Managers of Environment: A Crucial Part in the Responsibility of All Living Things
The environment is a non-time-frame entity existing parallel to time. It exists in an infinite dimension independent of time. It cannot be considered to be in existence from timeless time or the cosmos itself. Rather, the environment is a temporal framework, existing only in the present moment and independent of subsequent timescales.
The natural environment encompasses all non-living and living things existing naturally, which means outside of human life. The word environment is often used as a collective term encompassing all of the different living and non living things existing in and on the Earth and in space. In many scientific disciplines the environment is studied using the concepts of biochemistry, physiology, ecology, hydrology, forestry, psychology, etc. In essence the environment is a description of a set of interacting organisms, their relationships and the physical and biological parts of an ecosystem. The word ecosystem is frequently used to describe any type of living or non-living things existing in the vicinity of a community or ecosystem.
The atmosphere is the primary mode of communication between living organisms and the Earth. In this respect, the earth as a whole is an atmosphere, comprising gases, clouds, ultra-violet radiation, solar radiation etc. In terms of communication with the atmosphere refers to the quality of the atmospheric signal, which allows us to send and receive information. The environment also refers to the quality of the atmospheric ‘silent’ web, which permits people and other forms of life to communicate without being heard by others.
The earth possesses a limited capacity for sustaining life. This has been confirmed by recent scientific research based on paleontology, archeology, genetics, astronomy, ecology, immunology etc. The earth’s environment was once highly dynamic and diverse but has experienced a steep decline in its biological diversity within the past half century. This decline is mostly associated with the impact of man-made, inorganic compounds such as carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane, pesticides, etc. Rapid urbanization, habitat loss, farming, logging and other man made environmental factors are a few other factors that have devastated the earth’s natural environments.
Any living in an environment that is rich in oxygen and carbon dioxide. The atmosphere absorbs and gives off oxygen in the course of respiration and breathing; the upper atmosphere holds more of the greenhouse gases, while the lower atmosphere is responsible for collecting carbon dioxide and releasing it into the atmosphere. Both the earth’s atmosphere and earth’s waters are vital for the existence of all creatures that live on it. Man’s influence on the environment can be traced in the form of the variety of flora and fauna that exist today, as well as the spectacular changes that have taken place in their composition over time.
Managers of natural environments have a huge responsibility in conserving the richness of our flora and fauna. They play a major role in maintaining the quality of the air we breathe, in preserving the earths’ surface and in helping to enhance and maintain the productivity of the land. A healthy natural environment is vital for the continued existence of human communities and their way of life. The kind of lifestyle a person leads could have a direct impact on the nature of the environment he lives in. Managers of managed environments can thus ensure that the people who inhabit their areas of responsibility to live as comfortably as possible.
