An air- raising affair

The Apocalypse is coming...
We are all aware about the drastic changes in climate over the years. And to top it up, frequent catastrophes like Tsunami, Earthquakes etc. etc.
These are so called natural catastrophes, but if one analyses in depth, it will be clear that mankind is responsible to a huge extent for these mishaps.
Movements of the earth's surface are caused due to internal pressures. Where do these pressures come from? Thousands of constructions take place every day in various parts of the world. If one city is destructed due to an earthquake, hundreds of new buildings mushroom there in no time.
Earth has been exploited since ages. Be it for mining, extraction of resources, building structures or tapping ground water. We do so not only to survive but to lead a comfortable life as well. But will our lives remain comfortable for long if this mass destruction continues.
Trees, which play a major role in keeping the surface intact, might soon become a part of History.
The earth's movements not only affects its inhabitants but also the climate. I am neither a scientist nor a researcher, but for me the simple fact that it is becoming hotter each year is enough evidence to understand the consequences we will face shortly.
Climatic changes have begun long back in a negative way. If we don't take immediate action, it will definitely be too late to repair the damages. All this can be stopped if and only if each and every man understands the threat he is facing and steps forward to prevent the devastating after effects.
Hoping that governments and organisations are there for our safety is an understatement. We have to stop this. Alternatives are many but they seem to involve a lot of hard work. Governments and organisations can spend enormous amounts on developing sattelite images, probing other planets or even conducting conferences to discuss the global threats, but are these fruitful?
We have no time and time is of the essence.
Let's restructure the earth before we expedite doomsday and suffer through global warming, earthquakes, floods, storms, landslides
Let's not say goodbye, not now!Barry's Response
