What is the theme of Earth day 2019?


Earth day is the annual event celebrated worldwide on 22nd April every year. On every year, one theme is decided for earth day and the theme of 2019 earth day is to protect and save all the species. The Earth Day, founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson. He had been a witness to the devastation caused by an enormous oil spill in Santa Barbara, California in 1969 propounded the idea to celebrate the earth day. The first earth day was organized in 1970 to promote natural balance and respect for life on the planet as well as to encourage awareness of the growing problems of air, water, and soil pollution. On the International earth day, various environmental issues like pollution of the ocean, debris left over on land, climate change, conservation of the Earth’s ecosystems, energy conservation, soil corruption, corrosion, overpopulation, nuclear issues, the depletion of the ozone layer, the depletion of the Earth’s natural resources etc. are addressed.

The theme for Earth Day 2019


The theme for earth day 2018 was to end the plastic pollution and the theme of this year (2019) earth day is to protect and save all the species. In order to maintain a healthy ecological balance on this planet, all other species such as animals, plants, and marine are as important as humans.  All species on this planet has a unique place in the food chain that contributes to the ecosystem in its own way. The extinction of species occurs due to the naturally occurring activities and as well as human activities. The most common natural activities affecting the species are climate change, change in sea levels etc. Human activities like fishing, hunting, cut down of forests, use of fertilizers in the land; cutting trees etc. are the main reason for the extinction of these species.

We already saw the extinction of several species like the white Cheetah, Dinosaur, Dodo, Passenger Pigeon etc and several others animals are very close to see the extinction. Most common animals are rhinos, elephants, lions, tigers, leopard, jaguars, whales, sharks etc. It is necessary to take the strict action to save wildlife; otherwise, the time will come soon when they will find a place only on the list of extinct species. The extinction of such species will impact the human as well so it becomes the great responsibility of every human being to save the wildlife, our planet and most importantly, our own selves.

Why should we obey traffic rules?


Road safety is emerging as a major social concern in the country and obey the traffic rules become the necessity of these days. In India, more than 150000 peoples are killed in the road accidents every year. Everyday peoples are dying on the roads due to reckless driving, over speeding, not wearing seat belt or helmet, drunk while driving etc.  The biggest mistake that we all do is to blame the government for all such road accidents.




 Being a responsible citizen, what are we doing to stop all these road accidents? Do we wear seat belt or helmet while driving? Do we not jump the red light? There are several questions strikes in our mind whenever we think about road accidents. One such question is how we can solve the problem of road accidents. The simplest answer to this question is to obey the traffic rules.




Here in this post, we are sharing traffic rules that need to be followed to stop all such accidents.

• It is always advisable to carry all the documents while driving. It includes licence, vehicle registration, pollution paper, permit etc.

Always wear your seat belt whenever you drive your Car. Wear the helmet when rides the two-wheelers. It is one of the basic traffic rules that need to be obeyed.

•  Follow all the traffic signals like traffic lights, over speed limit, no entry signal, all types of turns like left, right, U-turn etc. Always use the indicator while making the turn.




• If there is only single lane for the traffic of both sides, then drive to the left-hand side of the road and allow the opposite vehicles to pass on the right-hand side.

• If you want to overtake another vehicle, always do only from the right-hand side only. On the other hand, if another vehicle is looking to overtake your vehicle, allow them and give them passage to overtake.

• Don’t drive the vehicle after drinking.

• Don’t drive the vehicle in the zigzag direction. Also, avoid over speeding and reckless driving.

• It is always advisable to keep some distance from the vehicle in front of you. Sometimes situation arises to stop the vehicle suddenly and in such circumstances, this distance helps you to avoid all unnecessary hazards.

• The vehicle with overloading is always dangerous on the road. It is always advisable to avoid such situations.



• Use the horn and the lights of the vehicle wisely.

• Always take extra precautions while approaching road merger, intersections or a crossing. Make sure your vehicle does not cause any inconvenience to other vehicles.

• Emergency vehicles like ambulance, fire vehicles, police vehicles etc. must be allowed free passage and it is the responsibility of other drivers to allow them passage.

Here, I would like to share a story of one of my close friend who had lost his life due to the careless driving of another person. My friend was used to work for the welfare of women. He was fighting against the female molestation. One day when he finished his rally, he was standing on the footpath and discussing about the next event with his friends. In the meantime, one car came and collides with them. In this accident, my friend had lost his life and his two friends injured seriously. You know what the fault of car driver was. The car driver tried to overtake another vehicle from the left and suddenly found these three persons standing on the footpath. The life of my friend would have saved if the car driver had followed the traffic rules.




Point to remember, your life is very important for your friend, family; relatives etc. and think about them before violating traffic rules or taking risk of your life.

 

Conclusion

The problem of road accidents cannot be solved if we do not stop the violation of traffic rules. It depends upon all of us plus the government as well. Being a responsible citizen, let us take the pledge and start following traffic rules.

How the LED lights better for environment?


Light is one of the great discoveries of all time done by the scientist. The credit for the invention of lights goes to Thomson Edison.  The most common types of lights are incandescent lamps, gas-discharge lamps & LED lamps.  LED lights are widely used across the world and it has the potential to change the future of lighting in India.

LED lights are better for the environment as it offers several advantages not only to the end consumer but also to the environment as well. The two biggest environmental advantages of LED lights are its low energy consumption and long life. Due to these advantages, fewer LED lamps need to be produced, packaged, transported, used and ultimately disposed of in comparison of CFLs and incandescent lamps.


LED lights better for environment

It is one of the most energy efficient and continuously developing technologies and due to several advantages of LED lights, it is widely used in miscellaneous applications such as lighting, indicator in electronic appliances, automobiles, traffic signals etc. 


LED lights better for environment


What is LED

Light emitting diode (LED) is very well suited for the environment. It is a semiconductor device which produces the light when the electric current passed through it. It is an electrical light source that allows the flow of electric current in one direction only.  It is a two lead semiconductor device that emits light when activated. When suitable currents pass through the leads, electrons are able to recombine with holes releasing the energy in the form of visible light (Photons). 


LED lights better for environment


There are several materials used in the making of LED lights and the most commonly used materials listed below.  

•  Indium gallium nitride (InGaN) is used to produce blue, green and ultraviolet high-brightness LEDs.
•  Gallium phosphide (GaP) is used to produce yellow and green LEDs.
•  Aluminum gallium arsenide (AlGaAs) is used to produce red and infrared LEDs.
•  Aluminum gallium indium phosphide (AlGaInP) is used to produce yellow, orange and red high-brightness LEDs.

Properties of LED Lights

LED lighting is very different from other lighting sources such as incandescent bulbs and CFLs and characteristics of LED lights are as follows. 

•  The power of LED light is generally calculated in lumens, rather than watts. The higher the number of lumens, the more white light the bulb will emit.

•  LED lights provide a broad range of colour temperatures and options. Colour temperature is measured in Kelvin and the range of the temperature lies between 2700~6000 K.  If the temperature is near to 3000K, then it provides a yellowish hue, similar to the incandescent light bulb. On the other hand, if it close to 6000K, then the light of the colour would be cool white.

•  Colour Rendering Index or CRI is used to measure how well a light source renders colours. The scale of measuring CRI is 0~100 and if it is more than 80, then it is widely acceptable in the industry.

Advantages of LED Light over Traditional Light

LED lights are better for the environment and there are several advantages of LED lights. We are listing a few advantages of LED lights are as follows.

•  LED lights are energy efficient over traditional lights such as fluorescent and incandescent lights. More than 90% of the electricity is converted into light while only close to 5~10% electricity wasted as heat.

•  LED lights require less power for operation as high wattage traditional lights can be replaced by low wattage LED lights and there would be no change in the output of the light. The less use of energy demand less power from power plants hence decreases the emissions of greenhouse gases.

•  LED lights do not contain any toxic elements like mercury. LED lights are better for the environment as it helps us in protecting the environment from toxic waste produce by traditional lights.

•  The durability of LED lights is quite more and it requires very little maintenance in comparison of traditional lights.

•  The burning hour of LED light is very high thereby reducing the requirement of frequent replacements of lights. Due to the long burning hours of LED lights, the need to dispose of the old ones into the landfills reduces to a great extent.

•  The output of LED lights is highly focused and it is not scattered like traditional lights. Due to this functionality of LED lights, unwanted scattered lights are removed from the environment thereby reducing the Light Pollution.

•  The emission of greenhouse gases is very less from the LED lights to the comparison of traditional lights like fluorescent and incandescent bulbs.

•  LED lights are very well suited for both indoor and outdoor applications. These lights can withstand harsh conditions of outdoor environment. 


LED lights better for environment

Conclusion

We have seen several advantages of LED lights and based on the advantages we can easily conclude that, LED lights are better for the environment.
