TE ENVIRONMENT by Mind Map: TE ENVIRONMENT

1. OVERPOPULATION

1.1. "Provide universal access to safe and effective contraceptive options for both sexes.""Guarantee education through secondary school for all, especially girls.""Eradicate gender bias from law, economic opportunity, health, and culture.""Offer age-appropriate sexuality education for all students.""End all policies that reward parents financially based on the number of children they have."

2. PROBLEMS

2.1. 1. Pollution: Pollution of air, water and soil require millions of years to recoup. Industry and motor vehicle exhaust are the number one pollutants.

2.2. 2. Global Warming: Climate changes like global warming is the result of human practices like emission of Greenhouse gases.

2.3. 3. Overpopulation: The population of the planet is reaching unsustainable levels as it faces shortage of resources like water, fuel and food

2.4. 4. Natural Resource Depletion: Natural resource depletion is another crucial current environmental problems.

3. SOLUTIONS

3.1. POLUTION

3.1.1. *Use public mode of transportation: Encourage people to use more and more public modes of transportation to reduce pollution.*Conserve energy: Switch off fans and lights when you are going out. Large amount of fossil fuels are burnt to produce electricity. *Understand the concept of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle: Do not throw away items that are of no use to you. *Emphasis on clean energy resources: Clean energy technologies like solar, wind and geothermal are on high these days.*Use energy efficient devices: CFL lights consume less electricity as against their counterparts.

3.2. GLOBAL WARMING

3.2.1. Boosting energy efficiency: The energy used to power, heat, and cool our homes, businesses, and industries is the single largest contributor to global warming.Greening transportation: The transportation sector's emissions have increased at a faster rate than any other energy-using sector over the past decade.Revving up renewables: Renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, geothermal and bioenergy are available around the world.Phasing out fossil fuel electricity: Dramatically reducing our use of fossil fuels—especially carbon-intensive coal—is essential to tackle climate change.Managing forests and agriculture: Taken together, tropical deforestation and emissions from agriculture represent nearly 30 percent of the world's heat-trapping emissions.

4. NATURAL DISASTERS

4.1. Natural disasters such as flood, fire, earthquake, tornado and windstorm affect thousands of people every year. You should know what your risks are and prepare to protect yourself, your family and community. Recognizing an impending hazard and knowing what to do to protect yourself and your family will help you take effective steps to prepare beforehand and aid recovery after the event. Some of the things you can do to prepare for the unexpected, such as assembling a supply kit and developing a family emergency plan, are the same for all types of hazards. However each emergency is unique and knowing the actions to take for each threat will impact the specific decisions and preparations you make.

5. HUMAN ACTIONS

5.1. Using chemical fertilizers, insecticides and herbicides to increase production actually pollutes the air, soil and water with toxic chemicals. Fertilizer run-offs cause toxic algal blooms that kill aquatic animals.Removing trees and other plants to increase areas of cultivation causes habitat loss and threatens the survival of numerous species of animals and plants.

6. NATURAL DISASTERS

6.1. Natural disasters are extreme, sudden events caused by environmental factors that injure people and damage property. Earthquakes, windstorms, floods, and disease all strike anywhere on earth, often without warning. As examples, we've chosen disasters that have occurred around the world throughout history.
