    Jun 12 2013: Yes we should care because at the end of the day or someday we all get affected. There should be more awareness program ,people to be taught the effect and how it affects us all even if it happens elsewhere. People are spilling oil in to the seas and lakes,emitting waste from industries in the air destroying the ozone layer at the end you and I get affected. But at the end of the day it is you and me to protect the environment.
