The main factors of environmental degradation and areas of their manifestation.

Environmental degradation is a process that reduces the ability of ecosystems to maintain a stable quality of life. In general terms, an ecosystem can be defined as the interaction of living organisms with their environment. Environmental degradation is a decrease in biodiversity, land devastation, the death of aquatic ecosystems, soil degradation, and air pollution.
The following factors lead to this:
demographic factor;
urbanization;
industrial and energy factor;
waste production;
mining;
emission of harmful substances into the atmosphere and many others.
The areas of their manifestation are mainly associated with the places of human settlement, its economic activities (for example, mining, deforestation, pass away from settlements). And when emissions of harmful substances into the atmosphere, the atmosphere suffers altogether.
Relating to nature and its riches in this way, people seemed to forget that there is no other source than the biosphere and its resources to maintain the existence of life on Earth. And with modern power supply and advanced technologies, the speed of use of resources far exceeds the possibilities of their reproduction. Such a lifestyle today is becoming detrimental to humanity. A way out of the critical situation that has developed can only be found if environmentally sound management, reasonable relationships with Nature, global implementation of strategies of reasonable self-restriction, resource conservation, the introduction of new environmental management technologies that do not contradict the laws of functioning and development of the biosphere.
