What is environment?
Environment is something you are very familiar with. It's everything that makes up our surroundings and affects our ability to live on the earth - the air we breathe, the water that covers most of the earth's surface, the plants and animals around us, and much more.
Exactly, environment is the sum of all surroundings of living organisms (plants, animals, microbes etc.) and nonliving thinks, including natural forces and other living things, which provide conditions for development and growth as well as of danger and damage. In an environment, living things are called BIOTIC COMPONENTS and the non living things are called ABIOTIC COMPONENTS.
In recent years, scientists have been carefully observing the ways that people affect the environment. They have found that we are causing air pollution, deforestation, acid rain, and other problems that are dangerous both to the earth and to ourselves. These days, when you hear people talk about “the environment”, they are often referring to the overall condition of our planet, or how healthy it is!
