Environment – A Vast Expanding Subject

The environment is a vast and complex place. The environment is made up of living organisms such as plants, animals, microorganisms, rocks, and the like and it also includes the outer space, known as the void, dark radiation and beyond. The environment consists of living things since these things are the basic foundation of life and they make up the majority of the living world that we inhabit today. The environment is also made up of non-living things such as geology, anthropology, ethology, linguistics, physiology, microbiology, psychology, archeology, sociology, anthropology, and physiology. Thus the environment includes everything that we do not see with our own eyes and which is not visible to the naked eye.


The natural world or the earth encompasses all living and non living things occurring simultaneously, which means in this case everything existing in the environment is not artificial. Therefore, the word is most commonly used to describe the Earth or any particular portions of the Earth with a large amount of life. Today, more emphasis is being placed on the importance of the environment and more than ever people are recognizing the benefits of preserving the environment for future generations. Preserving the environment involves various practices aimed at reducing or limiting the amount of damage to ecosystems caused by human activities such as carbon dioxide emissions and global warming.

There are several interrelated factors involved in the environment, which directly influences its stability. For instance, the rate of climate change can be influenced by the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and this has increased debate between environmentalists and traditional scientists. Rapid climate change is an expected result of increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. This is believed to be one of the causes of drought in some regions and floods in others. Thus, preserving the environment requires a concerted effort by humans, animals, ecosystems, and the natural world.
