Environmental problems are all around us. Some of us acknowledge them; others pretend that they are not there. The reality is that if something is not done soon our planet may be destroyed. We tend to think that environmental problems are not our problem, that the government should sort them out. They only become our problem when they affect us. Natural resources are running out; the world is running out of space for vegetation; we cut down forests to build skyscrapers. These things are all part of today’s reality.
