What is the Environment? The environment is something you are  very familiar with. It's everything around  us ! It actually affects our ability to live on  the earth - from the air we breathe, the  water that covers most of the earth's  surface, the plants and animals around  us to much much more.   In the past we have not really given much  thought to what is around us and what  effect it may have on us if it were  removed or polluted. However, in recent  years, scientists have been carefully  examining the ways that people affect the  environment and people are beginning to  realise that we need to take extra care of  our 'environment'. They have found that we are causing air pollution, deforestation, acid  rain, and other problems that are dangerous both to the earth and to  ourselves. These days, when you hear people talk about "the  environment", they are often referring to the overall condition of our  planet, or how healthy it is.   We must do our best to look after the planet to avoid any further  damage !
