Problems related to Indiscriminate use of resources

The over use of resources has caused several major problems:

  1. Depletion of Resources: Resources are finishing just to complete the need of greedy people.
  2. Accumulation of Resources: Resources are left in few hands only, divided society into 2 parts- Rich and Poor.
  3. Indiscriminate exploitation of Resources: Resources are wasted which has led to global warming, ozone layer depletion, pollution, and land degradation.

Major Problems due to indiscriminate use of resources can be learned with the code “AID” which means help:

A – Accumulation of Resources

I – Indiscriminate use of resources

D- Depletion of resources
