Nature provides us all with so many wonderful and practical things. From beautiful view, to food & shelter, to maintaining the elegant balance necessary to sustain life on this planet. As industry advances and the human footprint spreads, the elegant of this balance increases more and more. As a result, it is ever-important that we do our required diligence in helping nature to thrive, however we can. That starts with taking care of the environment.
How Do Humans Affect the Environment?Humans, though often unintentionally, have the most deleterious impact on the environment. However, there are a zillions of ways in which we help the environment as well. That is to say our impact on the environment can be positive or negative, necessary yet cleaner, or unnecessary & rejected. Our way of life currently controls that some pollution is going to occur regardless of what we do in our everyday lives. And chemical reactions are happening everywhere that help us to achieve amazing feats that are essential to the more hassle-free times we live in today. The compound efforts have been showing progress in many different ways. You can help by getting involved with conservation, volunteering, and staying in contact your local environmental government agencies.
Why should we care about the environment?First and foremost, a clean environment is key to not only to our own healthy living, but survival of all living things. The air we breathe is the most important resource that the environment provides us with, and our efforts to decrease air pollution are currently not even pacing the pollution being pumped into the air daily (especially in major cities). According to the EPA, air pollution may increase risk of heart attacks, asthma, bronchitis, and premature mortality. There is also evidence to suggest that most indoor air can be up to five times more toxic than it is outdoors. But air pollution is not the only type of pollution we should be concerned with. The CDC also warns that water pollution may increase risks of gastrointestinal illness, reproductive problems, and neurological disorders. When you think of the environment as something that may actually be hurting us if we don’t take care of it, the need for a resolution becomes much clearer.
How to take care of the environmentThe importance of caring for the environment is absolutely paramount for many reasons. Perhaps most importantly, we need to make sure that we leave this place better than when we came for the next generations whose job(s) it will be to also look after the planet. It wouldn’t be fair to hand them something we fouled up that they are responsible for cleaning up.
