What needs does a person satisfy at the expense of nature?

We know that a person adapts to the environment (clothing, housing, lifestyle). But man also changes the environment: he drains swamps, extracts minerals, irrigates. Often he changes nature inadvertently, without expecting unpredictable end results.

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.
