Environmental issues are the harmful effects of human activities on the environment. These include pollution, over-population, waste disposal, climate change, global warming, and the greenhouse effect. Various environment protection programs are being practiced at the individual, organizational, and government levels to establish a balance between man and the environment.
Eco Survival is a book that talks about the solutions to environmental issues. Nowadays, no field is aloof from ecological problems. Usually, there is a lot of talk about the causes and effects, but lesser think about the solutions. We have made a small effort to put the ecological issues and solutions from this book. People are aware of some environmental problems, but they don't know how to mitigate this. However, some problems that are unknown to common people, like deleting just a spam email from the mailbox, can reduce carbon emissions and save our planet. Newly arrived global warming issues like cryptocurrency mining increases greenhouse gas emissions which can increases global warming beyond 20C.
The book discusses waste management, bioherbicides, ethnomedicine, eco-tourism, eco-bricks, ecocity, and the role of nanotechnology to mitigate pollution and reduce environmental pollution with the help of Genetically Modified organisms many more. The book is a small initiative to create awareness about environmental concerns and how Eco-friendly sustainable options could be available if we can put effort into saving mother earth.
