OUR POLLUTED PLANET
Pollution is destroying our planet.
It is everywhere; in our rivers, oceans, land and air.
"Plastic is suffocating our earth. It has become one of the greatest environmental issues of our time."
"Myanmar desperately needs more electricity.
The question is how will we get it?"
As well as hydropower, fossil fuels like coal, gas and oil are being used to meet the energy deficit. These fossil fuels are bad news for people and nature. They are dangerous to harvest, cause deforestation, and pollute our air and water.
“A boom in industry has lead to a spike in air and water pollution."
Everyone has a role to play in solving this problem. Together, we can protect our planet from pollution.
