Environmental degradation is an issue of increasing concern for all
The deterioration of the environment through depletion of resources,
such as air, water and soil.
The destruction of ecosystems and the extinction of wildlife.
We only have one earth to work with, and if the environment is
irreparably compromised, it could mean the end of human existence.
Environmental degradation is a process through which the natural
environment is compromised in some way, reducing biological
diversity and the general health of the environment.
This process can be entirely natural in origin, or it can be
accelerated or caused by human activities.
Many international organizations recognize environmental
degradation as one of the major threats facing the planet, since
humans have only been given one earth ti work with, end if the
environment becomes irreparably compromised, it could mean the
end of human existence.
Air pollution is the
introduction of chemicals,
particulate matter, or
biological materials that cause
harm to humans and destroy
the natural environment
Its also effects very badly to
the Earth’s ecosystems.
Water pollution is the contamination
of water bodies such as lakes, rivers,
oceans, and groundwater. All water
pollution affects organisms and
plants that live in these water bodies
and in almost all cases the effect is
damaging either to individual
species and pollutions but also to the
natural biological communities.
It occurs when pollutants are
discharged directly or indirectly into
water bodies without adequate
treatment to remove harmful
Land pollution is the degradation of
Earth’s land surfaces often caused by
human activities and their misuse of
land resources. It occurs when waste is
not disposed properly . Disposal of
urban and industrial wastes,
exploitation of minerals, and improper
use of soil by inadequate agricultural
practices are a few factors.
Urbanization and industrialization are
high causes of land pollution. The
Industrial Revolution set a series of
events into motion which destroyed
natural habitats and polluted the
environment, causing diseases in both
humans and animals.
Environmental degradation costs India $80 billion annually.
Environmental degradation costs India about Rs.3.75 trillion ($80
billion) annually - equivalent to 5.7 percent of the GDP - with air
pollution being a major contributor, a World Bank report released
the impact of outdoor air pollution accounts for the highest share at
1.7 percent followed by cost of indoor air pollution at 1.3 percent.
23 percent of child mortality in the country could be attributed to
Reuse the product
And it is also affect on country’s economy.
From all above I conclude that environmental degradation is one of the big issue
So save the natural resources
And save the environment.
