Today, caring for the Environment is one of the most important things for human beings because preserving it is equal to preserving human life. Environmental challenges became important in the 1980s. generation, conversion, transmission and energy consumption all have an impact on the environment. The relationship between sustainable development and the utilization of resources especially energy is one of the most important issues in human societies and the realization of sustainable development depends on the use of energy resources. Environmental issues have a growing scope and include pollutant emissions and ecosystem degradation and degradation factors at the regional and global scales. The environment is a seat of physical, chemical, biological, social, economic factors that relate to the individual community and population in various ways. The difference between the environment and nature the definition of nature includes a set of natural, biological and non-biological factors that are considered exclusively while the term environmental is described in term of interactions between humans and nature and from its perspective.
