The global environment has been significantly affected by humans due to the increase in population. The atmospheric carbon dioxide has increased by a whopping 25%. The high demand of natural resources by humans has degraded our global environment. Land is most often used based on social and economic forces. Another factor is whether the land is fertile or not. Learning people’s response to changes in the environment lead to predictions about human adaptability to environmental change on a much bigger scale. Social, political, and economic perspectives determine how quickly a person will be able to adapt.
