Do you know what is the biggest threat to our environment..?? "Our society's indifference towards environmental protection".It is a matter of shame for us because we know everything and understands it, yet we are still silently ignoring everything. Today's column will highlight people's apathy towards environmental protection.

We are living in an era that is being called the best era of human history. We are the people of the 21st century. Now we have all kinds of information available. We have made excellent progress in the fields of science and technology. Our way of living has changed, now we are more educated and aware than ever before. It is a big thing that we started by making our tools with stones and reached AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology. Now we are talking about life not only on Earth but also on Mars, it has become very minor for us.

This is all appreciated. But we did all these development only for ourselves, we became so blind in our selfishness that we left nothing to fulfil for other beings. To fulfil our interest, we have damaged the environment to such an extent that it is now going through a serious crisis. And this crisis in the environment is increasing rapidly day by day and it is also being ignored. Despite knowing and understanding everything, we are still ignoring it. We are still only seeing our selfishness.

We are still not giving up the habits that are harming our environment the most. Shall we still call ourselves educated and aware human beings…?? Humans have directly and indirectly damaged the environment. The list of factors that damage the environment is increasing day by day.

Out of these, the list of the major issues are:

1). Climate change.

2). Deforestation.

3). Electronic waste pollution.

4). Overexploitation of natural resources.

5). Overpopulation.

6). Plastic pollution.

7). Water pollution.

8). Ocean acidification.

9). Loss of biodiversity.

10). Contamination of rivers and ponds.

I have only highlighted a few issues. We all know that this list is getting longer. Every habit of humans is creating danger for other organisms. We have only increased our supremacy on the Earth and it is constantly increasing. We have extinct many other species and many are on the verge of extinction. From the creatures living on the land to the creatures living in the sea and the birds flying in the sky, none of them has been left out. Every day animals are being ruthlessly killed for our food, beauty products, and other ingredients. Sometimes they are killed or imprisoned just for their hobbies. Each of our habits is becoming a curse for the environment.
