Without human activity there would be no development, without development there would be no improvement.
Mostly everything on this planet is caused by human activity.
Transport, food, electricity, art, history, war, babies etc. A human-being cannot go on without taking care of its needs, that’s why humans do anything for survival. They kill, cut and sometimes remember to revive the environment.
Here are six forms of human-caused geoengineering already having an impact on Earth worldwide.
In order to produce the energy that drives the world’s economy
The system relies on carbon rich fossil fuels. By burning these materials the rate of carbon dioxide rises in the atmosphere.
One fourth of Earth’s river basins run dry before ever reaching the ocean.
This is caused by man-made dams, which reduce rainfalls. This also has a big impact on climate change.
Black carbon particles are released into the atmosphere in the form of smoke that is produced by cooking with solid animal fuels, burning trees, and spewing diesel exhaust.
According to the , three billion tons of CO2 enters the atmosphere every year from deforestation.
Ocean reefs make up the foundation of some of the world’s richest marine ecosystems.
As a result of water pollution, ocean acidification, overfishing, and climate change, experts estimate that and one-quarter of reef species may be extinct by 2050.
Technological development has led to the invention of new materials, such as plastics, that were previously unknown to the planet. Many of these new materials are made up of chemical compounds that can remain active in the environment for thousands of years and have lasting impacts
So, these are just a few, there are probably some we don’t even know about.
This is what I think, the Earth IS being damaged by human-activity, but, at the same time, it is also developing and growing because of it.
There is nothing to agree or not to agree with, it’s simple; there’s no good without bad and no bad without good. Humans have to constantly remind themselves, that this is it, this is the only planet given to them and it is their responsibility to take care of it, like it takes care of us.
