Earth is our home It is where we live and we cannot live without it. We rely on the earth for our very existence in many different ways. Its resources feed us and provide the raw materials we need to survive daily. Man has many positive and negative effects on the earth.
Man impacts the physical environment in so many ways causing overpopulation, pollution, burning fossil fuels, deforestation and so on. Changes like these have triggered climate change, soil erosion, poor air quality, undrinkable water and many other inconveniences. Apart from the natural resources it provides, earth is a place of wonder with many beautiful sites to see. Earth is a very beautiful and man has destroyed some of these beautiful sites because of companies, infrastructures and other selfish needs. Man cuts down trees and litter affecting both animals and plants.
There are so many small things you can do which can create a big difference. Climate change has been said to affect right to life, right to health, right to housing and rights to water and to sanitation. People always say climate change is and will continue to harm all of us unless governments take action. But you yourself can also do something to help. though it mostly affects people in developing nations, especially coastal countries and small island states, everyone is still at the receiving end.
