7 Environmental Problems We Are Facing Today
The environmental problems that we are currently facing are all
man-made; we may not be aware of it but it is a fact that we
have ignored because we are too busy with our daily routine that
sometimes our lack of awareness have affected the environment.
First among the environmental problems that we have to consider
is the global warming. This is caused by the green house gases
that are emitted by our cars, factories and chemicals that trap
the heat from the sun making our surroundings hotter. We should
be aware that global warming is also one of the reasons why we
have cyclones and tropical storms that are stronger than what we
have previously experienced. Global warming is also gradually
increasing the sea level by melting the ice caps. People who are
not aware of this will not be alarmed but we can already feel
the consequence of this Phenomenon.
Second is the ozone layer degradation, chemicals that are
present in various household or cosmetic products such as spray
net for hair grooming have contributed to the degradation of the
ozone layer; exposing us to direct heat of the sun in a level
higher than we experienced.
Third is deforestation, the development of nations and cities
requires land and constant conversion of real estate. Although
efforts are being taken to improve on this condition like the
establishment of forest reserves, the rate of recovery from
deforestation is slower than the ongoing occurrence of
Fourth among the environmental problems that we have to
consider is species extinction. Our constant development
requires that particular areas where there are rare animals with
a short survival rate have to be suited with our requirement to
expand and develop and most of the times we ignore the
importance of these rare species.
Fifth among the environmental problems that we have to consider
is water degradation. The more forest we lose the faster rate we
will experience water degradation. Someday water will be more
expensive than petrol. We should remember that water is one of
our life support, we used to drink water for free. But now if
you will notice, bottled water is becoming a necessity and the
cost is gradually increasing.
Sixth among the environmental problems that we have to consider
is global poisoning, factories do not just emit gasses that warm
mother earth they also produce solid and liquid wastes or toxins
as part of their operational processes and a lot of these
factories do not have monitoring or environmental precautionary
Seventh among the environmental problems that we have to
consider is human and cultural degradation, indigenous people or
natives to certain places are maintaining their culture and are
reminding us of our origins and our ways are being invaded by
our modern culture. The reason why we have so much disaster in
our environment is that we have forgotten the essence of our
existence. The environmental problems that we are facing are
actually interconnected and only we can do something about it,
because we were the ones who created it in the first place.
