Man's Influence on Planet Earth's Environment

Man's Influence on Planet Earth's Environment


When man first appeared on earth planet, he less realised the role of the environment surrounding him. Because of his then existing knowledge he lived within the provisions of earth's natural surrounding. This in effect did not disturb the equilibrium between man and planet earth environment. Perhaps this could have been due to absence of scientific knowledge and technologies then! As millenniums moved ahead man on earth grew curious of his surroundings and started exploring. Such explorations increased curiosity more and more. This lead to inventions and improvisations finally leading to greed.

Greed ushered in racism, territories, kingdoms, warfare, mining, transportations, and advancements in all associated areas of man's greed. Man less realised that he is disturbing the environment equation of planet earth. Human beings multiplied and curiosities increased leading to discoveries and developments in all areas surrounding his living on planet earth! To what extent this development is what we see to day on this planet earth, almost beyond imagination of man living in 17th or 18th century.

The disturbance in earth environmental equation is now getting highlighted thro' changes in weather and sea levels. This was not perceptible nor could be envisaged during second world war or industrial advancements inclusive of jets mode of transportation and testing of modern warfare techniques till perhaps 30 years ago! Perhaps earths environmental equilibrium was undergoing changes by applying LeChatlier's principle to maintain its stability within the cosmetic system? Can we undue this by measures like carbon dioxide emission controls etc? Can there be a solution for restoring equation of man with earth environment thro' man's further progress like space exploration ?

You’re on the right track and your basic assumptions are absolutely correct. Keep digging. You’re just scratching the surface.

Man's greed is at the root of most of our problems here on Earth. Many solutions to our environmental problems have already been developed, but are perhaps being suppressed until the use of oil has wrung every available penny from it's target audience. We can only act as individuals in an effort to bring about change.

Indeed, environment have helped man alot, but man out of selfish desires choose to corrupt the environment. Man influnces the environment in so many ways: namely, through, cultivation on the land, transportation, governning,building of houses, to mention but a few. Man indeed is greed on the environment
