Today’s major global environmental issues include:

a) Global warming and resultant climatic changes b) Depletion of ozone layer c) Deforestation and loss of biodiversity d) Overpopulation and resulting stress on natural resources, particularly fossil fuels e) Air pollution f) Acid rain g) Water pollution and growing scarcity of sweet water h) Soil pollution. The list can never be exhaustive. All or any of these issues, if not given proper attention to, could spell doom for our very existence in this planet. Human societies have therefore understood the need to maintain the environment in proper shape. Yet, power, greed and politics have affected the precarious balance in many parts of this world, endangering everybody on Earth in the process, deliberately or unwittingly.
