How to Protect Human Lives and Environment As time passes by, we can see lots of people are start fighting for the rights of wild animals and plants to survive on this earth that controlled by the human activities. Today we became more self-aware that we are also a part of the nature, and therefore, anything that harms the environment will also give a great impact towards us, and that the very existence of human life depends on preserving a balanced global ecosystem. I personally think that human lives are very connective with the environment around them.
According to Ehrlich (1986), he says that because the human population of the planet is about five times too large, and we’re managing to support all these people- at today’s level of misery- only by spending out capital, burning our fossil flues, dispersing our mineral resources and turning our fresh water into salt water. We are poisoning the ecological system of the earth- systems upon which we are ultimately dependent for all of our food, for all of our oxygen and for all of our waste disposal.
There are four big environmental fear which are natural resources are running out, the population is ever growing, leaving less and less to eat, species are becoming extinct in vast numbers: forests are disappearing and fish stocks are collapsing and the planet’s air and water are becoming ever more polluted. As we can see here, human lives should be protected in order to form a balanced population on earth. Besides that, environment should also be protected to help human beings to live in a suitable and safe surroundings. The responsibility in all human beings towards the human lives and environment is the main concern in this issue.
God created such marvelous earth for us to live in and it is our responsibility to make sure that they are always in their good condition. But lately, see what had happen to our lovely surroundings? Aren’t they happen to be polluted and sick? As the world has changed, so have we. So, it is time to get ourselves involve to curb with this problem before it is too late. To protect human lives is not just a thing to debate but it is also important to carry out the problem solving steps. To protect human lives, it must not only a small society doing the work, it also includes family members, national and international organizations.
As a teenager, we must not think that our roles is not essential but we ought to change our mindset that we can actually being a part and save human lives and environment too. We can actually participate in talks on how to save human lives and environment. Teenagers can seek help from the elders to get them know more about the current issues. They should also keep an eye on what is happening around them, if anything smells fishy, they can make a report. Most of them can also participate themselves in some activities that helps to promotes the awareness of protecting human lives and environment.
Activities such as planting trees, cleaning up parks, donating money or organs to the people whom suffer from diseases can be carried out by them. On top of that, they should apply the values such as, caring and observant in their daily life. They can spread the care towards human lives and the environment via sending articles to the other side of the country, so that people from around the world begin to realized the truth and then together find ways to solve it. Next concern is the role of the family members on protecting the human lives and environment. Family members have the most influential power among their children.
Parents are the primary role in educating their children on how to protect human lives and environment by educating them for self-realization and self-giving and willing to make sacrifices and to wait. Parents should also teach them to save the electricity such as pledge to switch off their TV and computer, instead of leaving these in standby mode. Parents can also increase the green-education of their children by demonstrating every day strategies for helping in the fight to save the environment. If everyone does their part, today’s children will be tomorrow’s environmentalists, helping to save our planet from ruin.
As we all know, industrial pollution is on the rise and is affecting the human’s live and health. Here is one of the best way to reduce industrial pollution which is to design processes that prevent the emission of pollutants from the outset. This is where the skills of Fraunhofer’s process engineering experts can be applied to great effect. In so many projects, they have succeeded in optimizing processes to reduce the consumption of resources and lower emissions, thereby protecting the environment while at the same time cutting costs.
Metrology has an essential role to play in protecting the environment too. It enables us to identify potential and actual problem areas, assess the need for action, and determine what has to be done. By developing solutions such as an analysis laboratory miniaturized to the size of a microchip and portable spectrometers, Fraunhofer scientists and engineers can provide rapidly deployable instruments for use anywhere in any situation. Earth Hour 2011 on 26th March prepares to showcase a growing global community committed to taking environmental actions that go beyond the hour.
From now until Earth Hour 2012, WWF-Malaysia is urging everyone across the nation to take Earth Hour beyond the hour by signing up at wwf. org. my and pledging to “Live Green: One switch at a time. ” The environmental groups need to be noticed by the mass media. They also need to keep the money rolling in. Understandably, perhaps, they sometimes exaggerate. In 1997, for example, the Worldwide Fund for Nature issued a press released entitled, “ Two-thirds of the world’s forests lost forever”. The truth turns out to be nearer 20%.
Besides that, newspaper and broadcasters are there to provide what the public wants. There are many ways of protecting our natural environment. However, all applied research carried out to meet this objective shares the same basic maxim: To protect the environment is to protect human life. Through this coursework given by our lecturer, I have also learned that I have a responsibility for sustainability. We all have a social responsibility to create and promote a sustainable future by protecting our environment and build a self-sustaining future for our children and theirs.
We ought to practise the 3R (Reduce, reuse and recycle) in our daily life in order to promote a better environment. Before this, I never thought that our generation has so much responsibility to promote a sustainable future. Bibliography 1) Christusrex. In Guide-lines for Education within the Family.
