Nowadays, the topic of environmental protection is more relevant than ever. But maybe you've heard people say things like:
"Oh, that's just the way nature works, species die out. There is no reason to protect the environment, because that is just the natural way of things. The stronger survives, the weaker dies. That's Life!"
When it comes to environmental protection, you may be met with prejudice here and there.
That's why today we're giving you 7 arguments why environmental protection is important after all!
1. Creating jobs and stimulating the economy
Throughout Germany, lots of people deal with nature and environmental protection every day. Whether organic farming or energy generation from wind and weather.
The maintenance of parks creates jobs. Tourism in German national parks also creates jobs. So environmental protection boosts our economy and creates jobs!
2. Promotion of research and inventions
Humans copied certain functions such as the self-cleaning effect from nature - for example from the lotus blossom. Many paints and dirt-repellent surfaces can be traced back to the way this flower works.
Water rolls off their leaves, taking all dirt particles with it. Another example is the idea for the first airplane. This idea came to man while observing the wings of birds more closely.
People are fascinated and inspired by nature - it has always been like that. If we don't pay enough attention to our environment, the animal and plant world will disappear over time and an entire ecosystem will collapse. An example that has been present for years would be the global melting of glaciers.
3. Prevention of natural disasters
Nature also serves as a balance between everything. For example, forests bind the CO2 and convert it into oxygen, which we finally breathe.
This mechanism is also important for contributing to a slowing down of climate change. It is therefore important to preserve green areas and forests or to replant them. This is a big issue, especially in the cities.
Furthermore, encourage forests rainfall and play an important role in the theme Water cycle, because this in turn is related to our drinking water.
It is also interesting that forests are very helpful when it comes to preventing landslides and avalanches.
In New Zealand, so-called climate refugees were recognized for the first time in 2014. For example, there were families who were forced to flee their country due to natural disasters.
We must therefore not forget the importance of environmental protection organizations, because environmental protection is a global topic. The various influences of the ecosystem do not stop at political borders. You should definitely be aware of that.
In everyday consumption, it is important to keep in mind that we use and consume global natural resources. We drink exotic juices, eat chocolate containing palm oil, and, and, and.
Our clothes are often made of cotton. This is grown industrially and often shipped and transported halfway around the world. These long distances cause CO2 emissions and thus damage the climate.
We therefore recommend that you buy your clothes second hand and avoid buying new clothes. It's about taking responsibility and consuming more consciously for ourselves and our environment.
6. Environmental protection = protection of people
Protecting nature also means protecting ourselves. So if we deal more consciously with nature, we protect our survival at the same time. Careless handling and a lack of natural resources, such as water shortage, can also result in wars and crises.
For example, if bees die out, this can result in harvest failures. They pollinate about 80 percent of our useful and wild plants. That would mean for the future: no honey, little fruit and vegetables will hardly be available anymore. Bees are a big factor in global food production.
In any case, this failure can lead to malnutrition - and not only in the “poorer” countries.
7. It's just plain fun
Pure nature is simply the most beautiful. Just spending ten minutes in the countryside can lift our spirits and make us feel a lot better. Tourism regions such as the Berchtesgadener Land in southern Bavaria advertise with “nature experiences”.
You can go cycling, hiking or swimming at the lake. These activities are fun for most people and it is precisely these experiences that attract visitors. Whether young or old, there is something for everyone.
We are all part of the bigger picture. We should always be aware of that. We belong to the cycle of nature and should therefore behave respectfully towards it.
Because what people often forget is that they are not above everything. We depend on nature - not the other way around. If we interfere too much with nature, we will feel it clearly.
In the meantime, however, we can tell from the record temperatures in summer and the mild winters that something is wrong with the climate. The global temperature is rising and global warming is in full swing.
No matter how small the changes you make in your everyday life - they definitely help to protect nature.
