Humans have taken mother Earth for granted and now we’re paying the price for it.

However, despite the never-ending barrage of haze, global warming, and pollution in mainstream media, a lot of us still have the mindset that it is not of great concern because it does not affect any one of us, and continue with our petty arguments.



The year 2020 has only just begun, and the world has already suffered many natural disasters, tragedies, deaths, regional conflicts and a new virus outbreak. With 6  months to go, what the year 2020 may bring seems daunting to predict in the face of the tsunami of bad news and conflicts.

Lets checkout the 10 Things Humans have done to bring destruction to this planet.


The coronavirus family causes illnesses ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), according to the WHO.
China alerted the WHO to cases of unusual pneumonia in Wuhan on December 31.

COVID-19 is thought to have originated in a seafood market where wildlife was sold illegally.

On February 7, Chinese researchers said the virus could have spread from an infected animal to humans through illegally trafficked pangolins, prized in Asia for food and medicine.

Scientists have pointed to either bats or snakes as possible sources. 

These are results of illegal animal trafficking, that is done world wide. 
Some examples of illegal wildlife trade are well known, such as poaching of elephants for ivory and tigers for their skins and bones. However, countless other species are similarly overexploited, from marine turtles to timber trees. Not all wildlife trade is illegal. Wild plants and animals from tens of thousands of species are caught or harvested from the wild and then sold legitimately as food, pets, ornamental plants, leather, tourist ornaments and medicine. Wildlife trade escalates into a crisis when an increasing proportion is illegal and unsustainable—directly threatening the survival of many species in the wild.

Stamping out wildlife crime is a priority for WWF because it’s the largest direct threat to the future of many of the world’s most threatened species. It is second only to habitat destruction in overall threats against species survival.


Crop-devouring insects are not dangerous when they are roaming alone or in a small isolated group. It becomes a problem when they grow in a huge number. In such scenarios, there is a behavioral change and some transformation into forming swarms.
Also, swarm size this big has the ability to travel up to 150 km in a day. This usually happens when conditions are favorable to them- a desert area and some vegetation nearby.
Some favorable conditions are present for the growth of locusts since the beginning of this year. The large scale breeding is a consequence of unusual rainfall which turned into many hoppers and immature adult groups. As the cyclone Amphan hit the shores, it caused changes in the wind, drawing the swarms of locusts into the central parts of the country, the report said. Therefore, main reasons behind the locusts infestation can be attributed to the unseasonal heavy rains during their breeding season and strong westerly winds.


The wind blows due to uneven heating of Earth. This is useful as it is used as a form of energy. Rain is also caused due to moisture-laden monsoon winds. Rainfall is much awaited by farmers as they mainly depend on it for their crops. But do rain and winds always bring happy situations? No. Thunderstorms and cyclones can be caused due to excessive rain and heavy winds, which bring a lot of destruction of property and life. 

As we know that when water vaporizes, it absorbs heat from the surroundings. Water vapor rises in the atmosphere where it cools down. When water vapor changes back into liquid the heat is released into the atmosphere. This warms the air around it.

The warm air tends to rise and causes a drop in the pressure. The air moves from surrounding high-pressure areas to the central low-pressure area. This cycle is repeated. The chain of events leads to the formation of very low-pressure system surrounded by with very high-speed winds. This weather condition is a cyclone.

Destruction Caused By Cyclones

  • Trees, buildings etc collapse due to strong wind killing many people.
  • Storm surges are Strong winds push water towards a shore. The low-pressure area in the eye lifts water surface in the center which as high as 3 to 12 m. It appears like a water wall moving towards a shore. As a result, water enters the low coastal areas and causes severe loss of life and property.
  • Cyclones may also cause prolonged heavy rains. This may lead to floods causing heavy losses. Water becomes contaminated and people may suffer from various water-borne diseases.
  • It may block the rail and road transport system as well as telephones and other communication systems.


Forest fires always start by one of two ways - naturally caused or human caused. Natural fires are generally started by lightning, with a very small percentage started by spontaneous combustion of dry fuel such as sawdust and leaves. On the other hand, human-caused fires can be due to any number of reasons. Some classifications include smoking, recreation, equipment, and miscellaneous. Human-caused fires constitute the greater percentage of forest fires in our forests, but natural fires constitute the great majority of the total area burned. This is because human-caused fires are usually detected early in their duration, and therefore they are usually contained easily. Natural fires, on the other hand, can burn for hours before being detected by firefighting authorities.

Some animals may be able to escape. Large mammals, such as jaguars, stand the best chance of getting away because they are able to run fast enough to get away from the fire in time.

But many other animals will be killed almost straight away.

Then there are the Amazon's many small and slow mammals, such as the sloth. These animals tend to panic in the presence of fire, and are more likely to suffer direct mortalities.

Birds face similar risks, he adds. While individual birds may be able to fly away and find safety, to do so they will need to abandon their chicks and eggs.

This is bad news for animals that rely on the forest's humid, moist environment. Insectivorous birds who need the ground to be soft and damp in order to be able to stealthily hunt for food. Dry, crunchy leaves on the ground make this impossible for them.


As the planet warms and the ice thaws, scientists warn we could see the re-emergence of ancient pathogens currently unknown to science. These viruses, which have laid dormant and locked away in glaciers and permafrost—permanently frozen soil—for hundreds if not thousands of years, could "wake up," researchers have said.

Earlier this year, scientists analyzing two ice core samples from Guliya ice cap, Tibet, identified several of such viruses. One of the core samples dated back 520 years, while the other held sediments locked away 15,000 years ago. Four of the virus genera—the taxonomic rank between species and family—were already known, but 28 had never been seen before.

The events are connected, caused by the same phenomenon: They occurred in regions covered in permafrost, ground that should stay frozen throughout the year but is now thawing because of global warming.

Permafrost covers about 25 percent of all ice-free land in the Northern Hemisphere. For millennia, much of this ground has been a cemented mass of soil, rock and ice, along with bits of organisms preserved from decay in a deep freeze.
But as temperatures rise, “the ground’s giving way to mush,” says archaeologist Jeff Rasic, chief of resources for Gates of the Arctic National Park in Alaska. Warming ground leads to erosion, sinking and structural damage. Frozen organisms, including pathogens that can infect living hosts, also thaw.

And the worst is yet to come. Organic matter trapped in permafrost — everything from mammoth carcasses to ancient fruit — contains massive stores of carbon, an estimated 1,500 billion tons, or nearly twice the carbon currently in the atmosphere. As the ground warms, the long-frozen material will decay and release the carbon as greenhouse gases.


The sun is said to have gone into a state called the ‘solar minimum’ and is about to enter the deepest period of ‘sunshine recession’ as sunspots are virtually not visibly at all. 
According to NASA's recent revelation, our Sun is filled with many sunspots and magnetic explosions. However, after every 11 years or so, these sunspots fade away. The fading away of these sunspots brings a period of relative calm which is scientifically denoted as Solar Minimum. The Dean Pesnell of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center said that it is a regular sunspot cycle of the Sun.

Solar Minimum effects on Earth are vivid and it will affect Earth's Magnetic field. Know what did NASA Science reveal about Solar Minimum and how it happens.
As per the latest research, scientists have now revealed that the Sun, which appears to be the same every day to us, is in fact, changing over time. The scientists have long known this fact as they use properly-filtered telescopes which helps them understand the difference each time they look at the Sun. These filtered telescopes have been revealing fiery disk often speckled with dark sunspots which are considered to be heavily magnetized. These magnetized sunspots crackle with solar flares which are magnetic explosions that illuminate Earth with flashes of X-rays and extreme ultraviolet radiation.
Apart from this, the solar minimum will change the space weather significantly which will lead to an increase in the number of galactic cosmic rays that reach Earth’s upper atmosphere. These Galactic cosmic rays are high energy particles which are a result of distant supernova explosions and other violent events in the galaxy. According to MD of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, the sun’s magnetic field weakens and provides less shielding from these cosmic rays during a solar minimum which will directly increase the threat to astronauts travelling through space.


Coronavirus outbreak has added a new dimension to 'undeclared World War III
The COVID-19 outbreak has demonstrated the potential of a virus as a weapon of mass destruction. It has added a new dimension to alter the global strategic balance and triggered another chain of events for global strategic dominance, besides unprecedented human sufferings. 

During the First and Second World Wars era, the use of military forces and declaration of war was considered as basic essentiality to call it a World War. War is defined to be a state in which a nation prosecutes its right by force. Similarly as per Collins English Dictionary; World War is a war that involves countries all over the world. During earlier World Wars, the strategic aim was the capture of key territories or surrender of political leadership/will of adversaries. In the current era, the strategic aim revolves around the economic collapse of the adversary.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has put humanity to one of the biggest risks of this century. It exposed the vulnerability of strongest nations, triggered by a possible biological weapon (accidentally or otherwise). While the global powers were busy strengthening other elements of CNP, it exposed the consequences of any possible biological weapon to the world adding a new dimension in ongoing undeclared World War III. Wuhan being the initial epicentre, the trends in early 2020 suggested a sheer drop in CNP of China with a combined effect of US-China trade war, failing BRI and COVID-19.


Beneath Yellowstone Park a monstrous plume of hot rock is causing the earth to heave and tremble. 

No supervolcano has erupted in recorded human history, but geologists have pieced together what an explosion must have been like. First, a plume of heat wells up from deep within the planet and melts rock just beneath the crust of the Earth, creating a vast chamber filled with a pressurized mix of magma, semisolid rock, and dissolved water vapor, carbon dioxide, and other gases. As additional magma accumulates in the chamber over thousands of years, the land above begins to dome upward by inches. Fractures open along the dome's edges, as if burglars were sawing a hole from beneath a wooden floor. When the pressure in the magma chamber is released through the fractures, the dissolved gases suddenly explode in a massive, runaway reaction.

The "hot spot" responsible for the Yellowstone caldera has erupted dozens of times in the past, going back some 18 million years. Since the hot spot is rooted deep in the Earth, and the tectonic plate above it is moving southwest, ghostly calderas from the more ancient explosions are strung out like a series of gigantic beads across southern Idaho and into Oregon and Nevada, the subsequent lava flows forming the eerie moonscapes of the Snake River Plain.

Yellowstone houses a supervolcano, making it thousands of times more powerful than a normal-sized volcano. This supervolcano has had three truly enormous eruptions in its long history. One occurred 2.1 million years ago, one 1.3 million years ago, and one 664,000 years ago.

There is little indication another super-eruption is due anytime soon - and it is even possible Yellowstone might never have an eruption on a similar scale again.


Many of us have this idea that floods (or flooding) is simply, too much water around your house. People think that can be fun. Wrong. Flooding is a lot more than that.

Flooding is extremely dangerous and has the potential to wipe away an entire city, coastline or area, and cause extensive damage to life and property. It also has great erosive power and can be extremely destructive, even if it is a foot high. 
It is a natural event or occurrence where a piece of land (or area) that is usually dry land, suddenly gets submerged under water. Some floods can occur suddenly and recede quickly. Others take days or even months to build and discharge.

When floods happen in an area that people live, the water carries along objects like houses, bridges, cars, furniture and even people. It can wipe away farms, trees and many more heavy items.
Floods occur at irregular intervals and vary in size, duration and the affected area.

It is important to note that water naturally flows from high areas to low lying areas. This means low-lying areas may flood quickly before it begins to get to higher ground.

In this lesson, we shall see more about what causes flooding, the types of flooding, some effects of floods and what we can do before, during and after floods occur.



EARTHQUAKES in the “coming weeks” will trigger the end of the world and Jesus’ return, according to Christian conspiracy theorists.
An earthquake occurs when massive blocks of the earth’s crust suddenly move past each other. These blocks, called tectonic plates, lie on top of the earth’s mantle, a layer that behaves like a very slow-moving liquid over millions of years. That means tectonic plates jostle each other over time. They can also slide on top of each other, a phenomenon called subduction. The places on the planet where one plate meets another are the most prone to earthquakes. The specific surfaces where parcels of earth slip past each other are called faults. As plates move, pressure builds up across their boundaries, while friction holds them in place. When the former overwhelms the latter, the earth shakes as the pent-up energy dissipates.

It’s difficult to figure out when an earthquake will occur, since the forces that cause them happen slowly over a vast area but are disbursed rapidly over a narrow region. What’s amazing is that forces built up across continents over millions of years can hammer cities in minutes. 

Climate change could have a tiny effect on earthquakes
In general, scientists haven’t measured any effect on earthquakes from climate change. But they’re not ruling out the possibility.

As average temperatures rise, massive ice sheets are melting, shifting billions of tons of water from exposed land into the ocean and allowing land masses to rebound. That global rebalancing could have seismic consequences, but signals haven’t emerged yet.

It is about time that we too should be a little more concerned about what’s happening around us. Putting things into perspective, the constant riff and struggle that we see in our country today, will not mean anything should we too become the victims of natural disasters.

Tick tick tick, the doomsday clock is ticking.
