  53. 53. Major Environmental Issues and Concerns • Water Pollution • Air Pollution • Waste And Land Pollution • Climate Change
  54. 54. Water PollutionCauses  Dumping industrial wastes into the nearby sources of water  Improper disposal of human and animal wastes  Fertilizers, pesticides used in agriculture  Pathogens, sediments and chemical pollutants Effects  Damage to the food chain  Diseases can be spread through polluted water  Acid rain  Alteration of the overall chemistry of water  Contaminated Marine food resources  Altered water temperatures which can kill the marine life
  55. 55. Air pollution Causes  burning of fossil fuel  Increased level of carbon dioxide in the air  Car exhausts and other emissions(SMOG)  Released extra dust and sand into the air due to desertification of wilderness  Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) used in refrigerants and aerosol propellants  Increased road and air traffic Effects  Acid rain  Health problems to human beings i.e. respiratory disorder, cancer, etc.  Global warming
  56. 56. Waste and land pollution Causes Degenerative actions i.e. deforestation, overuse of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, desertification, mining, inadequate waste treatment Misused of land Effect  Leads to loss of forest cover of the earth  Destruction of natural habitat of species leading to their extinction  Bio magnification whereby certain non- biodegradable substances accumulated in the food chain affecting the food pyramid
  57. 57. Waste and land pollution Causes Soil pollution caused by overuse chemical fertilizers and pesticides Land conversion Urbanization, improper waste disposal, E-wastes, industrial activities, nuclear research etc. Effect Effects of biodiversity that brings about disruption of the balance of nature Diseases and health problems

  59. 59. Environmental Principles • Nature knows best • All forms of life are equally important • Everything is interconnected • Everything changes • Everything must go somewhere • Ours is a finite Earth • Nature is beautiful and we are stewards of God’s creation
  60. 60. Nature knows best • Nature has the ability to regulate, perpetuate and maintain its balance and keep living and non-living organism stable. However, when humans interrupt and alter these abilities, imbalance happens and ecological backlash occurs. In fact, natural calamities are mechanisms used by the environment to keeps itself from balance
  61. 61. All forms of life are equally important • All the living organisms have the inherent right to exist. All of them play an important role that is evident in the food chain. Diversity is the characteristic of nature and the basis of ecological stability. Biodiversity in many ways supports human life
  62. 62. Everything is interconnected
  63. 63. Everything is interconnected • All things on earth are interconnected to each other to everything else. Each organism depends on other organisms to survive. (food chain/web). When we break the chain of interconnectedness and drastically alter the same these will result to extinction and species will perish.
  64. 64. Everything changes • Seasons helps produce different flowers, fruits, vegetables and other crops. Every year in animals, changes can be seen in the transformation of caterpillar to butterflies, maggots to fly, etc. The process is called metamorphosis. These changes produce new life forms that are essential in maintaining the balance in nature.
  65. 65. Everything must go somewhere
  66. 66. Everything must go somewhere • This law reminds us on the Laws of Conservation of matter. Matter cannot be created nor destroyed. It can only be transformed. Since everything that we see around us is “matter” then we should know that nothing here on earth disappears or simply goes away. Biodegradable waste eventually back to the soil. However, the nature only has the ability to recycle natural products.
  67. 67. Ours is a finite Earth • This law tells us that there are limits to the population that an area can support to prevent exhaustion of resources, limits to the amount of yield that an area can produce at a particular time to maintain its ability to sustain life.
  68. 68. are stewards of God’s creation
  69. 69. Nature is beautiful and we are stewards of God’s creation • Humans are barely borrowers of the earth resources. As they are the only ones gifted with the capability to conserve and protect nature which is their source of existence and sustenance
  70. 70. Green tips to save mother Earth 1. Don’t throw away plastic or polythene pouches anywhere. Throw them in appropriate container marked as plastic disposable dustbin 2. Don’t waste too much water unnecessarily as bathing under the shower for 10 minutes can waste up to 70 gallons of water, while we can bathe in 2 buckets of 20 liters
  71. 71. 3. don’t destroy the grass covering around your house completely. The insects and microorganisms will suffer. Also soil erosion will occur heavily in absence of grass 4. don’t cut big trees around your house for letting in more sunlight. You can prune the branches. Green tips to save mother Earth
  72. 72. 5. don’t drive too fast. It will lead to more fuel consumption. Also make sure make sure that your vehicle doesn’t pollute the environment 6. don’t use inor4ganic fertilizers or pesticides in your garden and try to threat the plants by organic materials. This will maintain the soil fertility Green tips to save mother Earth
  73. 73. 7. don’t buy any illegal wildlife product(fur, bones, nails, feathers). Also stop buying meats of tortoise, shark, dolphin, etc. , as when buying stops, killing stops, too. 8. Save power. It can be form of electricity, petrol, diesel, firewood, etc. whatever it may be, we are getting it at the expense of natural resources, so optimum use of power will boost not only our economy, but also our environment. Green tips to save mother Earth
  74. 74. 9. Take steps for hazardous waste management of segregation of waste 10. don’t release those colorful balloons in the air. For balloons that escaped the grasps of our hands will get into oceans and seas and they will be mistaken as yummy jellyfish by the sea turtles. Sea turtles take a lot of years to mature and unfortunately some of them got killed by eating balloon or plastic bags. Green tips to save mother Earth
  75. 75. 11. reduce, Reuse and Recycle. 12. Recycle things to conserve our resources, collect old newspapers, books, magazines, used papers, bottles(plastic and glasses), and any other things that could sell in junkyards. There is money in garbage and at the same time we’re doing our part in recycling process. Green tips to save mother Earth
  76. 76. 13. Be kind to trees. As much as possible use forest products and timber very well with optimum efficiency. Use both sides of paper. Use pencils until they become smaller as small as possible, and don’t play with matches. Try to get involved in tree planting in your local conservation program. Green tips to save mother Earth
  77. 77. • 14. Broken scientific apparatus like thermometer, barometers, manometers, sphygmomanometers and float valves and other things that have mercury on should be disposed properly. Avoid throwing them in the rivers for mercury is toxic and poisonous.
  78. 78. 15. Minimize use refrigerators, foam blower, solvents, aerosol spray propellants, fire extinguishers and chemical reagents for these contains chlorofluorocarbons(CFCs) that are responsible to the climate change and depletion of our precious ozone layer. Do not burn plastic please. This habit is also harmful to our ozone layer Green tips to save mother Earth
  79. 79. 16. Do not buy exotic and endangered animals. These animals are intended to be in the wild no as mere decorations to your homes or as pets or playthings 17. Do not even bother to try eating exotic and endangered animals for they are not intended to be part of humans diet. Let the other predatory animal od the stalking and eating. You’re not fit to be a lion. Green tips to save mother Earth
  80. 80. 18. Do not patronize things(coats, purse, belt, etc.) that are made up of endangered animal or animal part 19. Be responsible with your garbage, disposed them properly. Also try to use segregation scheme with your trashes, separate those decomposable from those that are not. You may utilize compost pit to house all your organic trashes and eventually use this as your fertilize for your backyard garden or to your plants Green tips to save mother Earth
  81. 81. 20. Get active in the community! Encourage others to make these changes and start working towards a better, more sustainable world. And at last, but not the least – SHARE this information. Green tips to save mother Earth
