Mother Earth

Do you love our home? Our Mother Earth? Then help us to reduce the pollution and reduce the effect of global warming. Help us save our home by doing the following:

Disposing our garbage properly- By disposing our garbage properly we can prevent soil contamination and we can prevent the deaths of animals and marine life. Many fishes dies because of garbage that contaminated their home.

Planting more trees- By planting more trees we can have more fresh oxygen and trees can help clean the air and prevent landslides and floods. Also the trees provides us food and also it is the habitat of some animals such as monkeys and birds.

Avoid burning garbage- Burning of garbage poses health risks to those exposed directly to the smoke. It especially affects people with sensitive respiratory systems, as well as children and the elderly. And burning garbage is one of the causes of global warming.

Disposing used chemicals properly- Chemicals used in contractions, hospitals, manufacturing, and laboratories contains heavy metals, radiation, dangerous pathogens, or other toxins. That can cause serious health issues. Toxic waste has become more abundant since the industrial revolution, causing serious global health issues.

By doing this, we can help mother earth and save ourselves. Because with Earth we wouldn’t have a home. We should start now before it’s too late. Our pollution is getting worst the more we wait.

The influence of humans to the environment

Pollution: Humans contribute to the pollution of water, sound, radiation, light and even soil pollution.This is due to many of the human activities like travel, power generation, industrial waste dumped into rivers, polyethylene waste, artificial methods used in agriculture, cell phones, wifi etc.This pollution is harmful not only to humans but also to animals and plants around. This pollution decreases the healthy life span.Hence we can see that there is an extinction of many types of birds, plants, marine animals etc. We can even notice many animals die due to consumption of polyethylene covers. This polyethylene cover pollution is the result of litter by human use of poly bags.Also, carbon emission is increased due to growth in vehicles and leading air, water and soil pollution.

 

Technology: Though technology is making lives of humans easier and comfortable. It poses a great threat to the environment. The threat is due to pollution, radiation hazards, exploitation of natural resources etc.Radiation hazard is increasing day by day due use of mobile phones and Wi-Fi around us. Hence we can notice that many small birds and insects like honey bees are not found around these days. Even governments are promising to give free Wi-Fi without realizing its harmful effects. If you wish to know the harsh effects, sit in a library or conference room with Wi-Fi enabled inside. You will notice to be having stomach acidity or a headache there. Wi-Fi reduces the use of wired internet connectivity. Still, it has untoward effects on the humans and environments.

 

Deforestation: Deforestation and widespread destruction of trees and plants in the name of expansion and urbanization drastically effect the environment around.

Even we can see that there are some companies building resorts as a means of holiday trip into the deepest woods in the world.Thus we are exploiting the nature and environment beyond the safe limits. Hence we can see wild animals getting into villages and attacking humans.Deforestation is decreasing the forest area and endangering the lives of wild animals. They have no place to hide, no proper lakes or ponds for drinking water etc. Hence animals die due to dehydration, starvation, and even accidents.

Wastage of resources: We have been exploiting coal, petroleum for our needs by digging the earth crest for decades. Most of the extraction of petroleum is done in the name of storage for future needs. In future, if technology reverts to hydrogen fuels this petroleum stored might go waste. Also instead of natural methods, we use coal for power generation. This coal once dug leaves cavities in the earth surface. These cavities can be troublesome in times of floods and also cause of earthquakes. Also, we have been wasting many resources including soils, water.

Kinds of Pollution

One of the problem we have with our environment are pollutions. There are many kinds of pollution such as:

Air Pollution– occurs when harmful substances including particulates and biological molecules are introduced into Earth’s atmosphere. It may cause diseases, allergies or death in humans; it may also cause harm to other living organisms such as animals and food crops, and may damage the natural or built environment. Human activity and natural processes can both generate air pollution.

Land pollution– is the degradation of earth’s land surfaces often caused by human activities and its misuse. Haphazard disposal of urban and industrial wastes, exploitation of minerals, and improper use of soil by inadequate agricultural practices are a few of the contributing factors. Also, increasing urbanization, industrialization, and other demands on the environment and its resources is of great consequence to many countries.

Water Pollution– is the contamination of water bodies such as lakes, rivers, oceans, aquifers and groundwater. This form of environmental degradation occurs when pollutants are directly or indirectly discharged into water bodies without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds.

These pollution should not be ignored. Although we cannot fix but we can do something to reduce it and prevent further damages it can do to our environment. For me, it is time to act now. We shouldn’t wait for it to further destroy our mother earth.r

Environmentalism

As we all know, our planet is much like a home to us but we never care to look after it like our real homes. We use its resources every day, we pollute it by throwing our trashes or waste anywhere we want, and we never thought that what things will be like in the coming days or future, never thinking what shape things will be in for our generation and the future generation. Millions tons of waste is produced in our planet every day. It’s now the time to think about our environment and what can we do to make our environment pollution-free.

Environmentalism can simply be considered as a social movement that mainly concerns for environmental conservation and improving the state of the environment. Green color often represents environmentalism and environmental concerns. In simple words, it is just a social movement that strives to persuade or induce the political process by lobbying, activism as well as education for protecting natural resources & eco-systems. Talking about environmentalism, it has now become very essential for people to care about the planet Earth and the long term survival of life on this planet. We need to start recognizing the environment problems and should come up solutions to save our environment and make a healthy environment for living. In other words, recognizing a problem is the first step in finding the solution. For instance, environmental concepts like eco-system, sustainable development, biodiversity etc. will help you understand the vulnerability of our environment, and framing our environmental problems as well as coming up with different solutions.

It is important for all of us to be earth friendly or eco-friendly as much possible. It’s in our hands if the future generation will get to see this beautiful planet as well as the ability to make our earth or world a better place for ourselves, our children and family.
