What are Environmental Issues?
Any human activity brings along with it, many side effects. One aspect of it could bring about development while the other side of the coin could be a detrimental effect. These unfavourable changes often lead to environmental issues that affect the natural balance of the environment.
We can define environmental issues as the harmful effects of any human activity on the environment. This includes both the biological and physical aspects of the environment. Air pollution, water pollution, natural environment pollution, garbage pollution, etc. are some of the major environmental issues that are causing immense concern.
To tackle these environmental issues, protecting the environment is very vital. This not only helps in preventing the detrimental effects but also helps us to conserve the natural resources and natural environment for future generations. Protection of the environment is not only a social movement but is also backed by various laws that have been passed to ensure that humans do not misuse the resources any longer.
