Title: Top five reasons for environmental degradation by Pradip Burman

Top five reasons for environmental degradation by
Pradip Burman
Environmental degradation is defined as the
disintegration of earth through overconsumption
of natural resources which significantly
eradicates wildlife and plant diversity,
environmental degradation is the serious
aggravation to natures turf.
Although there is no single issue that can be
circled out from the rest, it is our
dysfunctional relationship with nature and
humanitys constantly growing greed that is at
the root of this pernicious problem. Its a
consolidation of expanding human population,
increasing monetary development, overused natural
resources and polluting technology that depletes
the natural resources and compromises future
generations. The consequences are extremely
detrimental, yet overlooked and seldom ever paid
heed to. Being part of the collective, we must
take responsibility for our individual actions,
but before that it is important to know the
issues that we partake in causing this.
Land disturbance A more basic cause of
environmental degradation is land damage.
Numerous weed plants like garlic mustard, are
both foreign and obtrusive. A rupture in the
environmental surroundings allow the weed to grow
and spread. Assuming control over nature they
eliminate the co-existing plant species which
gradually results in a space predominant with a
plant that does not partake in a symbiotic
relationship and drains the environmental life.
These weeds are extremely dangerous because of
their invasive nature and must be destroyed
before they significantly impact whole ecosystems.
Pollution Pollution whether it is in air, water,
land or noise is harmful for the
environment.Whether it is the deteriorating air
quality, water quality or soil quality all of
them are interlinked to our own personal health.
OverpopulationThanks to the recent developments
over the years, medical advancement has caused
mortality rates to plummet resulting in
increasing lifespan. However there seems to be no
end to the rapid population growth that results
in excessive consumption and burdens the overall
ecosystem.Even when we consume reasonably, more
population simply means more food, more cloth and
more shelter for millions of people.In an effort
to curb this growing population and spread
awareness about family planning, Mobius
foundation launched Project Aakar to educate
rural communities and change their attitudes
towards contraceptive measures.
Landfills More consumption, more waste and more
irresponsible disposal methods can destroy the
environment. Harmful waste generated by
households, industries, factories and hospitals
pose a serious risk to the health of the
environment and the people who live there. Waste
in landfills when burned releases toxic gases and
can cause a serious impact on the environment.
Deforestation One of the most concerning reasons
behind environmental degradation is deforestation
which is caused by the rapid urban crawl, wherein
the cleaned land is further used for agriculture,
animal grazing, harvest for fuel wood and
logging.This perpetuates global warming as
decreased forest size puts carbon back into the
If we are not aware, we are contributing to this
global issue.However once we take full
responsibility for our actions and unite as a
community to take environmental actions, we will
sow the seeds of a better, brighter future for
the next generation.
