Human beings are dependent on the environment for continued survival. It is our responsibility to keep it clean and use natural resources in a sustainable way. Today, due to Environmental degradation there is depletion of natural resources which has led to the loss of livelihood, poverty, famine, weather extremes, species loss. It can be reduced by reducing our overall consumption of resources as our wildlife and flora depend on their natural environment We must learn to reuse, second-hand consumption should be promoted. While talking about climate change; In any place, we found six major controls of climate change Altitude, Latitude Wind System and Pressure, distance from the sea, current of the ocean and relief features. The air temperature in India decreases generally from the equator towards the poles. The temperature falls when we go from the earth’s surface to high altitudes. This is the reason that in the hot season the upper area is cold than the lower area. The Latitude and the altitude of a space decide the wind and pressure of any area and in the same way, it influences the rain system of that particular area. The climate of the coastal areas is also affected by ocean currents. The main cause of water pollution is organic and inorganic industrial waste and effluent discharged into rivers. Water pollution is mainly caused by petroleum refineries, chemicals, textile and dyeing, tanneries, electroplating industries detergents, acids, salts and heavy metals like lead and heavy metals like lead and mercury pesticides, fertilizers, a synthetic chemical with carbon, plastics and rubber, etc
