Pollution is transcendental, and it is evident in the plethora of diseases, and the deaths that are associated with those diseases.

Our destruction of nature is hurting our own survival, on average, one new infectious disease emerges in humans every four months. Seventy-five percent of these infectious diseases comes from animals. The preservation of natural habitats will minimize infectious diseases. Trees play a critical role in sequestering greenhouse gases, through a process called biological carbon sequestration (BCS). This process is important in storing greenhouses gases in tree trunks and within the soil. At present extinction of many local species is taking place at an alarming rate. Restoring and preserving wildlife is an asset in the development of a healthy economy and by extension a healthy country.
