Term Paper on Rising Environmental Degradation

As the world’s population is growing the natural deposits are depleting at a higher rate due to increased consumption. Globally, the world is now shifting its focus towards environmental concerns arising due to excessive resource consumption, low standards & bulk production, reducing forestry, and polluting oceans. Environmental degradation is becoming a global threat leading to health problems, severe diseases, and poor surroundings. Consumption behavior in the country leads to the exploitation of resources and ultimately leads to environmental degradation.

Environmental Degradation

In the course of recent years, scholarly research has claimed that ecological deterioration is caused by global temperatures and weather changes.

GHGs composition is found to have CO2, ozone, methane (CH4), nitrous oxide, and moisture, but the major constituent among all GHGs is said to be CO2 which is proclaimed to be the chief reason for the ecological deterioration. CO2 emission causes environmental degradation and is considered an important indicator to measure ecological deprivation.

Experts suggest it is probable in case the environmental composition of CO2 and further supposed greenhouse gases (GHGs) remain escalating, the world’s temperature may turn out to be warmer.

Developed economies invest in unindustrialized nations due to fewer restrictions and prohibitions leading to increased carbon footprints related to the processes and methods of production i.e. excessive use of resources, consumption of coal leading to air pollution and poor standards of production, labor exploitation, dangerous waste dump in sea and water.

EF is a collective indicator of the environment. Numerous opinions are often put forward supporting the practice of export prohibitions to attain ecological and growth-related goals. It is obtained by noting how much naturally productive land is required to fulfill all the inevitable needs of humans. It contains areas for cultivation, production, forestry, captivation of CO2 emissions produced from non-renewable energy sources, and housing.
