Transcript of CAUSES AND EFFECTS OF NATURAL RESOURSES MISUSE

Temperature
These are termed as
abiotic
components.
The biological components are:
Plants
Animals
The physical components of the environment are :
Soil
Air
Causes and effects of natural resources misuse
The Environment influences an organism's life in many ways. It is everything that surrounds an organism and it includes physical and biological components.
Water
Light
Collectively referred to as
biotic
components
CAUSES AND EFFECTS OF NATURAL RESOURSES MISUSE
Air, water, soil, minerals, coal, petroleum, animals and plants are referred to as natural resources.
Exhaustible Natural Resource:

The exhaustible natural resources are limited in nature and are liable to be degraded in quantity and quality by human activities. Examples are forests, soil, wild animals, minerals, fossil fuels etc.
What is Misuse of Natural Resources?
Misuse of natural resources refers to excessive use, destructive use or achieving imbalance between resources either individually or in combination. Misuse of resources can also be direct or indirect. Direct misuse refers to such situations where the resource is directly destroyed or overused. But, many times, some resources are indirectly put to misuse.
Causes for Misuse of Natural Resources

1)Commercial interests like trading in products out of natural resources.
2) Ignorance on necessity to preserve natural resources.
3) Deliberate negligence on destruction of natural resource.
4) Entertainment / recreational / aesthetic interest.
5) Extreme population pressure.
6) Self interest of human beings over the interest to retain natural resources.
7) International trade and commitments.
8) Loop holes of provisions of law.
9) Food interest.
10) Luxuries required for man.
11) Increased industrial requirement.
12) Expectations of instantaneous returns.
Effects
Loss of forest area.
Lost of agricultural land.
Global Warming.
Erosion.
Pollution.
Approximately 40% of the world's agricultural land is seriously degraded.}
Tectonic or isostatic uplift in the region
The 4 Rs

Reduce:

If we reduce the amount of garbage, there will be less garbage to dump in landfills. Packaging is a serious
part of the problem. We should buy products that have no packaging , donate old clothes and goods,
recharge batteries, share books and newspapers …

Reuse :

If we can’t reduce, we can reusee. This means
repairing damaged appliances, using empty
containers, any buying durable goods (as opposed to
disposable ones)
Recycle :

When a thing cannot be reused, we can recycle it –
that is, reprocess it as a new object. We should buy
recyclable products.

Recover :

Industries can recover energy from non-reusable
waste. An example is energy recovery from landfill
gas.

Types of Natural Resources
Inexhaustible Natural Resource:

The inexhaustible natural resources are unlimited in nature, and they are not likely to be exhausted by human activities. Example are solar radiation, air, water, precipitation (rainfall, snow fall, etc.,) and atomic power.
