While speaking, Sharma stated that the increase in pollution and damage caused by humans are affecting our planet so rapidly that it is threatening for our survival. By highlighting the adverse effects of high consumption of fuel energy, he directed the students about the repercussions that would lead to climate change and global warming and indeed demanded equal contribution of humans to thrive for preserving what is still left to us.

He articulated the relevance of the said topic by citing the "Paris Agreement" that was signed by most of the world leaders and subsequent indulgence of UN in 2016 for Sustainable Development Goals - SDGs.

With an emphasis upon the limited resources available on the planet, he necessitated the judicious utilization of resources. He focused on three R's i.e. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle to conserve natural resources and landfill space.

He concluded by suggesting measures for saving the planet and therefore, how one should take conscious decisions to make the planet a better and sustainable place to live in.
