Description
Despite political squabbles and consequent struggle between the developed, developing and under-developed nations competing with each other to sustain or nature consumptive lifestyles, the numerous and endless deliberations at the earth summits, conferences, declarations and protocols have nevertheless, to an extent, resulted in at least a recognition that the finite resources of the planet and its delicate ecology are at the drink of breakdown and urgent measures here and now, are necessary if the planet is to sustain life in a historic time frame.
The galloping increase of population, mindless industrialisation and destructive developmental practices across the globe have brought in its wake irreversible damage to our biodiversity. Air, Water and Noise Pollution have increased to dangerous levels. Many parts of the globe face chronic shortage of fresh water. World over forests are declining at an alarming pace leading to climate changes and spread of newer and hitherto unperceived ailments, droughts and floods.
In the context of an apathetic or inadequate legislative and executive response, an active judicial management of pollution problems has resulted in sporadic solutions to the problem of environmental degradation. The problem, however, is so acute that episodic solutions are inadequate. Concerted measures by Governments across the globe coupled with imminent legislative and executive measures to halt further degradation, is the need of the hour.
In spite of the gigantic environmental protective measures promoted by man over three decades of period, neither the warming of the earth is put at naught, nor the growing abnormal incidents of atmosphere are reduced with the available scientific and technological knowledge. The past 2004 period is the worst hit periods in the known human history since the 20th Century. It has witnessed a 'Tsunami' and a 'Hurricane', besides
a number of'Earthquakes' and Cyclones' resulting in the death or the disablement of millions of people and loss of billion worth of properties elsewhere in the World. Apart from that conflict, terrorism coupled with attacks of human bombs, unknown diseases, etc. have become order of the day somewhere or the other parts of the World. Nature has become unnatural causing adverse impact on the atmosphere on the one side and the health and safety of all the living and non-living things on the other side. The ecosystem is echoing with abnormal noises, vibrations dust and smoke to human activities.
A bird's eye view of the available literature as also the various judicial decisions on the subject of environmental protection, speaks evidently in volumes about the fact that the real awareness in this subject has been geared up during the recent past only because of the keen and assertive interest and painful concern shown by the Hon'ble Apex Court through series of its landmark judgments, in various Public Interest Litigations filed by private individuals or bodies who are keeping a constant vision on the growing environmental and other national problems that are arising quite against the Governmental policies and programmes as also the Constitutional, Environmental and other laws of the land.
The compendium contains various legislations regulating environmental pollution as also a compilation of the relevant rules and allied statutory instruments. Rules made by various States afford a comparable study of the regulatory environment in those States which is a useful feature. Included in the appendices to the compendium are the international declarations, mandates, conventions, protocol and statements of principle which provide the context within which the legislations and statutory instruments could be understood.
The gravity of the pollution warrants intense implementation of at least the existing laws. Vigorous education and Public Interest Litigation would assist some measure of implementation. In this context these two volumes of the Lal's Encyclopaedia on Environment (Protection) and Pollution Laws would serve as a useful vehicle of information and a reliable source of reference for the various acts, rules and executive instruments and would inform concerned persons as well the Executive, the Bench and the Bar.
