Early We had discussed 8 most dangerous human activities that harm the environment.  This article is a continuation of that entry. You may have noticed we have missed several other human activities from that list. We are glad to see your suggestions and opinions in the commenting area. Here in this article we are going to discuss about "10 Threats that we are going to face in 21st century."

Global Warming

As a result of over Deforestation and emission of excess amount of oxides of carbon from power plants and vehicles there has been formed a green house effect around the Earth. Global warming would leads to water scarcity and extinction of several living organisms.

Water Scarcity


Causes: Destruction of water resources, Global warming, Deforestation, Decrease in rain water
Affects: Extinction, diseases,

Energy Scarcity

Causes: Great dependence on traditional energy sources, slow growth for renewable energy technology, over use of energy sources (exploitation)
Affects: Slower developments, loss of economic stability of countries, International war for energy.

Food Scarcity and Food Poisoning

Causes: population explosion, conversion of green farm areas to concrete farms, diet style
Affects: Extinction, war

Climate Change


Causes: global warning, over exploitation of minerals and resources, pollution of water bodies.
Affects: Mental retardation, diseases, extinction of Living organisms

Natural hazards such as Flood,earth quake,hurricane etc

Causes: Deforestation,reduction in water absorption capacity of soil,
Affects: affects farms, habitat loss,difficulty in transportation

Reduction in ground water level

Causes: Over exploitation of under water reservoirs, deforestation, use of plastic covers

Affects: Water scarcity

Sea level Rise and Decrease in Land Area

Causes: Ice melting at Poles due to Global warning.
Affects: Sea level rise, total land area reduction,

Infectious Diseases, Carcinogens and mutation


Causes: Radiation, ozone layer depletion, nuclear reactor explosions, mobile towers
Affects:  mutation, death of living organisms

Reduction in Rain water



Ice melting in poles
