From deforestation to unpredictable global warming and the Covid-19 pandemic, everything we have seen in 2021. Humans are dying, our wild animals are losing their shelters, and the marine life isn’t safer in the seawater.

Where is our mother earth heading towards? Will these environmental issues take our lives in the upcoming years? If you research on the internet about Mexican environmental issues, you’ll realize many negative environmental changes. In simpler words, our biodiversity is at stake, and this world is no more the perfect place to live.

Climate Change

In recent years, US environment authorities have released various reports stating that 2021 is the crucial year where the whole world will experience some negative climatic changes. As a result, all the UN countries should take some steps to curb carbon emissions and avoiding the ozone layer from getting more holes. 

Above all, various reports have claimed that global temperature has surged to 2 degrees in 2021 than in previous years. The reason behind fluctuations in climate change is all because of carbon emissions released from the industries. 

However, many countries are establishing greenhouse gas emitters for curbing the carbon emissions reaching the ozone layer. Due to the establishment of greenhouse gas emitters, there was a drop in the unemployment rate. The major climatic changes can be seen in the Antarctica region, where the temperature is increasing, and marine life is decreasing day by day.  

Food Waste

This was one of the newest Mexican environmental issues in 2019 when various food movements were started. Believe it or not, more than 1 billion of food is wasted daily, which is enough to feed 3 billion people. 

As per various reports, most food is wasted in China and United States, and the numbers are increasing day by day. China is the highest populated country; hence, it stays on the top when it comes to food wastage. 

Surprisingly, food waste is a major issue in highly developed countries like United States, Canada, Germany, China, and Europe. In the United States, more than 50% of the daily produces is throw away just because veggies and fruits aren’t fresh and looking ugly. 

Plastic Pollution

From childhood until now, we’re hearing numerous things about replacing plastic with paper, but the figures say something else. Back in 2020, even after the Covid-19 pandemic, 11 million tons of plastic materials were released into the seawater, harming wildlife and marine life. 

The shocking part is our news channels are not covering these reports because they are busy in politics. Soon, by 2030, billion tons of plastic will be released, and that would be the end of our marine life. 

Final Thoughts

These are the biggest Mexican environmental issues; many others like land use, overfishing, and urban sprawl, which can’t be mentioned in this post. In our opinion, we request all our readers to start planting one tree every month and heal our mother earth from all the environmental issues.
