We have access to everything we require to live on our planet, as well as anything we want! We receive our food, air, water for irrigating our crops, and soil from our woods, rivers, oceans, and other natural resources. Our health, happiness, and prosperity also depend on them for a wide range of other products and services. The term “natural capital” refers to these resources found in nature. Practically all that we require grows from this one planet: the food we eat for fuel, the water we drink to be hydrated, the air we breathe for oxygen, the raw materials we need.

For their health and way of life, people all over the world—especially those who live in poor nations—rely heavily on the natural environment. The basic elements of life—air, food, and water—are provided by a healthy environment. It also offers tools for preventing natural disasters and resources for economic development.

The loss of biodiversity, pollution, and climate change have combined to create a triple global crisis for the world. Icecaps and snow cover are thinning, there are more instances of extreme temperatures and heavy precipitation, and the sea ice is retreating. About 3 percent of land is the only place on Earth that has pristine ecosystems and robust population numbers for any original species to thrive and occupy, while 97 percent of the Earth’s environment is no longer “ecologically intact.”

The speed at which the earth is being destroyed can be sped up by climate change, man-made alterations to nature, and crimes that threaten biodiversity, such as deforestation, changing land uses, intensifying livestock and agricultural production, or expanding illegal wildlife trading. In four billion years, Earth’s surface temperature increase will lead to a runaway greenhouse effect that will produce conditions that are more extreme than those on Venus now and heat the planet’s surface to the point of melting. All life on Earth will have disappeared by then.

Numerous human activities such as overpopulation, pollution, burning fossil fuels, and deforestation have an adverse effect on the physical environment. These kind of changes are to blamed for the calamities the earth is currently suffering from. Environmental deterioration brought on by human activity continues every day. Threats to the delicate balance required to sustain life include destruction of forests, water contamination and scarcity, oil drilling, and fracking.

Awareness-building about our ecosystem and mother earth is the only way to respect her. We may significantly improve the quality of life on this planet by finding balance in our lives and forming eco-friendly habits. The need for a greener, cleaner earth should be recognized by everyone. All forms of life on Earth depend on ecosystems. Our ecosystems’ health directly affects both the earth’s population and the health of our planet. Ending poverty, halting climate change, and avoiding mass extinction are all made possible by repairing our damaged ecosystems.
