Over the years, human evolution has led to an unstoppable and continuous process of environmental degradation.
Initially, we used the resources that the environment offered us in a reneway way, but later, technological advances led to the construction of more and more powerful devices, and we began to extract the resources we needed more quickly and efficiently.
As a result, we are now facing three mayor environmental problems:
* Pollution and waste.
* Disappearance of plant and animal species and habitats.
Extreme weather events such as floods or heat waves, happens nowadays more than even before, and scientists put the blame for these natural disasters on global warming. What’s more, if it continues due to the greenhouse effect, the negative impact on the climate and the environment will be worse.
However, most people have heard about these predictions but it seems that relatively few people have taken action to protect the planet. So that we should all improve our commitment to achieve an ecological balance between lifestyle and the conservation of ecosystems and natural resources.
