La Ética del Ser Humano en el Cuidado del Medio Ambiente

Translated title of the contribution: The Ethics Of The Human Being In The Care Of The Environment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The present article is intended to indicate what human beings did in the environment due to their actions, as well as to relate these situations with environmental ethics. The problems we see in our environment are not a matter of chance, they are related to human interventions. These difficulties are expressed in many ways, as in economics, science, even politics. This indicates that humans continue to do harm to the environment without taking into account the consequences of these actions. Also the trees are those that suffer a great environmental impact, the consequences of the felling of trees are the erosion of the soil and destabilization of the phreatic layers, this causes floods and that the sowings dry up, problems with the climate, as well as also reduces the biodiversity and increases the global warming in the planet. In order to safeguard biodiversity, it is also necessary to have an adequate policy for the protection of species that are under threat, applying: agreements, laws, conventions, etc., which help not only in the protection but also in the care of biodiversity. Finally, we can make a relationship between the ethical and the environmental, taking into account that every living being, by the simple fact of being alive, is a bearer of an intimate value: life has a uni¬versal value. Therefore, everything that lives deserves enormous respect, since what lives is equal to what is sacred.
