Just few days back, human beings have celebrated the “World Environment Day” where it was stressed by various environmentalists and related people like Jonathan Schrag that one should take proper care of the environment in whatever manner possible and save it from the harmful effects for the existence of the human beings in the coming years. One must understand the grave situation wherein our planet Earth is dying a slow death on a routine basis and need to be protected from all such harmful environmental factors turning into major issues and thus spoiling the environment of our planet.
The planet, Earth has an environment of its own consisting of different kinds of flora and fauna as well as the human beings forming a major part of the same with natural resources completing it to the core. All these natural resources must be used optimally and prudently without wasting any due to any of the reasons. The coming up of the new projects should avoid wastage of the resources as well as any kind of destruction to the environment to the maximum possible extent. The use of materials affecting the environment should be reduced or put to end for the betterment of the society as a whole.
Environmental issues affect the entire society and not just a single individual and thus must be paid due attention by one and all. The environmental issues affecting the world and which are being created by the human beings goes as below:
- Negative Effects of Pollution
Pollution has changed its form in the current times and is not restricted to just a few factors. It is the human beings who are the major source of pollution but are not ready to accept the fact and take preventive actions in order to avoid the destruction of the Earth. All kinds of pollution are bad for the environment and must be avoided as and when possible in whatever manner applicable.
- Changes in the Climate
Climate change is no more a natural process and weather changes can be seen due to the harmful effects created by the human beings. Because of which new diseases are occurring in the human beings and plants too are getting affected by the same leading to health issues for the human beings as well.
- Global Warming
Human beings are getting affected by the global warming and the undue change in the temperatures leading to a mix and match of various weathers during all seasons. Thus, the planet Earth is becoming difficult for the human beings to survive and make a living on the same. It should not be taken lightly at any costs at any point of time for all the good reasons.
- Cutting down of the trees
As the population is increasing day by day so the need for various resources is on the rise and is met by cutting down the trees and making space for one and all.
Thus, experts like Jonathan Schrag are of the view that the Earth, our sole and whole planet must be protected from the ill effects for the betterment of the society as a whole.
