It is difficult for humans to live in harmony with nature because humans’ selfishness always places profits before our earth’s needs. We live in a consumer society, which we purchase interesting products and dispose of them carelessly. Those products with non-decomposable materials, which make our life easier and more comfortable, result a massive damage to our environment. In the articles, “A Fable for Tomorrow” by Rachel Carson and “Our Animals Rite” by Anna Quindlen, both authors suggest destruction in nature world due to human’s activities. As environment issues presented by scientists, governments around the world start to give highly attention on the environmental protection, but there are many challenges in implementing environmental protection policies.
Thus, the finding and digging for the resources which happening extensively without preservation will not restore the surrounding similar with before. But then, the change cannot be refuse and people need to take an action to save the threaten the world and the ecosystem from being extinct. If each country has own output in causing an environmental problem, then consider the world to hold all the damage occurred. Exposing the effects of environmental issues throughout the world, make people realize the important to take care the environment. Focused on the global environmental issues, the global warming seems to be a serious case to deal with.
I also believe that if there is overpopulation than it will not do any good to mankind and overpopulation should be controlled by using different kinds of preventive measures. I also think that overpopulation will lead to global warming and will lead to poverty and malnutrition which will degrade the health of the people in the environment. Even though there are different agricultural means that helps in harvesting and producing more food there is no enough land for the production of enough food and if the population will keep on increasing than it will also increase the pollution in the environment. More population means more use of electricity, vehicles, water and more industrialization. It will lead to more pollution and people will start to become unhealthy.
Our environment is crucial to the survival of the human race, providing key energy resources such as food, water and fuel for our everyday lives. Without this resource, the human race would suffer significantly so it begs the question, why are we slowly destroying it? Problems like overpopulation, deforestation and pollution are all man made creations which are destroying our environments. Weber (2010) highlights one of the main reasons why the public’s perception of climate change is so poor is down to psychological influences. People either do not believe or choose to ignore the consequences of their actions on the environment.
But above all else, sustainable ecotourism requires careful planning ”. Without this planning, ecotourism is doing more harm that good. I will show how these tourist developers are putting huge strains on the environment and how the effects of this behavior will eventually leave the land with the inability to cope with the drastic changes. I believe with carefully planned ecotourism development and rules and regulations, we can make ecotourism and the environment blend simultaneously. First, the tourist developers are adding increased pressure to the limited natural resources, especially in places... ... middle of paper ... ...ions to stop all this destructive behavior.
. Berry uses the metaphor that Earth is a living planet because of all of the diverse lifeforms it has created and by doing this, he really brings to mind what we as humans aren 't appreciating this beautiful planet like we should. McFague states "climate change is surely the most severe test that humanity has ever faced, not only in terms of survival but equally important, in regard to our ‘humanity '. This quote is very important because the reason that this planet is dying has a lot to do with our humanity in the sense that we aren 't treating the planet the way we should be. For example, the climate change that is currently being experienced across the globe is a result of air pollution that has caused the rapid release of greenhouse gases
Environmental losses that occur half way around the world will not observe geographic boundaries. In addition to human casualties, our counter-attacks might ravage fragile ecosystems. An ecosystem sounds awfully abstract compared to the concrete image of those toppling towers and the compelling figure of Osama bin Laden. But environmental problems are real and they are serious. Ecosystem health is crucial to the viability of future generations.
The economy would suffer greatly. It wouldn’t be accustomed to using other sources of energy after depending on non-renewable resources for so long.

Such exploitation is an environmental injustice, which only benefits a few of the elite. Thus, the rest of the world suffers from this environmental inequality, and eventually everyone on earth must pay for the environmental cost of exploitation. In response, the U.S. government should enact a law to eliminate environmental injustices.

For every piece of pollution that disrupts the ozone layer and every piece of trash that pollutes our oceans, the whole world pays a price.
Looking through all of these views shows what a mess humans have made of the planet. If humans continue down this path of anthropocentrism and indifference, there is a very bleak future in store for the natural world. With this outlook, having hope seems comical. But one thing that gives me hope is all of the people who have hope. These kinds of people are not discouraged like the majority, but are proactively working to stop the ecological crisis.
