Our ENVIRONMENT and the activities in it revolves around man. We are the regulators of both physical, social, economical and technological activities in our natural as well as built environment. Over the years, the socio-economic activities of man has disrupted the ecosystem and it keeps getting worse by the day. As human population increases on a daily basis, the habitat is altered and destroyed. There is a continuous impact on natural resourses as they get compromised and dep...

Ever since i learnt about global warming and its effects, i got all geared up for doing something towards preventing it. But now, i am doubtful if is it a reality or just a theory. i have heard from both the sides and i am just confused. the layman knows that global warming is happening but the ones who have really delved in it know have divided opinions. some just acknowledge it, some say its just a lie while others strongly believe in it and its harmful effects. here is what i have gathered (f...

Environmental problems are becoming more and more serious all over the world. For example, cars have made the air unhealthy for people to breathe as well as poisonous gas is given off by factories. Trees on the hills have been cut down and waste water is being poured continuously into rivers.Furthermore, wherever we go today, we can find rubbish carelessly disposed. Pollution is, in fact, threatening our existence. The earth is our home and we have the duty to take care of it for...

This is a very powerful video that shows how we are the generation that will either be remembered as the generation that destroyed its home or the one that saved it.

We all live in a world that is very interconnected. An issue that affects one part of the world is almost certain to effect another part of the world in some way, albeit not as severely. Issues affecting the environment are the most severe of these because of their far-reaching and severe long lasting affects. Pollution caused by industrial sources and transportation contribute heavily to air pollution, which is linked to global climate change through the emission of Greenhouse Gas...

In 2013, Typhoon Haiyan took over 10,000 lives in the Philippines, leaving the island country devastated. The Japanese earthquake and tsunami in 2011 killed about 19,000 people and released nuclear radiation into the soil. These recent weather disasters can be explained by global warming. In fact, recently severe climate events are the result of weather change that is being caused by human activities. Global warming is characterized by an increase in temperatures, which causes...

Its seems to me that this summer is much warmer than the previous summers we have had. The rain has not even been constant, it is not so often that rain starts in December. Mostly it begins to rain constantly and often late October. It must be that there is too much heat in the atmosphere causing the water vapor not to condense but if there is condensation then obviously we wont have rain. But what will happen to our country if there is no rain? The gases that are let out into th...

It has already started. The effects of climate change have meant that people are being forced to migrate. A case of a family from Tuvalu applied for asylum in New Zealand and although it was granted it was on humanitarian ground on the basis that there had close ties in NZ. In fact the bulk of the case was on the premise that they were being affected by climate change. This decision has drawn attention to the Refugee convention in place. The Refugee Convention currently in place do...
