Global environmental change is an old phenomenon running simultaneously with the origin of the Earth. Since variations on this planet is an outcome of continuous and still going evolutionary changes, incorporating various mysterious biological, physical as well as a chemical phenomenon. The outcome and the additive effect of these changes are steady and bring about the change in the environment on the daily basis. The conditions which as a sum are responsible for this outcome of environmental change are particularly very difficult to ascertain and observe under normal laboratory conditions. Any considered factor which brings about the environmental change work entirely different under normal conditions as there are chances of its getting associated with various other environmental factors simultaneously. At present, the researches carried out throughout the globe have pointed out anthropogenic activities to be a major contributor in bringing about environmental degradation and thus change. Some of these human activities include industrialization, urbanization, stratospheric ozone depletion, deforestation, loss of biodiversity, acidification, pollution, and desertification, etc. Even though this global environmental degradation is an outcome of activities initiated and looked upon by only a few human masses, still the outcome effects are sometimes deleterious instantly or perhaps sub-chronic also to entirely all the masses surviving on this planet including the plants and other animals. To save life on this planet, it is extremely urgent and important that the anthropogenic factors affecting the environment adversely be checked and restricted at the global level. This work provides an insight into various efforts brought about to check the environmental degradation through anthropogenic activities and what is left to be done preliminary.
