How to Save Our World

We are closely connected to our natural surroundings. Our bodies are, in part, made up of water, we need clean air to breathe, and to grow nutritious food we need good, fertile soils. We could live in cooperation with nature, however, we should ask ourselves whether respect should be focused on every living being, or should we only respect living things that care for conservation, such as populations, species, ecosystems and landscapes? Perhaps the solution for the individual species has to do with their ability to survive, grow and reproduce.

Increasing populations impact local and global environments by depleting ecosystems which depend heavily on human resources. These values center on growth and rely on technology to reduce environmental stress, deal with natural resource depletion and biodiversity loss. Loss of biodiversity is a major concern of conservation scientists. Their focus on trying to protect plants and animals and sustaining viable portions of species and habitats includes the conservation of natural resources that humanity needs.

The current sustainability concerns are air quality, carbon pollution, clean water, degradation of the soil, waste management, energy and natural resource depletion. The existing challenges and struggles affecting sustainability can benefit from information technology which can improve the environmental, economic, and efficiency characteristics of goods and services, reducing waste, as well as minimizing our over usage of natural resources.
