Did you know 2014 was the hottest year on record .  Did you know the first 4 months of 2015 has been hotter than even 2015.Did you know 9 out of 10 hottest years of all time have happened since 2000. Will I get impacted by Environmental Damage?  Why Should I be bothered? Can one person make a difference? Yes you can.

Most parts of India faced severe heat wave conditions for the past month or so killing more than 2000 people.  The earth is for sure warming thanks to the actions of mankind.  We inherited this earth from our forefathers, we have no right to destroy it, we owe it to our Children.

Small initiatives from each of us could go a long way in ensuring the earth is a better place to live in.
