All types of factories, production facilities, and cars that burn fossil fuels to generate energy, release enormous quantities of a variety of poisonous gasses, such as Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Dioxide, Sulphur Dioxide, and many others into the atmosphere. In addition to causing the so-called “greenhouse effect”, those gasses also deplete the quantity of oxygen all lifeforms on earth need, which causes a variety of other problems.
Production of goods for societies all around the world comes at a great cost; a large quantity of earth’s waste, is released into seas and oceans. While some of it might be bio-degradable, most of it actually poisons the marine environment which kills off entire species of fish and other marine life. While 70% of the planet is covered by water, only 2.5% is drinkable, and society has access to only 1% of it. We cannot afford to continue poisoning our own water.
As the pollution circle closes, it brings us to the earth, our soil. Growing particular plant species used as food becomes even harder, as acidic rains destroy valuable nutrients and minerals in the ground, making entire fields infertile. Not only that – crops that do eventually grow, produce seeds that are unfit for sowing, and this is exactly how entire plant species disappear from the face of the earth as well.
Recent statistics have shown us that the Earth as a planet can support up to 10 billion humans. With the currently increasing rate, it is estimated that by the time of the year 2100, there will be more than 11 billion people on the face of the Earth, and this is when real trouble will begin if society doesn’t take the appropriate measures. While there are countries that have regulations on how many children a household can have, it is the lifestyle of humankind that needs to change first.
