Just in the past couple of days, we listened to the news of Australia facing a massive bushfire. Though, it had been quite long since the temperature and environment was much severe there. Fire rain and the weather rigidity was making the lives of Australians pretty much difficult. Other than Australia, we also see disastrous weather conditions in almost every other part of the world. This Australian Bushfire and the other global environmental hazards are a threat to mankind. And we need to work on that before it’s too late.
Situation in Australia
On January 5, 2020 the bushfire in Australia reached its worst. It was not coming under control, regardless of all the struggles and labour the firefighters and volunteers were putting in. That bushfire did damage beyond control and beyond imagination. The wild life suffered the most. Over 500 million animals died of the fire, while many are rescued injured and bruised. Some species of animals even wiped out entirely in the fire.
The smoke was surrounding almost the whole country. People found it hard to even breath. The hazardous smoke was not letting people to openly enhale. Both the human and wild life was at stake and many lost their lives.
But finally today, a pleasant news came up about rain in Australia. After a long and anticipated wait, it finally rained there. Also, some pictures got viral on Internet yesterday, capturing some Muslims who gathered to pray Namaz e Istisqa (prayer for rain) in Australia. So, it’s a miracle from God that after such a huge fire, the rain finally poured onto them.
What heppend to UN Climate Action Summit?
Just four months back in September 2019, UN Climate Action Summit was held. We witnessed many resolutions were passed to control the climate damage, but as usual no action has been taken yet. Where are all those people now? What happened to all the resolutions? No tad bit difference can be seen anywhere in the whole world. But, the conditions are getting worse in every part of the world.
Environmental hazards in other parts of the world
It’s not only Australia which is facing massive climate issues. Greenland is experiencing 4 times rapid ice melting. In Haiti, hurricanes are getting wetter and more intense due to climate change. Yemen and UAE are facing extreme risk of water stress and they need a lot of energy for cooling. Pakistan, India, Philippines, Canada, Qatar, Belgium, Denmark, USA and every other country in the world is facing massive climate crisis.
This Australian bushfire and all the other global environmental hazards are a threat to the life on this planet. It’s high time now that we take a step forward and do our best to to stop this environment contamination. We all need to take part in this, on individual and on group level both. Because that is the only way by which we can reduce these climate threats or the consequences will be much grotesque.
