Man –Turning To Be Nature’s Friend Once More?

manNew hope has dawned as studies reveal that the human race is becoming more environment friendly .It looks like people have finally realized that destroying nature and natural resources for their selfish purposes will do more harm than good. Earlier human activities had brought nature on the verge of destruction. Now people are making a conscious effort to prevent man made destruction and slowly bring back what they have destroyed.

If we take into consideration the time period from 1993 to 2009, studies show that the human population rate has risen by 23 percent. The world economy has also increased by 153 percent. However this has not made any disastrous effects on nature as the rate of human footprints has risen by only 9 percent. This clearly is evidence enough that people are growing more protective of Mother Earth. Also they are making more efficient usage of natural resources.

The change is happening, however is slower in some regions. There are still areas where human misuse of natural resources is occurring at alarming rates. Destruction of natural resources is high in many parts of the world, inspite of global warnings. Steps should be taken in such areas to educate people to stop such practices which in turn will threaten their own existence.

The imprint of human pressure has largely reduced in areas like
· Sahara desert
· Gobi desert
· Australian deserts,
· Tropical forests of the Congo basins.
· Regions of the Amazon

The new trend in wealthy nations shows that the human pressure has decreased greatly. However scientists argue that this may not only be due to the fact that the population is more aware of nature preservation. The reason can also be that they are simply depending on other regions for food supply and other demands.

What the end result will be is yet to be seen. So let’s wait and hope for the best.
