Loss of Natural Resources
The wonderful resources provided by nature are massively taken for granted and destroyed by humans themselves. The following are the global issues on the loss of natural resources.
Issue related to food: Fertile lands have been transformed into highways, grazing fields, residences and commercial centers. Reducing vast agricultural areas will naturally deplete the production of food.
Toxic chemical issue: The use of fertilizers and pesticides in the farms to boost food production causes air poisoning and pollution which are harmful to plants, animals and humans.
Issue on the destruction of natural habitats: Wildlife needs a particular kind of environment to survive. For instance, some birds fly to warmer countries during winter season but when the habitat is destroyed by loggers, these birds will go somewhere else to which their body can't tolerate. Wildlife will soon be doomed for extinction.
Issue on energy: Many countries rely on fossil fuel for their energy needs which is non-renewable. Fossil oil such as gasoline and diesel, pollutes the air, which results in global warming. Everyday, thousands of vehicles are clogging the highways, not only to ferry human passengers but to bring about smog, pollution and other toxins into the environment.
Deforestation issue: For commercial purpose, trees are cut down and no new trees are planted to replace them. Soon there will be no more trees in the forest to prevent soil erosion and floods.
The number of endangered species keeps on increasing because of these issues. Let's not wait until humans too will be included in this record. The blame for this occurrence is pointed towards men. Therefore, the entire human race has to assume responsibility in properly repairing the damages done to the environment, so that in the near future, there will be no more issues associated with the loss of natural resources.
