How does the environment protect itself?

    There are tons of self regulating mechanisms (I wish I had time to write a research paper on this topic):

    “Overpopulation in wild animals is a scenario in which the population of a wild species exceeds the carrying capacity of its ecological niche. Overpopulation is not a function of the number or density of the individuals, but rather the number of individuals compared to the resources they need to survive.” wikipedia—– what this means is that if any species living on the land (say humans for example) destroys the land, then the species will die off (because the food and resource supplies will dwindle), and then the environment will begin to restore itself.

    Plant reproduction happens automatically, so the natural environment as far as flora goes always generates itself (as long as the proper conditions exist).

    The water cycle, nitrogen cycle, and carbon cycle have been cleaning and protecting the stability of earth’s ecosystems for ages immemorial.

    The earth’s magnetic field and the ozone layer also protect the living organisms which are a part of the environment by repelling harmful rays of energy from the sun (ultraviolet and other forms of radiation).

    The fact that earth is a livable environment, capable of supporting life, is truly astonishing and in all honest accounts, the only one we humans will ever know.

    So WE OUGHT TO DO THE MOST PROTECTING OF THE ENVIRONMENT! BECAUSE WE CAN MAKE CHOICES WHICH EFFECT THE EARTH IN EITHER A GOOD OR A BAD WAY! WE CAN”T JUST LEAVE IT UP TO THE ENVIRONMENT THIS TIME AROUND — BECAUSE WE CAUSED THE PROBLEMS AND DID ALL THE DAMAGES — SO WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO ACTIVELY SEEK SOLUTIONS TO THE ISSUES WE HAVE CREATED…

    because the environment works very passively and over long time periods — we have to act now if we are going to make enough of a difference that it will matter enough to undo all the damage we have already done! WEVE GOT A LOT OF WORK TO DO! PROTECT IT TODAY BY PLANTING A TREE OR CLEANING A HABITAT! OR AT LEAST NOT POLLUTING  OR LITTERING YOURSELF!
