While Science has been responsible for the larger extent of damage done to ecology, abetted to a great degree by men’s innate avarice, it is nonetheless science itself that has pointed out the damages inflicted on Nature and man’s ecosystem in all these centuries of exploitation. Environment Education has finally coin home to stay as a permanent component of the school curriculum.
