    The biggest gift that god has given to humans is mother nature. Mother nature has always nourished humans in all possible ways but in return, humans have given global warming, environmental, degradation, ecological crisis, biodiversity loss, and ocean acidification. Some of the other activities of humans that affect the environment on a global scale directly or indirectly include deforestation, population growth, overconsumption, overexploitation, and mass extinction. All these problems result in climate change, soil erosion, undrinkable water, and poor air quality.

    We can still help our environment and increase its quality which will help humans to develop.

    • Plant more trees, it provide food and oxygen.

    • Conserve water, try to save water, and reuse it in possible ways.

    • Use a bicycle and drive less.

    • Shop Wisely, and avoid plastic material and plastic bags.

    Human development often negatively impacts the environment through deforestation, industrial pollution, and urbanization. Increased consumption leads to resource depletion and habitat destruction, threatening biodiversity. Industrial activities release pollutants, contributing to air and water pollution. Climate change is accelerated by the emission of greenhouse gases from burning fossil fuels. Urban expansion results in habitat loss and fragmentation, affecting wildlife. Unsustainable practices, like overfishing and agriculture, deplete natural resources. Overall, human development, when not carried out sustainably, disrupts ecosystems, compromises biodiversity, and contributes to environmental degradation, posing long-term challenges for both ecosystems and human well-being.
