that they can understand the effects of pollution and also stop the problems related to pollution. It is the day on which organizations from all over the world make sure that the people understand the effects of pollution in our day to day life and also the long-term effects of pollution which will make this earth a very tough place to live in.
The National Health Portal of India data reveals that around 7 million people die every year due to air pollution. The data also reveals that nine out of ten people globally do not have access to clean and safe air.
Taking this into consideration, this year's theme for the Pollution Control Day is to raise awareness about the importance of pollution control measures and to educate people on how to prevent pollution.
To make this world a better place we must have proper information related to the pollution index of our country and we must also take into consideration some practices that will help us to control the pollution that we are emitting in our ecosystem day by day.
