Environmental Problems

The environment is everything around us. It is the air, water, land, climate and so on. Since many years ago, people interferences with the environment which causes several problems. Some of these problems are air pollution, water pollution, rain forest destruction, smog, overpopulation, and global warming. The worst problems now affecting the world are global warming and overpopulation. First of all, global warming, which means increasing the temperature of the earth, is the most dangerous one. There are many things, which cause global warming. The major reason is pollution, which is one of the man-made problems. In fact, burning fossil fuels is one thing that causes it. When fossil fuels are burning, they give us a greenhouse gas called Co2. After that, the greenhouse, which traps heat and light from the sun, will increase; as a result, the temperature rises. This happens because the heat and light can get through the atmosphere, but it can’t get out. Depending on the scientists, there are two major effects of global warming. One of them is rising of sea levels, which kills people, plants, and animals. The other one is an increase of the frequency, duration, and intensity of weather events, such as floods, droughts, heat waves, and tornadoes. Second is overpopulation. The population of the world has been gotten up for years. The population is almost reaching the stage where there are too many people for planet to support. The huge numbers of people consume more items, drive more cars, and create larger amounts of garbage. Consequently, we are putting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which increases the global warming problems. Thus, overpopulation is the worst environmental problems. Indeed, communities now are aware of the environmental problems and they are trying to do more research, and find suitable solutions for its. They are doing the best especially with overpopulation which leads...
