The above statistics if it is anything to go by is very staggering and very disappointing as someone who is soo much interested in the environment something is fundamentally wrong with us as a nation and our policy makers. I don't subscribe to the idea of putting the blame squarely at the door step of the policy makers. There is the urgent need for a change in attitude and mindset. As a Lecturer in environmental studies my humble opinion is that policy makers cannot on their own bring abou the desired change it takes the bold initiative to support the government to achieve a green environment by first and foremost recognizing the enormity and the of the problem at hand is the only surest way by which we can become environmentally conscious.After all the president of America opined that he does not belief in the concept of Global warming

As an environmental activist in Ghana, it breaks my heart to see stats like these. Our attitude towards sanitation must change. The fact that you pay tax does not mean litter or incinerate in the open.
Timber & Wood industries must control their wood dust!
A lot has to be done and we need realistic policies and enforcement.
