Environment

In Brief

Global warming. Ozone depletion. Smog. Water Pollution. Disappearing rainforests. Nuclear waste. The problems faced by our Earth are monumental. Humans set about to alter the environment thousands of years ago, and with today's fossil fuels and chemicals, the damage has been great. The Earth's resources are rapidly depleting and many people do not have access to safe drinking water. Government and independent organizations are working to find solutions that will restore the planet and allow us to take advantage of natural resources.

One of the reasons environmental protection is such a long-running issue is the multi-faceted nature of preservation. The environmental movement is quite large. There are many grassroots organizations devoted to issues such as saving wildlife, stopping deforestation, decreasing toxic emissions and recycling.
