同时，我们注意到，世界各国的经济增长都发生了变化，这仅仅是因为影响环境的因素也在影响经济。人口的增长，人们生活方式的差异和产生的垃圾数量也在环境破坏中扮演着重要的角色。世界各国的经济增长率大约已在下文提供的参考图片中提到(Sargent and Sargent, 1991)。
Discuss major lifestyle changes that some humans need to adopt in order to provide sustainable solutions to minimize earth’s current environmental degradation threatening life (on planet earth). In order words propose lifestyle changes that will drastically reduce the excessive and irresponsible consumption of resources and consequent production of waste (by certain humans)
It is understood that earth is the only planet which is capable of sustaining life. Early days had shown that human beings were happy living in caves and dwelled upon without the idea of changing the lifestyle or creating man made things for other purposes. However, fire was discovered, tools were made, and the civilizations began settling and marking their own territories. The development and the processes continued and thus we have the world that we have now (Bortman, 2003).
At the same time, one notices that the economic growth of all the countries all over the world has changed, and that is simply because the factors which are affecting the environment are also affecting the economy. The rise in population, the difference in the lifestyle of the people and the amount of waste generated also plays an important role in environmental destruction. The economic growth rate of the countries all over the world approximately has been mentioned in the images which have been provided below for references (Sargent and Sargent, 1991).
It can be deciphered from the images that with the increase in population all over the world, the economy and its progress have increased and so has the contribution of each sector towards the national income. But when all the above said increases, it also increases the rate at which the resources are used also increases. The after effects of such usage which is usually an excessive generation of waste.
