    All issues are related to each other.


    Environmental issues like Biodiversity and genetic modification related to the alterations in the genetic makeup of species richness on earth. Biodiversity today faces a challenging situation where the loss of habitats and modification of the environment takes place that leads the species to adapt fast to the next environment. Either by natural selection or genetic drift. Deforestation is the complete removal or clearance of forest land by man for construction or development purposes, which leads to the development of desertic conditions over the natural landscape as trees hold the soil by roots from getting blown away. Global warming and ozone layer depletion, both causes of man-made anthropogenic wastes and harmful gases that warm and destroy the upper atmosphere and raise the temperature of the world's oceans and water levels.
