Some threats do come from humanity itself.

The effects of global warming are of concern to both environment and human race.

Recent observations of rapid climate change like rising sea levels, glacier retreats and altered patterns of agriculture are direct consequences of human negligence.

If we continue to pollute the environment, the effects of global warming and worldwide pandemic will definitely come swifter and far more deadly.

If everyone can just cut down on consumption of meat or usage of more environmental-friendly products, we can all make a difference.

Remember, as the late Gandhi said:

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

The pictures below depict some serious conditions in countries that put profit before conservation

A cow grazing amidst the piles of rubbish in Dhaka. With over 8000 slums, thousands of people work everyday in the polluted environment of Bangladesh’s capital. The city is known to have the 2nd most polluted water supply in the world, contaminated by industrial waste and human excrement.
