  1. Our planet is under serious existential threat due to constant dangers both from external factors and dangers from within. Living with a multitude of dangers, strategists, and planners perhaps we individual like to foster this debate to determine exactly who is to be held responsible: are we as one individual or it falls in government domain in its entirety. In this essay I will express the nature and scale of the problem and propose steps to reign in this burgeoning decay, affecting millions of lives on this planet.
    Firstly, threats, as strategists argue, are far more than just seen. Taking a holistic approach or introspection of our lifestyles, it is undoubtedly clear we as individuals are threatening our own lives. For instance, we prefer crowded cities over organic but simple lifestyles prevalent in rural areas. Resultantly, on one hand, the mass exodus from rural areas is causing not only too much congestion coupled with overburden on public services while at the same time, mushroom growth of housing schemes needing tremendous cutting down of forests and recreational areas reserved for a morning walk or fitness exercise. Similarly, our sedentary lifestyles are adding to our obesity and other cholesterol complications.
    With that being said, this matter being too serious in all its ramifications, Governments are responsible partly because they can discourage mass migration of people from rural areas to urban area by providing more infrastructure and other life amenities on their doorstep. Provision of quality education, availability of health services especially for elderly and the children are an effective strategy to discourage this trend, in general, contributing to external factors of environmental degradation. In addition, the introduction of lucrative tax collection over the excess of threshold emissions can, however, control environmental decay to a great extent.
    However efficient as it may be, it is not solely the responsibility of Government but us individuals to overhaul changes to our sedentary lifestyles, bring preference to walk over short distances, prioritize fitness exercise in the morning routine. Combined with public and private partnerships, we can mitigate the consequential effects of environmental degradation for our future generations.
