A Look Into The Current State Of Natural Resources Worldwide


World’s natural resources is decreasing rapidly and is going beyond the ability of the planet to absorb this and recover from it. The rate which the downgrade is increasing on a daily basis across the globe and the environmental studies that has been conducted reveal this fact.

According to the study that was conducted by more than one thousand scientists, brought together more than 160 countries together under the UN Environment Program. Without taking immediate action, it is impossible that many in the world would not be able to live at this rate.

Scarcity of water is one of the most common effects of this degradation. Especially the poorest countries are getting affected the most because of this. The condition with the developing countries is that they are unable to feed themselves and this leads to hardship for everyone. The situation does not seem to improve. Nor does it look like it is going to get better in future.

Sources of water in the planet are under threat due to the severe increase in population, climate change, urbanization, more levels of water consumption and degradation of lands that were acting as water resources to everyone. The study is aimed for helping the effort to fight against climate change and other environmental issues that are threatening to resurface.

UNEP has found that if the damage continues as it is now, despite the effort made by the governments, it is going to lead to depletion of natural resources such as water, land and sea. If we do not change from the way we are treating the planet now, it is going to only fasten the decline that is already happening.

Many counties have put in place various environment friendly measures that is beneficial for millions of people. However, it is a fact that many of these measures are being used. They are just there yielding no benefits, creating no impact whatsoever on its objectives.

Involving Kids For Innovation In Science And Technology


Jacob Leggette is a nine-year-old inventor who has printed everything with the help of a 3-D printer he had invented. He has created a bubble-blowing wand and even a model of a White house. Not only did he print these, he also met President Obama and shared his inventions. He also recommended to President Obama to have a kid as a science advisor. The president fell in love with the idea so much that he immediately proposed to bring in a group of kids for sharing their ideas and inputs in science and bring in their innovations. This way, the kids get a first-hand experience and knowledge about science and makes them interested in learning more about them.

kids-buildingPresident Obama is interested in hearing from kids across the country to share their inventions and tell him about what can be done for improving the field of science, technology and discovery. Whether it is climate change or curing cancer, the best use of technology can help in improving the lives of people. Even if you are interested in getting people ported to Mars, you’re welcome to share your ideas says the President.

President Obama further added that Kids are inspiring and they look at even the biggest problems as if it is something they can solve. They are very confident about finding solutions and using science for this only broadens their exposure in learning the subject. Age is never a barrier for finding new things. Kids are not afraid of asking questions and getting and understanding. That makes the even more inquisitive than they can be.

If you have a kid who is great at finding solutions to science problems, encourage them and help them in finding more inspiration to do greater things. Don’t be afraid to share them with the President himself. Who knows your kid might be on the way to the white house next season.
