Mother earth is currently facing a lot of environmental concerns. The environmental problems like Global Warming, acid rain, air pollution, urban sprawl, waste disposal, ozone layer depletion, water pollution, climate change and many, many more affect every human, animal and nation on this planet.
Over the last few decades, the exploitation of our planet and derogation of our environment have increased by an alarming rate. As our actions have been to in favour of protecting the planet, we have seen natural disasters striking us more often in the form of flash floods, tsunamis and cyclones.
The EPA’s Climate Change Research Programme carries out relevant and up to date studies on climate change in Ireland. Analysis of the meteorological records shows that Ireland’s climate is changing in line with global patterns
The clearest trend is evident in the temperature records which show a mean temperature increase of 0.7o C between 1890 and 2008, i.e. an increase of 0.06o C per decade. The increase was 0.4oC during the period 1980-2008, i.e. equivalent to 0.14o C per decade.
Air pollution occurs when gases, dust particles, fumes (or smoke) or odour are introduced into the atmosphere in a way that makes it harmful to humans, animals and plant. This is because the air becomes dirty (contaminated or unclean).
The Earth is surrounded by a blanket of air (made up of various gases) called the atmosphere. The atmosphere helps protect the Earth and allow life to exist.
Without it, we would be burned by the intense heat of the sun during the day or frozen by the very low temperatures at nightsource
Overpopulation is an undesirable condition where the number of existing human population exceeds the carrying capacity of Earth. Overpopulation is caused by number of factors. Reduced mortality rate, better medical facilities, depletion of precious resources are few of the causes which results in overpopulation. It is possible for a sparsely populated area to become densely populated if it is not able to sustain life.
