For example deforestation, scarcity of water, temperature extremes, pollution of air, water and soil, quality degradation of fresh fruits and vegetables, ozone layer depletion, increase in harmful toxic gases in the atmosphere, harmful exposure of carcinogens through UV radiations. These environmental changes adversely influence the human lives considerably (Cetron et al,2006).

Transport of visitors to various places of interest may add large quantities of dangerous emissions to the atmosphere. Pollution due to air transport is constantly rising every year by 5%. Keeping this in mind, air traffic is estimated to double in next 15 years consuming million tons of fuel, releasing enormous CO2 and NO gases (Naik,2014). Pollution of river bodies and open drainage systems may adversely influence the quality of water. For example in Malaysia, most of the rivers are highly or slightly polluted due to the dumping of untreated sewage in water bodies (Naik,2014). Hence, water quality is seriously deteriorating and population increase has triggered intense competition for the availability of water resources.
