How to Help Save Planet Earth

As more and more humans inhabit the earth and use its resources, those resources and the planet are being depleted every day. A point may come in the future that Earth would no longer remain habitable for humans and even animals. In order to prevent that from happening, we need to take steps, however small, to help conserve our planet. Following are some ways we can do our bit in this regard.


Conserve water

The wellbeing of the planet is affected in a major way by the wastage of water by us. We can take small steps to stop wasting water like turning off the tap while brushing teeth, using less water in the shower, washing only full load of dishes and laundry, etc.

Drive Less

If you don’t drive your car only two days per week, you’ll decrease greenhouse gas production by an average of 1,590 pounds (721 kilograms) annually [source: EPA]. Stack up your tasks and do them in one ride, like go to the post office, grocery store and clothes shopping in one trip. You will save fuel and time.

Also, walking or biking your way to work, school, or anywhere can lessen greenhouse gases while simultaneously using up calories and boosting your health. If that’s not possible, using mass transit or carpool also makes a positive impact.


A lot of trash is produced by humans annually when we throw away newspapers, leaves, woody materials and left-over food from the kitchen. Compost is an exceptional natural fertilizer. And the process is simpler than you would imagine. Rather than throwing away the aforementioned trash, compost them in a container or a heap. After nurturing the stack for some weeks, you’ll have rich earth for your grass or to create a luscious vegetable garden.

Use less heating and air-conditioning

It is not possible to stop using air conditioning and heating in extreme weather conditions however you can make small changes like maintain your thermostat at higher temperature in summer and at lower in winter. It is also a good idea to insulate your home as much as possible to reduce the need for artificial heating and cooling. Additionally, we can plant trees to cover our homes and substitute old windows with energy efficient ones. Energy-saving light can be used to conserve energy and money. Switching off lights, computers and other appliances when not being used also goes a long way to conserve energy.

So, follow these tips and help save the planet!

What Does Jupiter Mean To Earth – Protector or Aggressor?

Our universe is a peculiar place with loads of surprises lurking around, only to reveal themselves as we keep digging into their reality. The planet Jupiter is one such being in our solar system that comes under debate way more often. At first, it was believed that this gigantic planet is a calm, composed, gentle being with little happening on it. This idea got replaced as the scientists discovered explosions occurring on its surface.

Similarly, another myth that prevailed was that Jupiter has been entirely benevolent for our planet Earth and keeping away the loose debris in our galaxy from reaching us. In 1994, this myth got stronger when Jupiter broke and consumed a comet on the way to crash on Earth. Jupiter’s extraordinary gravitational field is fully capable of deviating paths and directing objects roaming around nearby. But scientists have recently debunked this idea as well to some extent. Now it is studied that Jupiter does influence the motion of objects but it actually pushes them towards the inner orbits of the solar system where Earth happens to rotate. In fact, thanks to this moody giant, many a planetismals changed paths and collided to expand the size of our planet in the earliest times.


This sounds dangerous to get comets targeted towards Earth but it also had a very positive side. These masses carried many elements that contributed to the emergence of life. They carry Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Carbon dioxide etc. which are essential ingredients for living beings. These elements also help keep Earth warm and thus are much needed.

This finding made it more difficult for us, Earth dwellers, to decide whether Jupiter is a friend or foe for our planet.
