The world we live in is a beautiful place. We live in an incredible planet with diverse flora and fauna. The varieties of plants and animals and the beautiful landscapes add to the diversity of nature. But, the diversity of the earth has been diminishing now. In ancient times, humans did not interfere with nature. They lived amidst nature and maintained their natural surroundings. Everyone lived in harmony with each other. The world was a beautiful place to live in.
With the advent of industrialization, things start changing. Humans began exploiting nature for their own benefits. The trees were cut down for wood and industrial raw materials. The animals were killed for their hides and food. The animal habitats were destroyed and soon the animals started becoming extinct. The planet started losing its beauty.
In today’s scenario, a major portion of land is barren. It has lost its fertility and can no more be used for cultivation. Moreover, the use of chemical fertilizers has further destroyed the quality of the land. The crops produced are harmful for human consumption.
Deforestation has led to an increase in earth’s temperature. Also, the pollution from the vehicles adds to global warming. This has led to the melting of glaciers and an increase in the sea level that results in natural calamities such as tsunami. Trees bind the earth. Due to deforestation, the
Earth has become lose that gives rise to frequent earthquakes and soil erosion.
The world has changed manifold since ancient times. The beauty of the earth has been diminishing. The trees are lost, the water table is decreasing. It is very important to control such a drastic change. People should start planting trees wherever possible. The use of vehicles should be minimised. The water should not be wasted. Air, water, and land are the major sources of life on earth. If these sources will be polluted, life on earth will be impossible.
