The Global Nature of Environmental Problems

Environmental problems doesn’t count boundaries while arriving, they impact the whole globe. And throughout the globe, we face the same complication.

Major environmental issues are pollution, of all kinds, air, water, soil etc; environmental degradation; resource depletion; climate change; wildlife extinction; ecological destruction; ecosystem disappearance and the list goes on.

And what sort of trouble we face because of this? We face extreme weather which causes death of around 150,000 people annually around the whole world; failure of climate change mitigation and adaptation for small and large animals/plants; environmental disasters such as oil spills and radioactive contamination that ultimately harms us; natural disasters and biodiversity loss which also affects the food chain; pollution problem that cause 12% of global death alone around the earth annually. 6-7 million deaths occur at an annual rate because of this. And this is not just mere a number, it’s a person who’s died. And even if people are alive, they are suffering from painful diseases. These facts tell a lot more about the situation of nature than it tells about us. It gives us a picture of how much destruction we have caused for our benefit and for our advantage.

But there are agencies, organizations and institutions that care about such issues named Environmental Protection Agency; European Environment Agency; United States Environmental Protection Agency; Office Of Environment and Heritage; Forest Survey of India etc. We must be thankful for these organizations as they are the ones who are bringing nature into its original state. They are the ones who are filling the voids that we have created. And it’s good to see that such kind of agencies exists throughout the globe.

We shouldn’t be pushing the constraints of nature or otherwise we are going to get a huge shock. Our lives will get disturbed and traumatic in upcoming times. We will face crisis. So it’s better to come up with solutions. There is an urgent need to resolve this issue in order to avoid damage.

We should stop overexploitation of everything we see as an advantage; stop over depletion of resources; stop overusing of natural hotspots; make strict laws regarding it; create awareness as much as we can; stop over using facilities like agriculture, fishing, cutting trees etc; stop plaguing our planet and sites; stop degrading making simple elements into complex chemicals that’s hard to break which ultimately causes toxicity; reduce wastes and use proper method of disposal; reduce emission and treat the industrial waste in prescribed manner; adapt the habit of planting trees and produce a healthy and safe and secure environment.

Though the cost will be huge if we do the good but if we don’t, the costs will we even more and beyond our reach. Countries like Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, UK, Russia, and Germany have already started this practice along with India, but it will be of no use if we all don’t contribute in this, if we don’t follow the rules and procedures, if we don’t implement the things as we should.

So don’t fell in the trap of desertification, instead, desertify this hassle.
