If we aren’t concerned about the O-zone layer, it’s the worry over fresh water, air quality, over-population, sustainable forestry, or civil unrest and natural disasters. The latest issue is floating debris and space pollution. Apparently there are 20,000 objects traveling at 17,000 miles an hour in different directions just above the earth’s atmosphere.
