Before apes evolved into humans, nature had a balance for every living and non-living thing that existed in its lap. Every living thing adapted itself to nature, using it for shelter and food, and contributing back to it in many ways. Then man arrived, and considering itself the most intelligent of all, started exploiting nature to the fullest. While others lived in and on the trees, man cut down trees for shelter. While others ate everything raw, man invented fire to cook and roast. And thus it started polluting the environment. Slowly machines and industries evolved, and they started disposing their waste in water, air and land. Agriculture also saw a huge transformation with the advent of inorganic chemicals, that produced more from the same soil, but in turn rendered it un-fertile in the long run. But who cared about the long run? Man tried to exploit the present to the maximum, and is still continuing doing so.
RESULT: Today, all that we inherited pure from the apes, has been poisoned to the hilt. With air becoming unbreathable, water undrinkable and land uncultivable, we are rapidly and steadily moving towards the ice-age again. We have already wiped out many species, will wipe out others soon, and get wiped out too.
Common man blames Industry, Industry blames Law enforcers, Law enforcers blame the Government, and Government blames the common man for creating Pollution. Pollution has remained a blame game only.
So in People's Court, the participants will play different roles as mentioned above, and unwrap the past, present and future of Pollution. The judges and the people (audience) will decide the course of action to be followed by each role, to eliminate pollution.
