Environmentalism is the movement of the 21st century, or at least the movement of the modern world. However, if you search “save the world” or “environmental issues” in Google you will be faced with the dilemma of trying to decipher which environmental issue is more pressing and therefore which issue you should put your time, energy (and probably money) towards.
The fact that we as a species are unable to collectively agree on which environmental issue is more urgent than another is a scary reflection on us, but in the interests of keeping this article “on topic” we best leave that discussion for another time. In terms of the range of environmental issues currently circulating the internet and popular media what I have tried to do is give a bit of a lay-mans account of what are the main environmental problems facing us.
