What are the social causes of the ecological crisis?

• lack of ecological scientific knowledge about natural resources, the laws of nature and the processes of interaction between the environment and humans;
• lack of professional environmental knowledge;
• a predatory method of production, which is characterized by the irrational use of natural resources without a simultaneous solution to the issues of their storage;
• lack of funds for environmental protection measures;
• resource development of the economy, a high degree of depreciation of fixed assets, a high share of the “shadow” economy in the use of natural resources, “localism”;
• low efficiency of environmental management mechanisms,
• seeming boundlessness of natural resources and self-cleaning processes,
• low level of environmental awareness and culture of the country’s population.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
