The human race, a component of nature, has begun to experience the opposite effect as a reaction to the domination of nature. The modern society, which is endangering the dangers of global warming and climate change, has just begun to express its concern for nature. This is why the modern concept of ecology is gaining more attention. The concept of ecology is now a matter of debate, rather than a defence of nature, of human self-defence. It is only by understanding nature and living on it that the human race can establish its presence in this global sphere. "Man is a social animal. He responds directly to the environment through his actions and changes not only his way of life but also the way of life of all living things” In his book Theory of cultural change 1955 by Julian Stewart.
