Welcome to Tesi Environmental Awareness Movement
First and foremost, I extend my greetings and sincere felicitations to all the members of the Tesi Environmental Awareness Movement, who love to take care of the both the local small environment and the bigger world environment. I hope the non-benefit organisation grows from strength to strength in the years to come.
Now, I am going to share some of my suggestions on the given topic with the help of my view on the environment. We already know that environment refers to our surroundings in which organisms live and interact.
There are two types of environment. One is natural environment and the other one is human-made environment. The first one consists of physical and biological environment. The physical environment is formed by the atmosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere. Biosphere environment consists of a thin zone of interaction amongst land, water, air and all life forms.
Human-made environment means the environment which is created through various human activities. In this process, human beings adapt and alter the natural environment and their surroundings to make them suitable for their needs and wants.
Environmental degradation refers to the deterioration of the environment both in terms of quantity and quality. The first refers to exhaustion of certain minerals, forest cover, extinction of wildlife species and so on. The second refers to pollution of land, air, water and so on. Environmental degradation is always discussed under the two terms of resource depletion and pollution of environment.
Resource Depletion: All our economic activities are dependent on the use of resources. If we overuse or misuse the natural resources without a second thought, they may not be available for future generations. Moreover, it will cause a number of serious problems in the future.
Depletion of Soil: The soil is a layer in which plant nutrients are produced and held. It holds water in storage for plants to use. As such it plays a vital role in agriculture. We need to know that careless human activities can destroy the soil in a very short time. Deforestation, over-cultivation, over-grazing, construction of buildings and mining activities affect the soil layer in different ways.
