Nature has done a lot for us and is the most beautiful thing that has gifted us, but we, the youths, are destroying our nearby areas in the name of development. Instead of preserving our natural environment, we are harming aquatic life and bringing unknown pollutants into the air. As a result, the soul has lost its fertility, and the air we breathe contains the maximum amount of gases that are not safe. Due to this, we are facing respiratory problems and various other diseases.
It’s a plea to all the citizens to help in bringing the normal state of the environment.
The various environmental issues have been discussed below-
Global warming is one such condition where the temperature keeps on rising continuously. This happens due to climate changes which emit greenhouse gases.
Due to the rising temperature, the ice caps are melting and due to this island submerge.
This is a significant problem for the people residing near the islands. It leads to rising temperatures of the oceans and the earth’s surface causing natural disasters that include flooding, melting of polar ice caps, rise in sea levels, and also unnatural patterns of precipitation such as flash floods, hurricanes, wildfires, drought, excessive snow or desertification. This not only ruins the present life but has a significant impact on future growth.
Another problem that everyone is concerned about is deforestation.
This has reduced the level of oxygen in the nearby areas, and this reduces the lifespan.
The forests are the natural sinks of carbon dioxide and produce fresh oxygen, thereby maintaining temperature and regulating rainfall. However, due to overpopulation, there is a great demand for land, food, shelter, and other needs, due to which most of the forest is being cut down. Deforestation means clearing green cover and making that land available for residential, industrial, or commercial purposes. Together with if we contribute to progress, we can still plant more and more trees and stabilize the oxygen level.
Loss Of Biodiversity
The subsequent significant loss that the country is facing is the loss of biodiversity. Due to the fast-growing population, all the human activities are becoming distinct. It is leading to the extinction of species and habitats and loss of biodiversity. Earlier, where people used to preserve the biodiversity and prevent them from destroying are doing the opposite nowadays. The typical example nowadays is the destruction of coral reefs in the various oceans, which support the rich marine life. Therefore, loss of biodiversity will cause significant harm to our environment.
Pollution is one such environmental condition that is faced by all. The types of pollution include air, water, soil, noise, radioactive, light, and thermal. All the kinds of pollution are interlinked to each other and affect the environment. They harm all the aquatic life, biodiversity, and even human beings. one can solve the problem if together everyone takes the initiative to preserve the resources and prevent spoilage. For example, industry and motor vehicles exhibit some pollutants that affect the nearby areas, and the smoke that moves in the air harms the birds. If everyone desires to contribute and take the initiative to remove the pollutants, we can prevent a significant loss.
These problems are being faced nowadays, which needs to be controlled at the earliest. If each one contributes a little day by day, we can preserve our biodiversity and improve our future lives. Afforestation has helped a lot in stabilizing the oxygen level.
