A variety of solutions for environmental problems exist including recycling, reduction of carbon emissions from fossil fuels, finding alternative energy solutions and the conservation of marine life. These solutions and others are some ways balance can be brought to the environment and nurture the interdependence of life on Earth.

Environmental problems typically arise from overuse, misuse or disregard for valuable resources in the environment. Resources can vary from simple minerals and gases to the animal and plant life that exist in nature. Drastic impacts on these resources lead to imbalances and result in a domino effect. One example of this is the highly debated topic of global warming.
