Our natural environment consists of all living species on earth and the conditions surrounding them. This is the case when we talk about ‘natural environment’. Climate, weather, living organisms, energy, gravity – all these were already here or happening here without any human intervention. These natural environments changed to artificial or man made environment by human activities such as urban settings, agricultural land etc. Every organism will transform their natural surroundings into an artificial one to increase their comfort and safety. But as human species are we going too far to make our own comfort zone by polluting the environment? Pollution and climate change is real and it is visible everywhere, but humans are living in deniel.
