There are greater chances that we and our future generations will eventually live in a world where it will be hard to find resources. Water shortages, food insecurities, and clean air unavailability will become a norm.
The growing human population, urbanization, and consumerism have accentuated the pace at which our limited resources are depleting. In addition, the extensive use of fossil fuels is contributing to the rapid increase in levels of carbon emissions in the atmosphere, which is leading to climate change, weather vagaries, and rising temperatures.
