One of the well remembered quotes of the Nobel laureate and renowned environmentalist Wangari Maathai says "If you destroy Nature, Nature Will Destroy you" .
While many people especially those in business in industrial development see huge financial gains in what they do, the larger population especially in Africa unfortunately has to bear the huge effects of environmental degradation without having necessarily directly contributed to its destruction. Leadership that has direct gains from the environment has not taken much interest in protecting the only source of livelihood for the existence of humanity.
