  1. Carbon emissions. It’s depealting our ozone which lets in heat rays, melting the polar ice caps. There will be flooding and the heat will create drought.

  2. I think the most pressing issue would be co2 emmissions. This could cause the ozone layer to break down. The suns rays then would kill us with uv rays and the co2 buildup would leave no oxygen.

  3. Overpopulation is the biggest concern. If we have more people that means less land for farming and wildlife. We will extract and use all of earths resources and the food supply won’t be sufficient. Cities will be crowded to the max.

  4. I think carbon emissions is one of the most pressing environmental issues because the carbon dioxide is damaging the ozone layer and letting harmful rays from the sun melt the polar ice caps.

  5. Wildlife conservation because too many animals are becoming extinct. There are many factors that contribute to this cause, and if we help to reduce them we should see a change in wildlife conservation.

  6. I think the most pressing issue is global warming because it has a bad affect on all environments.

  7. I think that it would probably be carbon emissions, because they cause layers to be broken down.

  8. Habitat loss. As habitats are destroyed we lose vital resources humans need and animals become endangered or extinct.

  9. I think that the most pressing environmental issue facing the world today is biodiversity. The threat of biodiversity makes a perfect ecosystem even harder to obtain. Biodiversity allows an environment to be very. Efficient because each species has a very important role that they play.

    • I agree totally that biodiversity is a huge issue. Without grizzly bears for example, we would have too many fish that would over populate. In effect, the plants that the fish eat may disappear as well.

  10. Global warming would have to be the biggest problem facing us today. But at a close second would be over population. Are ozone is being destroyed which is bad

  11. The most pressing environmental issue today is deforestation in my opinion. This causes CO2 emission to go up. It also causes soil to be washed away when there is not enough trees to use the water for their roots.

  12. Global warming cause it affects us the animals,and the environment

  13. I honk the most pressing issue in today would be the amount of pollution that’s humans are creating. We are constantly polluting the earths surface with plastics, wastes and harmful gases such as CO2.

  14. I think the most pressing environmental issue facing the world today would be global warming. Global warming is an increasing issue that does not seem to be getting any better.

  15. I think the most pressing issue today is pollution due to the emissions from factories and cars. This is such a pressing matter especially in the developing countries like China and Japan.

  16. On top of global warming deforestation is really bad. Cause of the gases and taking animals homes
