Environmental issues facing us today are as real as the world we are living in. The United Nations has become one of the most outspoken global bodies on the environmental issues currently threatening human civilization on earth. However, sadly, there are government officials that are denying the existence of any major environmental issues, thereby making it even more difficult to spread awareness.
But, whether you choose to believe it or not, the earth’s environmental issues are present and they are not going to vanish magically unless we do something about it. And, it doesn’t matter who you are and what you choose to believe, because if these issues are not controlled, we will be facing global extinction. That event will not discriminate between the rich and the poor, or the dark and white skinned.
Environmental Issues That You Need To Know About
So, what are these environmental issues that people are getting so worked up about? Well, if you didn’t know earlier, here’s what you need to know. There are numerous environmental issues that we need to be concerned about. Thanks to indiscriminate exploitation of nature and the natural resources, we face a time wherein unless we don’t start acting on the past mistakes, the future isn’t going to be too kind to us. So, what have we done, and what needs correction? Let’s find out.
Global Warming Control
No matter what you are being told, global warming is a real issue. If you don’t believe me, go ahead and check the satellite images of the polar ice caps. They are melting, and we will be drowned pretty soon if we are not going to do something about it. Those movies you have been watching about natural calamities and global apocalypse, the reality will be far worse than that and we won’t have a protagonist to save the day!
Reducing carbon footprint is essential if you are to reduce global warming. The less fossil fuel you use, the better it becomes for the environment.
It is said that the next World War will be fought over water. Yes, even with all the focus on control of petroleum and fossil fuel sources, it is potable water that is getting scarce. Remember the lines, “Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink”? That is going to be the future unless we act upon it today. Water conservation is essential and needs to be done right now. Just because you have a running water tap does not mean that you are safe from the water scarcity which is threatening numerous nations in the coming few decades. Yes, you read that right. The issue with water is here and it is not just knocking the door, but, banging it with all it’s might.
Environmental Issues Won’t Wipe Out Earth
Believe it or not, we need earth more than earth needs us. Environmental issues will simply wipe us away like nature has done a few times in the past. Mass extinction isn’t a new thing. It has happened in the past and can happen in the future, and earth will survive no matter what. It is we who need to find a way of survival!
