To answer this question we must first of all learn the meaning of the word “ecology”.
Ecology is a science which studies the relationship between all Forms of life on our planet with
its environment. This word came from the Greek “oikos” which means “home”. This idea of
“home” includes the whole planet: it’s population, the nature, animals, birds, fish, insects, all
other living beings and even the atmosphere around our planet. Do all of them live a happy and
healthy life in our Home nowadays? Unfortunately, it is not so. Indeed, many territories, water,
basins, lakes, rivers, seas, oceans – and the atmosphere are polluted with all kinds of
technological, agricultural, chemical, nuclear and other wastes. The intensive development of
sciences, industry and chemistry has made the pollution of our environment a global problem
which should be solved by all means.
Besides, rapid growth of our population (there are about 6 billion people living on our
planet now) needs more and more land, food, goods and modern conveniences for newly-born
people. The production of them in large amounts will greatly increase the pollution of the
environment. And what to say about the awful harm caused to our Home by nuclear tests, atom
bombs and accidents at our atomic power stations? Isn’t it high time to start solving this global
problem and to make our life in our Home happy and healthy?
