Introduction The anthropogenic impact on the environment is one of the main contributors to the ecological crisis. The […]. Large-scale deforestation, or forest clearing, has been understood for years to cause great loss in biodiversity Foley et. Within the Amazon Rainforest specifically, deforestation is a huge issue that has many hidden ramifications often overlooked by policymakers. Pollution has become an ongoing problem throughout the Earth. From air pollution to waste pollution, the Earth is getting destroyed from the carelessness of others.
In order to meet the basic needs of increases population, the present society has under taken a series of steps like rapid industrialization, unplanned urbanisation, deforestation, overexploitation of natural sources, etc. The outcomes of the above human activities have contributed significantly to the degradation of environment around us. In order to provide timber and farm land to increased population, large number of forest trees are cut and forest area is converting to farm lands. The rate of deforestation is so faster that around 1. The process of deforestation results in decreasing rainfall, increasing global temperature, loss of top soil, modification of climatic conditions etc. Although the industrial activities of man provide basic need of the society, simultaneously the same release a lot of pollutants to the environment. The pollutants in environment cause loss of raw materials, health hazards, increase in death rate, damage to crop, making environment unfit for living organisms etc.
By harnessing energy from the sun, dependence on more environmentally harmful sources as oil and coal can be decreased. This is a great alternative to these nonrenewable resources. Solar energy reduces the destruction of pristine forests.
Pollution of the greenhouse gases is one of the biggest factors that cause it. These greenhouse gases carbon dioxide, methane from landfills , fossil fuels, nitrous oxide from fertilizers, and lastly carbon monoxide, all of these gases warm and hurt the atmosphere. Global warming is warming of the regions and that is what causes the severe weather and melting of the ice caps.
