Earth Day: Place Earth over profit, says iGP


Press Statement

Unchir-Dunktok, Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand, 22 April 2023: The India Greens Party (iGP) today emphasised on placing the planet over profit, adding that only a green future can be a secured future.

In a press statement issued on the occasion of the Earth Day today at its national head office (NHO) here, the iGP said it is vital to restore Earth’s damaged ecosystems. It is the most important investment we can ever make.

The Earth Day provides an opportunity to raise global public awareness of the challenges to the well-being of the planet and all the life it supports. The Day also recognises a collective responsibility to promote harmony with nature and the Earth, to achieve a just balance among the economic, social and environmental needs of the present and future generations of humanity.

“Climate crisis caused by human meddling with nature has disrupted the ecosystems that support all life on Earth. We must dedicate ourselves to restoring the damaged ecosystems to combat climate change, stop mass extinctions, and eradicate poverty,” urged the iGP.

The Gaia Theory formulated by the scientist James Lovelock, which sees Earth as a self-regulating living superorganism, is relevant now, as we face climate collapse. A healthy ecosystem will help in protecting the humans from several diseases, the party added.

“If humanity does not adopt lifestyles that respect the planetary web of life, the Gaian planetary organism might treat the human species as a disease-causing agent, resulting in our extinction. So, we must live in harmony with Nature and Earth for our survival itself,” the party asserted.

“Time is running out. We must take proactive action to preserve and protect our planet. Everyone is accountable including businesses, governments and citizens,” the Green party in India pointed out.
