1The immortal bottle
This is just the sad truth about plastic in our environment. They are dangerous for the environment as well as wildlife but humans keep using it. Scientists estimate that it would take 200 years for a plastic bottle to disintegrate. This image just represents what scientists believe; even in 2109, the bottle will still remain.
2Losing our planet
This image is so heartbreaking as it just shows us the reality of our planet. We as humans are destroying the only planet we have, the only environment that has given us so much. Yes, humans are ungrateful and eager to destroy and explore and advance but at the expense of all our natural resources. This image shows what was a forest with wildlife is now a barren wasteland.
This image is alarming as well as scary as it goes to show how real and dangerous global warming really is. The glaciers at both poles are melting at a rapid rate and we as humans don’t seem to be finding a solution but in fact, are making the problem even worse. In the next five to six years we may face various natural catastrophes as a result of all this.
4Deforestation needs to be stopped
Deforestation is something that is a necessary evil. We can do it properly as we need to cut down trees to gain more land for development as well as agriculture but in return, we need to plant more trees to restore the balance. One-sided deforestation where we only cut and never plant more trees can lead to disaster.
5Pollution is destroying the water
Rivers and lakes are getting polluted with pesticides and fertilizers that drain out from farmlands. These make the water uninhabitable for the aquatic life as well as the plants that grow here. Water pollution is real and very harmful for the environment and aquatic life and we are the only ones who can stop it. We need to act or we could lose our environment.
