Our Environment is a very essential part of our life. It is the source for us to live  in and to eat, play, work, enjoy, walk, breath, hear or drink. The environment is basically our the atmosphere, and surrounding geographical area.  The quality of our life depends a lot on our environment.

Long ago, people lived adapting themselves to the environment and did not harm the environment.  In these days we are harming and degrading the environment and indirectly harming ourselves. 

Power of the technology and science has enabled the man to exploit the use of environment for selfish and indiscriminate use and create a problem for everyone. The causes are:

1.  Deforestation
2.  Growth of population and Rapid urbanization
3.  Loss of biodiversity
4.  Air pollution (greenhouse gases), drinking water pollution, river pollution by mixing poisonous chemicals, plastics, 
5.  Global warming and Depletion of ozone layer
6.  Depletion of underground water, oil and gas reserves and natural resources like minerals.

We have to adapt to the environment and use regenerative and recycling methods.  Otherwise, people may suffer from diseases. Famines and cyclones may occur.  Rains may fall untimely and damaging. 


Action related to our environment needs to be done together by governments of various countries and the United Nations Organization, at a global level. Long term planning and monitoring of actions of private corporations is needed. The young must be educated to live in harmony with environment rather than exploit it. Each of us has to protect our environment.
