On World Environment Day you hear a speaker urge for a million buses on India's roads and a billion solar pannels on roof tops . Write an article in about 100-120 words to state that protection of the environment is not done by multiplying but by other means .

Such questions are meant to test your writing skills and should be attempted on your own. However, these points might help you elaborate:

- There is urgent need for us to protect our environment.
- Abuse and over-use of resources has polluted the environment.
- The solution lies in the mantra of  'reduce, reuse and recycle'.
- The fumes emitted from vehicles on the roads, the toxic gases from factories, the waste thrown by industries into water bodies, felling of trees, construction of concrete jungles: all these add to pollution and degradation of the environment.
- Alternate sources of energy must be explored: solar panels, windmills, water harvesting plants, etc.
- At the same time, public transport should be used instead of individual vehicles.
- But, we must keep a keen eye on the number of vehicles, even if they are public transport buses: they use precious fossil fuel and emit harmful fumes.
- The population too must be controlled to create less pressure on our environment.
