Natural Resources is a true supporter of human life. Nature provides everything human needs, from the provision of food, clothing and shelter. Simply put, it can be concluded that human life depends on the situation and conditions of nature.
Historically we can know that in ancient times, humans lived in harmony with nature. Activity fulfillment needs at that time was not done with massive. Humans in those days manage natural resources according to their needs.
As the times progressed, civilization changed, human life changed. This change is marked by the increasing number of people and the increasing needs of human resources led to massive pengeolaan done.
Unfortunately, our nature has the limitation to withstand massive human exploration. Nature takes time to recover from the effects of human exploration.
The most massive natural resource being managed is forests. Since Indonesia proclaimed its independence, many forest management licenses have been issued. Since then deforestation has begun. To date, approximately 33 percent of Indonesia's forests are explored and exploited. Due to the massive management of this forest damage occurred.
One of the worst impacts of forest destruction is the reduced absorption of carbon dioxide so that the density of the amount of carbon in the Earth's atmosphere adds to the already densely packed greenhouse gas density in the Earth's atmosphere. This is due to the vital function of the forest is to absorb and store carbon for carbon balance on earth.
The greatest impact of greenhouse gas density is an increase in the temperature of the earth. The more the earth gets warmer until global warming occurs. The most obvious impact that is currently clearly visible from global warming is the ice at the poles of the earth melting so as to increase the volume of sea water. As a result the water level increases and threatens the land. Another impact of molten ice from the poles of the earth is the disruption of ocean currents and salinity of seawater.
Ocean currents are one component of the Earth's climate system. Changes in ocean currents affect climate conditions. Similarly, global warming is affecting the climate system in the atmosphere. Both of these cause changes to the climate.
Climate change is more harmful to human life. The weather is increasingly difficult to guess, thus destroying the cultivation system that farmers usually do. Added to the extreme weather that is causing crop failure everywhere. Imagine, if crop failure persists, our food security will be disrupted.
Whether we realize it or not, human activity is the main cause of climate change. Humans do activities that produce greenhouse gas emissions while the forest is cleared until it runs out.
If we look at the history of natural resource management, people increasingly greedy day and do not care for the sustainability of linkgungan and rights of the next generation to live with good environmental conditions.Then what can we do?
The first thing we need to understand is that greenhouse gas density is a major cause of climate change. So, the steps we need to do are the things that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
1. Let's Live Effectively
Change our consumptive way of life. Let's start calculating whether it is necessary for us to use and buy something. Consumptive life will only add to the bad management of natural resources. This is due to the law of supply and demand in the fulfillment of human needs. The more demand the production will be increased. That means that much of the natural resources are explored.
2. Get used to life without producing waste
In principle, any activity that does warming and burning definitely produces greenhouse gases. Generally, non-organic waste that can not be decomposed naturally by mikoorganisme in the soil contains a plastic element. It takes hundreds of years until a plastic decomposes in nature. Therefore, humans take the initiative to burn plastic waste. The burning of one plastic contributes a lot of greenhouse gases. Moreover, millions of tons of plastic waste generated by the world's population. Not only that, it turns out in the production process also involves the burning of plastic raw materials until the element expands and becomes plastic.
3. Do not Throw Unused Goods Right away
Prolonging the life of an item will decrease the amount of waste. That means waste management is generally done by burning will be reduced. For example, clothes that seem not up to date can you recycle another item. Or design other model clothes with unused clothes it. Can also donate your unused items to people in need. In addition to being able to do good for others, you also have acted to reduce waste.
4. Spend your food, do not waste it
Do you know that the agricultural sector is the most emitting sector of greenhouse gases, ranging from land transfers from forests to farms and livestock, to agricultural processes, to the production and distribution of food. It turns out that not only agricultural processes that produce greenhouse gases, but also the waste of food that is discarded. Every year the world community leaves millions of tons of food. The rest of the decomposing food emits greenhouse gases. According to data released by the Food Agricultural Organization (FAO), the amount of greenhouse gases resulting from the decay of leftover foods is 4.4 megatons. So, start now eat your food yes!5. Let's use public transportation!
The number of cars that are very much without followed by the increase in the area of ??roads cause congestion. Whether or not it is realized, congestion also accounts for very large emissions of greenhouse gases.
6. Follow the green movement by planting trees in the yard of the house
As the government seeks forest restoration, let's also help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by planting trees. The one tree you plant will have a wide impact on your life and environment.
Let's Keep the Earth because our Earth is just one. Let's be part of a cool generation that cares about the environment.
