Planet Earth a page about OUR ENVIRONENT

This is our planet, Earth.We are the caretakers of Earth ,we don 't own the planet. And the planet does not own us.

“The environment is where we all meet; where all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing all of us share.” —Lady Bird Johnson




Did you know that that how we travel damages the Earth? The pollution from the cars mixes with our oxygen. When that happens our air becomes thick and we cant breath in it. I n India this has already happened.


  • Pollution is one of the biggest killers, affecting more than 100 million worldwide.
  • More than 1 billion people worldwide don’t have access to safe drinking water.
  • people die every day as a result of drinking unclean water.
  • The garbage dumped in the ocean every year is roughly around 14 billion pounds.
  • Pollution kills more than 1 million seabirds and 100 million mammals every year.

More agricultural land is used to raise cattle than all other domesticated animals and crops combined. A vegetarian diet requires two-and-a-half times less the amount of land needed to grow food, compared to a meat-based diet. Livestock in the UK eat more than half of the 20 million tonnes of cereal grown. That’s over 50% of wheat and 61% of barley. The whole food production process of farm-to-plate totals 30% of all global greenhouse gas emission.

The word ‘energy’ actually originates from the ancient Green word "energeia".

Energy can never be destroyed, only rearranged or changed. This is called the law of conservation.

Almost all types of energy are either ‘potential energy’ or ‘kinetic energy’.

The energy in lightning is potential energy and can be changed into light, sound and heat energy.

There are 2 types of energy – Renewable and Non-Renewable. 75% of the energy we use comes from non-renewable energy such as oil, fossil fuels, coal, natural gas and nuclear energy. These are energy sources that cannot be replenished if they run out. Our wish is that one day, the whole planet switches to using renewable instead. This is a type of energy that is not only environment friendly but is inexhaustible (well, it may run out but not for a very long time yet.) Examples of renewable energy are solar, water, bioenergy, ocea

1. Dr Baekeland devised the plastic as a possible man-made replacement for shellac, which was made from excretions of the kerria lacca insect.

2. The very first plastic was Parkesine, invented by Alexander Parkes in 1856. It cracked and was flammable, so was not a total success.

3. The word ‘plastic’ comes from the Greek plastikos, meaning ‘capable of being shaped and moulded.

4. That sense of ‘plastic’ has been recorded in English since the late 16th century.
