Burning of fossil fuels gives out all kinds of gases in the
atmosphere causing air pollution and green house effect. Building of
dams causes large areas to submerge. Various industries release various
pollutants into the air, water and soil. Thus, the main damage caused to
the environment of use of natural resources is environment pollution.
Thus, on the one hand our natural resources are getting depleted and on
the other hand, we are polluting the earth's environment which can
regenerate those natural resources to some extent. It can be said that
this is a double blow that we are inflicting on ourselves.
