Kamal Meattle starts off by telling the audience of his
illness. His doctors told him that his Lung Capacity had gone down by 70
percent and that he was slowly being killed by this. Though through extensive
research he was able to find with the help of NASA that there are three basic,
common plants that can grow all the fresh air we need to help us keep healthy.
He then talks about the three plants, which are named Areca
Palm, Mother in Laws tongue and the Money Plant. He goes on to say that you
need four shoulder height plants to make to experiment function properly for
each person. In his building in Delhi he has over 1200 for his 300 employees
and there building has been voted the healthiest building in India. Also the
statistics of medical problems have shown that the signs of things from
sleeping poorly to headaches have dropped severely.
Kamal finishes of by telling the audience Why is this important? It is also important for the
world's energy requirements
are expected to grow by 30 percent in the next decade.
40 percent of the world's energy is
taken up by
buildings currently, and 60 percent of the world's
population will be
living in buildings in cities with a population of over one million
in the next 15 years. And there is a growing preference for
living and working
in air-conditioned places.
