Key Challenges To Sustainability
Increased number of human beings means a larger demand for resources
Burning fossil fuels has a major negative impact on the environment.
Alternative energy sources such as solar energy, wind power, tidal flow and hydro-electricity are much better and sustainable for the environment.
Increased carbon dioxide levels
Burning fossil fuels releases extra carbon dioxide
Cutting down trees which convert carbon dioxide to oxygen
Increased global temperatures
Rising sea levels and retreat of ice caps and glaciers
Everything is linked to the impact of people on the atmosphere
The release of any substances into the air which can be harmful to the environment
The removal of natural vegetation
Leaves the kand exposed to wind and water erosion
Animals and plants are dependent on their environments/habitats
When they are destroyed they are vunerable to extinction
The migration of people from rural ares to large cities
Rapid growth of cities overwhelms the ability of the uthorities to meet basic needs of urban population
Growth of squatter settlements
At the rate of which the oceans resources are being used, the ocean is being exploited for its resources.
Pollution of the ocean is another major problem affecting the oceans
