Pollution and other environmental problems are resulting from the way that many countries are developing and becoming rich. Some think this cannot be avoided.

Environmentalists today are extremely anxious about the unprecedented growth in the rate of pollution and related environmental problems. However, it seems to many that this would continue as long as nations across the world seek progress and pride. I too this in a similar way.
The first and the foremost reason why I have this opinion is because of the fact that human needs are rocketing due to the swelling population. In order to meet these diverse needs, governments have to opt for various developmental activities. As these needs are innumerable, it should be directly proportional to such actions. Any such action has some sort of negative impact on the nature. Therefore, the damage is unavoidable.
Another factor is the necessity of an accelerated change in the needs of the modern man. To be precise, after the introduction of computer, there occurred tremendous changes in the way which people live. For example, one can tolerate homesickness better than abstaining himself from the social media for a week.These changing technological necessities persuade him to find advanced ways of diluting the nature. Finally, the lack of availability of non polluting and eco-friendly raw materials in the process of development has left humans with no option, but to exploit the environment.
I do understand there are some alternatives such as the use of non-conventional energy sources (solar and wind energy ) and the adoption of so called ‘sustainable development’.However, I feel that this can be hardly adopted to reach a wider range of population.
To conclude, admitting the fact that there are some ways to mitigate the effects of pollution and related environmental problems, I think, one has to absorb that these problems would stay intact unless a true solution is designed.
