Nature and Environmental Awareness After Corona Virus

After the corona virus, which has influenced the whole world in recent days, on social media, we see the news that nature has taken back what people got from it. This should make us think more about nature and the environment ...

Today, I will try to share my thoughts about nature and environmental awareness. All of us, as the foreign currency we are interested in during the day has risen, has come down, the political conflicts in the news, insults made by frivolous people and many other media like this are under our bombardment. To me, the danger will come from neither foreign exchange nor politicians nor such economic crises. The destruction of nature and the environment, which we ignore danger, do not show interest in a bit and destroy with our ignorance, will be destruction. The population of the world is increasing day by day. Accordingly, global warming is also increasing. One of the biggest reasons for this is the greenhouse gases that we release into the atmosphere. By exceeding certain standards, we pollute the atmosphere and poison life both for ourselves and other living things.

Seas, oceans are getting hotter. Many creatures are threatened by global warming. Corals die because of this. Nature warns us with the untimely weather changes, storms and unexpected rains day by day. In fact, you are shouting head to head and hurting me. But we, as if human beings were wonderful, we are coded to brutally destroy without listening to nature. The pain of this selfish and cruel chain of behavior, our children will judge us by facing a much heavier picture of future generations. We have no right to do this. We still continue to bury the areas we live in formlessly to concrete and destroy the green areas without futurism. While it is necessary to emphasize the possibility of cutting trees and forest fires being affordable, it is not a modern behavior to see imported plants. Do you think that the destroyed nature will replace it? Neither us, nor our children can witness the artificial nature of that artificial nature. He can't die for life.

Well, how long will this unconsciousness and indifference continue? Why do we pull our cars under the trees when we are full of timeless or we shelter under it ourselves. We do not think when cutting, we cut like a palette terminator. We must be aware of the contradiction here. Because Nature says "enough!" We begin to hope for the heart we destroyed.


What an inconsistent species we are. We don't know what we want, what we do. Of course, even some people make this slaughter for the sake of rent. But neither rent, money or anything else will keep us alive before nature. Today, we are the only inconsistent creature in nature. We reproduce inconsistently, inconsistently we fill our refrigerators and then smell half of them and throw them away. In the 21st century, we are still burning fossil fuel, and we speak with pride as if it were a great meeting. We are a selfish destructive species that lives selfishly, without ever considering the end. In nature no grief does not destroy another species. Or it is not hunted like a massacre. This is a human behavior only. The next 50 years is really a very serious problem for us, such as plastic waste and pollution. Whatever we eat, we throw them all into the sea. I always say this and I will continue, please do not throw it away !!!!!!!.

Do not throw anything that nature cannot digest into the sea. Even if this disappears from your eyes, nature will accumulate them and vomit back to us. This is very easy to prove today and anyone can observe it. Stroll to the coastal strips where the lodos are high and affected and observe those human waste on the coast. There are even old people who know the old age. Perhaps they will scan the shore in hopes of finding fallen valuables. These are called Lodoscu. All the coastal dirt that you will see are very few of the wastes that the sea blows back to us. Take a tour and observe for yourself, maybe you will understand better the condition of the seas, state ... Imagine that the man pours concrete into the nest of bees so that the bees do not sting their child and destroy the bees. What can be expected from the generation that such an ignorant movement will raise?

It's nice when eating honey, isn't it? It is as if bees exist for us and you think they made that honey for us. The bee has no other power to produce honey. Whereas, we will learn when destroying bees and pollination cannot be achieved, and when many plant species will disappear, they will perish in the plants that feed on plants and this will harm us. Bee is just one of these examples. There are too many examples to count.

We must be friendly with nature and the environment before it is too late. This is our duty as a citizen of the world ...

    10 Ways Humans Impact the Environment:
     1. Overpopulation Survival used to mean repopulating. That, however, is quickly becoming true for the opposite as we reach the maximum carrying capacity that our planet can sustain. The effects of overpopulation are quite severe, with one of the most severe being the degradation of the environment.
     2.  Pollution is everywhere. From the trash thrown out on the freeway, to the millions of metric tons of pollution pumped into the atmosphere every year- it's obvious, pollution and waste are inescapable. Pollution is so bad that to date, 2.4 billion people do not have access to clean water sources.
     3.  Global warming is arguably the greatest cause of impact on the environment. The largest of causes emanating through CO₂ levels from respiration to more detrimental causes like burning fossil fuels and deforestation.
    4. Climate change is closely connected to historical developement of industry and technology. As global temperatures increase, Earth's weather patterns will drastically change. While some areas will experience longer growing seasons, others will become barren wastelands as water will deplete in vast areas, turning once floral regions into deserts.
    5. Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have been a major contributor to the survival and prosperity of humans. GMO's are selected bred crops or crops that have had DNA directly implanted into it in order to give an advantage to the crop, whether that be to sustain colder temperatures, require less water, or yield more product.
    6. Ocean acidification is caused when CO₂ dissolves into the ocean bonding with sea water creating carbonic acid. The acid reduces the pH levels in the water, essentially changing the Ocean acidity by 30% in the last 200 years according to analysis - a level that the ocean has not been at in over 20 million years.
    7. Water Pollution -Every year over 8 millions tons of garbage dumped into the ocean. Not only is garbage introduced into the oceans, but also the excessive amounts of fertilizer that finds its way into the ocean through rains, floods, winds, or dumped in excess right into the largest producer of oxygen we have.
    We deserve to sit at home!!!
