We all have studied in our primary school that flood, earthquake, tsunami, volcano eruption, wildfire, drought etc. are natural disasters.
But in today’ time are these really just a natural disaster????? No in today’s time these have become MAN MADE DISASTERS ….yes, these disasters are happening in today’s time because of human’s mistakes ….just because human interrupts in process of NATURE….
Let’s talk about every topic one by one :
- FLOOD – yes flood. As it is rainy season, we can clearly see in our surroundings that so many cities either it is metropolitan or not have filled by water… every street, every crossing is just totally filled up by water…why????…..does this rain take place for the first time in our life so that we couldn’t make any arrangements???……did this rain not occur in the old time?? ..…it occurred….. But in old time they had better arrangements than us ….
What we have done guys the first problem is population….since there are so many people and everyone will live in a home so what we did??? Just cut the trees and forests and made very big big buildings and had not made any drainage system for the water…
There is just a small amount of rain in any city and just look at it situation it become water water everywhere..
And now when the water enters in our home then we blame GOD for all this…Here is no fault of GOD…here is the fault of us THE HUMANS….
There is also another thing to be noticed that we have seen so many times that any animals like leopard, snakes usually come into our city or sometimes even in our streets … another example, we have seen that animals like rhino and elephants are walking on road why???….. Don’t they have their home (forests)??…. The answer is NO…We have occupied their home we have finished the forests and build our home …we have divested their home so where they will go that’s why they just come to cities….. Here is no fault of animals it was their home and we have divest it form them so fault is of us THE HUMANS….
- EARTHQUAKE- There was a time when earth quake was a natural disaster but now it has also become man made disaster.
Some scientists have traced the increase in earthquakes, especially in areas not known for the presence of fault lines or past seismic activity, to human actions. That’s right. We humans are causing earthquakes more frequently than ever before. scientists have identified a variety of large-scale human activities that can trigger earthquakes.
Although natural earthquakes usually occur along fault lines, While many human-induced earthquakes are mild and don’t cause much damage, some of them can be serious and dangerous. In fact, scientists believe human activity has caused earthquakes with magnitudes as high as 7.9 on the Richter scale.
Scientists believe most human-induced earthquakes are the result of mining. As companies drill deeper and deeper below Earth’s surface to extract natural resources, holes left behind can cause instability that leads to collapses that trigger earthquakes.
Building large dams can also cause earthquakes. For example, approximately 80,000 people died in China in 2008 as a result of a 7.9-magnitude earthquake triggered by 320 million tons of water that had been collected in the Zipingpu Reservoir after a large dam was built over a known fault line.
Another human activity triggering earthquakes is hydraulic fracturing (known as “fracking”) for oil and gas, including the high pressure wastewater disposal that usually accompanies fracking. In this process, water, sand, and chemicals are pumped underground under high pressure to fracture rocks to release natural resources.
As those resources, such as oil and natural gas, make their way to the surface, so do the water and chemicals that were injected to begin the process. This wastewater is collected and often injected deep underground again to dispose of it. Both the fracking process and wastewater disposal have been shown to trigger earthquakes.
These aren’t the only human activities that can trigger earthquakes, though. Scientists point out that earthquakes can also be triggered by other human activities, such as construction of skyscrapers and nuclear explosions.
- DROUGHT- Mr. Rajendra Singh, Chairman, Tarun Bharat Sanghsaw the current drought as, “A man made disaster.” He called for, “A community driven decentralized water policy as the only solution. Before offering solutions we first need to listen to the knowledge of the farmers who have dealt with drought.”
Mr. Richard Mahapatra, managing editor, of Down to Earth magazine claimed “There is no connection between monsoon and drought, the dire situation has been caused mismanagement of water.”
- FOREST FIRE- The causes of forest fire have been increasing rapidly. The problem has been accentuated by the growing human and cattle population. People enter forests ever more frequently to graze cattle, collect fuel wood, timber and other minor forest produce. It has been estimated that 90% of forest fires in India are man-made
Fire is caused when a source of fire like naked flame, cigarette or bidi, electric spark or any source of ignition comes into contact with inflammable material.
Recent amazon rain forest’s fire , Australia ‘s forest fire there are so much examples of this…
So , we have seen that humans are continuously interrupting in nature but remember when nature will determined to learn us a lesson that day…that day no one will be able to ask any question no one will be able to say a single world because when nature got angry then there is no one on this earth who can save us…
THIS IS JUST A SIMPLE THING NATURE IS JUST LIKE OUR MOTHER CARE IT…RESPECT IT…THIS IS NATURE WHO PROVIDES US THE LAND ON WHICH WE CAN LIVE EASILY AND WHAT WE ARE GIVING IT IN RETURN… POLLUTED SOIL????….IT PROVIDE US WATER AND WHAT WE ARE GIVING IT IN RETURN… POLLUTED WATER???…..IT PROVIDES US GREENERY AND WHAT WE ARE GIVING IT IN RETURN…. DROUGHT??…WE ARE CUTTING TRESS????….
REMEMBER THIS EARTH IS THE HOME OF NATURE ….NATURE IS THE OWNER OF EARTH AND WE ALL ARE JUST GUEST…..TODAY WE ARE HERE …TOMORROW WE WILL NOT…. BUT THE NATURE WILL…
AS I SAID ABOVE WE ARE JUST GUEST WE SHOULD LEARN TO LIVE PEACEFULLY WITHOUT SPOILING THE NATURE’S HOME…..BECAUSE IF WE DO SOMETHING WRONG THEN NATURE WILL GET OUT US…….
