Environmental pollution is the present days biggest challenge to humanity. The study of the environment, besides being a natural and management science, is also a law. The very existence of mankind and other living and non-living things depend on Quality Environment. Though human beings occupy a special place on earth, they are not separate from it but form an integral part of it.
The misuse of the environment is the cause of the present civilizational crisis. Is it mainly due to our lifestyle viceswhich are alienating us from nature. The modern science and technology can serve their true purpose if only they are pro-environmental. Only a sensuous relationship with nature can save us and the environment.
The study of Environmental Law focuses this objective. A deep insight of these laws will certainly awake our conscience to the naked realities of environmental pollution. The knowledge we gain must reorient our attitude and activities towards pro-environmental. The aim and purpose of the study of Environmental Law will be better served by not merely acquiring a qualification in the subject, but in disseminating the knowledge to one and all so that everyone realizes, Earth and Environment do not belong to man, but man belongs to them- Earth should not be overexploited/polluted by the present generation, but should be sustained for the healthy living of future generations. The environmental study is a complex subject – a science, a management study and a law. This study is made simple by this book so that everyone can grasp the subject easily and thoroughly.
Priority has been given to meet the examination requirements for all law students, not only by majorly covering the syllabus but also by providing answers to previous year university questions and Problems. We fervently hope that this book will fully cater to the expectations of the student community and legal fraternity.
As regards the problems, we have published a separate book Environmental law – Solved Problems(Volume-II) with answers for approximately 100 problems.
