Natural resources are things we depend in our everyday lives. Food, water, and clean air are three natural resources that we depend on constantly. We have a responsibility towards these resources and that’s to not deplete them. We have to stand up and take responsibility and save the resource before they are all gone.

That then causes fertilizer that’s in soil to dissolve and then go into streams which pollutes the water. When farmers use irrigation to water these large areas of land it also brings the salt up from lower levels; which is also a form of pollution. When trees are removed it also has a huge impact on our water cycle. Trees release water vapor which in return produce humidity. The water vapor evaporates into the earth’s atmosphere where it comes together before coming back to earth as rain, sleet, or snow. If trees are cut down it can affect the weather and cause less rain to be produced. That causes more issues because the less rain that’s produced the drier the land becomes.

That means water is a very important factor for the human species as well as animals to survive. Due to the need for water being so high it’s important that it’s not polluted. Water pollution causes many issues for our natural resources such as grass, trees, and plants.
