Global climate change brings many disasters like floods and droughts which pose great danger to human life. Pollution and greenhouse gases also affect agriculture adversely. Environmental degradation occupies the place of utmost importance when it comes to green debate. Environmental pollution can be reduced greatly by providing bathing water, pure air quality and access to neat and clean drinking water. These measures will ensure that the ambitions of climatic health and valuable environment are achieved at the earliest. In this research paper, I illustrate the international causes of degradation of environmental, climate change and its implication for agriculture growth. The paper argues that such certainty components can be projected by altering the current slowed perspectives on the problem talking the load from recent conceptual work on “cumulative change” as against” system change” to properly understand global environmental. Change and environmental degradation, the paper presents an approach to identify and use the” certainty components” it is strong point is that it help to warming. The research at hand is a review on the study survey associated by reduction of environment risk, water, air pollution, enhanced quality of water and betterment of climate factors.


Our health is related to the environment in which we exist. The environmental hazards and climate change impact human health directly and indirectly- directly our suffering due to harmful factors and indirectly by distorting our environment. The effect of depletion of natural resources such as water, air and soil is called environmental degradation. Climate change and environmental degradation are responsible for extinction of wildlife. The High Level panel lists environmental degradation and climate change among top threats facing the world today. The international body defines environmental degradation as the dwindling capacity of environment to fulfil our social and ecological needs. Human disturbance is the main reason behind global warming and environmental degradation. The biodiversity, flora and fauna that inhibit are the factors that determine the intensity of global warming and the impact on environment. Human activities also contribute greatly to the cause. Modern urbanization, industrialisation, and population explosion are the major causes of environmental pollution and climate change. Irresponsible human behaviour has proved fatal to the human existence itself.

Excessive use of automobiles and release of pollutants in the form of smoke have made air unfit for breathing. The population explosion, especially in urban areas has resulted in increased per-capita-automobile numbers, the use of which releases poisonous gases like cfcs, nitrogen oxide and carbon monoxide among many others. The earth’s temperature is rising day by day resulting in its getting warmer gradually. The polar ice cap is melting faster than ever. This is the direct result of man’s interference with nature.

Population growth results in increasing number of people who live in utter poverty, increasing population concentration and immense pressure on natural resources. This has resulted in dwindling natural resource base. Population pressure on arable land contributes to the continually shrinking productive resource base of the economy. Population and poverty control are the need of the hour. Without it, the health of the people will be at stake. Natural resources and technology also need a suitable environment to survive. For us to survive and leave a healthy environment for our children, we need to protect natural habitat and natural resources.
