The world is full of environmental problems.
Rainforests particularly are under threat and wildlife.
Within the Amazon Rainforest, the Kayapo tribe live. They live by hunting, fishing and gathering food from the forest. A few crops are grown but not many. It is evidently shown that the Kayapo respect the environment. The body paint they use is made from plants, clean and orderly villagers have reduced waste and pollution and spare food is trade to reduce waste.
Comparing this type of lifestyle to the Western Culture is difficult; we drive around places which causes pollution, we cut down trees and we do not recycle as well as we should. These are only a few of the reasons we have strong environmental issues.
Campaigns such as Green Peace try to protect the environment and the damage that surrounds it. Some of the things Green Peace has done is end nuclear power generation, reduce the burning of fossil fuels and prevent genetically modified crops from being grown.
Alternative Energy sources - these are things which are renewed naturally such as solar energy and wind energy.
Non Alternative energy sources - these are things like coal and oil.
Although internationally we try to help the environment; it is shown in places like the Chinese capital that it is extremely busy and the country itself is in need of cars which highly reduces pollution. Sometimes issues such as this are very hard to resolve.
