We face a variety of community issues, like environmental problems ,that affects the world we live in. As globalization continues, local problems becomes international issues too. With the kind of attention the environment and preserving it has been getting lately, we would think that we have traversed a long road in our fight to maximize our resources and preserve the beautiful diversity of our nature. From marine ecosystem preservation, mammal extinction, rainforest destruction, or polar ice caps loss are some of the very serious environmental issues, and we should start to look at them and treat them that way.
Like such, every community problem has causes, numerous effects, but most importantly, a solution!
