There are several environmental issues in North Korea. One of the biggest issues is deforestation. Trees are cut down in used for firewood, and firewood fuels many homes. Natural disasters like droughts, floods, and forest fires have also killed many trees. This deforestation has led to soil erosion. This makes it harder to grow food.
While we have technology in North Korea, what we can see and do with it is limited. Radios and TVs can only access government-approved channels. 75% of people have cell phones, and I am one of those. I can only call people who also live in North Korea. The government can see what we look up on the internet, so we have to be very careful.
Most people in North Korea are atheists. This could be because we worship our leader, and treat him as a god. While the constitution states that there is freedom of religion in North Korea, this isn't the case. The government discriminated against those who are religious, especially Christians. In the country, there are holidays to celebrate the birthdays of previous leaders. There are other holidays to celebrate our countries achievements.
