With the human population growing rapidly, our natural environment is being destroyed at an alarming rate. One of the biggest issues facing the world is global warming, a phenomenon caused by fossil fuels produced through human activities such as burning coal to make electricity. The earth’s climate has changed dramatically over the past 100 years, with the average global surface temperature rising by around 1 degree Celsius. Global warming has caused significant changes to our environment. Natural disasters such as drought, flooding and mudslides have increased substantially over the past few decades.
Meanwhile, the explosive growth of the human population has meant that larger and larger areas of natural wilderness are being destroyed in order to accommodate more residential and industrial development. Hand-in-hand with this development has come an increase in the amount of pollution being released into natural ecosystems. Our oceans are becoming loaded with plastic waste and toxic runoffs. Our rivers and dams are experiencing the same fate, and our soil and air quality is deteriorating too. Without worldwide action, the decline will not be reversed.
Now it’s time to think about how we can help to protect Mother Nature.
WHAT CAN WE DO?
There are a number of small things that we can do to reduce our impact on the environment:
· Practice the concept of Reduce; Re-Use; Recycle to cut down on the amount of waste we produce.
· Use public transport or join a lift club in order to reduce our carbon footprint.
· Join a local environmental club that supports environmental issues, or form our own.
· Save as much water and electricity as we can.
· Pick up litter when we are done with an outing in a natural area.
