Top 5 Environmental Problems in the Current World

Our environment is constantly changing. However, as our environment changes, so does the need to become increasingly aware of the environmental problems that surround it. Let us look at the various environmental problems list we are facing now.

Here are the environmental issues today

Global Warming

If we ask what are some environmental issues, we will find that Global warming is the problematic one. Global warming leads to rising temperatures of the oceans and the earth’ surface causing natural disasters that include flooding, melting of polar ice caps, rise in sea levels and also unnatural patterns of precipitation such as flash floods, hurricanes, wildfires, drought, excessive snow or desertification.

Deforestation

At present, forests cover 30% of the land, but every year tree cover is lost, to make that land available for residential, industrial or commercial purposes.

Climate Change

Climate Change happens due to the increase in temperature of the atmosphere by burning fossil fuels and the release of harmful gases by industries. This is one of the biggest environmental issue.

Acid Rain

Acid rain occurs due to the presence of certain pollutants in the atmosphere. The main cause is the combustion of fossil fuels or erupting volcanoes or rotting vegetation which release harmful gases into the atmosphere. So, it is the top environmental issue.

Urban Sprawl

Urban sprawl refers to the migration of population from high-density urban areas to low-density rural areas. This results in land degradation, increased traffic, environmental, and health issues.

If humans continue moving forward in such a harmful way, then there will be no environmental problems in future. We need to stop all this harmful practices and move towards a better and peaceful future. Read some related articles from here.
