Natural resources such as fresh water, oil and forests are disappearing from earth. Why is this happening? Suggest a solution for this problem.
There are numerous factors for this vicious phenomenon come into being. To begin with, the key causes of this crisis, in particular, the loss of species is caused by as the growing size of human populations, and the rate at which humans consume resources. A case in point, urbanization has dramatically increased the rate of habitat loss and change. Sprawling development is consuming land at a rate of five or more times the rate of population growth, destroying wildlife habitat and degrading water quality.
Moreover, global industrialization has sparked the demand for energy to soar, particularly in China. Likely, the world has used half of the available crude oil in less than 150 years and demand is increasing. Most of the “easy” oil has been found, and new drilling involves extraction of crude by improved techniques and drilling in increasingly remote places and deeper wells.
Earth’s resources are disappearing at an alarming rate. Even if we could trust Earth to always find her balance again, we know now that big enough changes are underway on our planet right now that we humans have to change our ways of doing things, if we do not want to be one of those species that goes extinct.
Luckily there is still time to make up for our mistakes, and if we act promptly, we can prevent future extinctions from occurring This can start by rebuilding the habitat that these plants and animals live in. Foremost, the best news for scarce resources is recycling. It is easy to preserve natural resources for future generations by resorting to recycling. Furthermore, we are able to spread the word about problems, share ideas and your concerns, work together, pressure our leaders for change more effectively than any other generation in history
