Our planet, our home is in trouble. Barrack Obama said: 'We are the first generation to feel the effect of climate change and the last generation who can do something about it.' Many of us know it already. But I see different levels of commitment to the cause.

Some people still don't really care. They are still committed just to their own convenience. And if they belong to the 'rich' society, they are still the fortunate ones who have not yet faced the consequences of environmental degradation. There is another section of people who take actions only when the negative impacts come and knock on their own door, affect their own lives.

On the other end of the spectrum, there are some people who have dedicated their lives to helping the environment. And then there are some other people who would do their own bit sincerely and then some. Some of them lack the required awareness or knowledge to understand how all our actions affect the environment. But once they know, they would try everything to change their way of life.

What makes me hopeful is the last group of people. I see this group steadily growing over time. I hope in coming years this group grows to a sizable population to actually make a positive change. The change needs to happen and it needs to happen soon.
