Global natural disasters - from the past to the future
Global-scale cataclysms had an impact on the history of the Earth and mankind more than once. They have caused climate change and led to death of entire civilizations. Many clairvoyants have foretold of impending global cataclysms - Edgar Cayce, Vanga, Nostradamus, etc.
British writer G. Hancock cites this passage from the Hopi Indians myth in his book “Fingerprints of the Gods”: “The first world was destroyed as a punishment for human misdemeanors by an all-consuming fire that came from above and below. The second world ended when the terrestrial globe toppled from its axis and everything was covered with ice. The third world ended in a universal flood. The present world is the fourth. Its fate will depend on whether or not its inhabitants behave in accordance with the Creator’s plans.”
Today scientists have already predicted a global catastrophe on Earth. There are plenty of movies about the worst natural disasters happened to our planet as well as a number of scientific reports. We see numerous news on TV and online about various natural disasters occurring in the world.
There is a rapid increase of a dynamic pattern of cataclysms. In addition to natural disasters, the situation is also aggravated by ecological factors.
Global ecological problems are the result of the human activity. Technology development and its ineffective use lead to dire consequences. Everyone remembers the catastrophe at the Chernobyl Atomic Electric Power Station or the accident of 2011 at APS Fukushima-1 in Japan.
The fact that global climate change has already begun is obvious. The current events are the proof of it. Let’s refresh in our memory the most striking natural cataclysms in the last 15 years.
A 6.3 magnitude earthquake wiped out the Iranian city of Bam, considered to be the most ancient monument to Persian cultural heritage. According to various reports, it claimed lives of 30 to 70,000 people.
Tsunami in the Indian Ocean killed 230,000 people. It was the most deadly natural disaster on our planet. It spanned Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Maldives, Somalia, Myanmar and Malaysia. Huge waves over 15 meters high caused horrible devastation.
In Europe an unthinkable heat killed 35,000 people.
The largest hurricane in the entire history of USA “Katrina” took 1.8 thousand lives. New Orleans as well as the states of Georgia, Mississippi, Florida and Alabama were seriously damaged.
Earthquake in Pakistan took the lives of 79,000 people. It was the most horrendous earthquake in Asia in the last hundred years. Territories of India and Pakistan were damaged and entire villages were destroyed.
“Nargis” cyclone in Myanmar led to 138,000 deaths. The tropical cyclone also passed through Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Thailand. Many residential areas were wiped off the face of the Earth.
Earthquake in China killed 70,000 people. More than half a million houses were destroyed.
Hurricane “Agatha” killed 1.6 thousand people. The impact of hurricane was worsened by a volcanic explosion. The south regions of Mexico, Salvador and Honduras were badly hit.
A terrible earthquake descended on Haiti. It became the most devastating in the last 200 years. 223,000 people were killed by the disaster. The capital town Port-au-Prince was left in tatters. Just in 2010, 260,000 people died in different catastrophes.
In Japan, there was the most massive earthquake in history. Its magnitude was 9 degrees on the Richter scale. The force of nature took lives of 15,000 people. Which is not much compared to the previous numbers thanks to preparedness of the government and people of Japan. Anyway each human life is extremely valuable!
This time will stay in people’s minds for a long time due to its cataclysms. 32.4 million people were left without a roof over their heads. The hurricanes visited the USA territory most frequently. Let’s recall “Sandy” and the destruction it caused.
Super-typhoon “Haiyan” pounced on Philippines and resulted in approximately 6,000 deaths.
This time has also been difficult for a large number of people in different corners of the World. There was a lot of extreme weather occurrences: devastating wildfires, earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, landslides, heavy rain storms, droughts, heat waves and shocking colds in the uncommon locations. Also this year was the hottest and many places experienced drought. As a result of anomalous heat, about 5,000 people died. There was also an earthquake in Nepal, which had taken lives of 9,000 people.
Among the other climatic events, the series of earthquakes in Italy were especially disturbing. The scientists’ opinion is that this was an unusual phenomenon since such activity hadn’t been observed before.
A little more about Italy...
We should pay attention and take a better look at the situation in this country. Taking into account the experience of the past, a huge amount of people could suffer again as a result of indifference of others and a lack of timely information..
In the broadcast “It is Coming”, academician and professor Igor Danilov brought up an extremely important info about the climatic catastrophe that is due to happen on the Apennine Peninsula. We can already observe changing climate in this region, abnormal snowfalls and unexplainable deaths of birds.
Even facile analysis of the climate situation in Italy reflects the plain truth that destructive processes have already begun and are gaining momentum.
Important! NASA has issued an alarming statement on their official website. Scientists predicted that on February 1st 2019, a global catastrophe is supposed to take place. Astronomers say a huge asteroid 2002 NT7 will crash into the Earth at 11:47 am on that day. Its diameter is about 2 km. Scientists are concerned as a collision of such a great celestial body with the surface is equivalent to an explosion of 30 million nuclear bombs and can destroy the entire continent. Consequences of the catastrophe may create climate conditions similar to a nuclear winter.
However, the goal of this article is not to frighten people but to make them realise what lessons could be learned in this situation. What must we focus on? What must we understand while learning about the global catastrophes?
Let’s take Haiti as an example to answer these questions.
In 2010, a large scale earthquake occured on the West Indian island of Hispaniola, which is home to the countries of Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
More than 220,000 people have died then. But the fact is that the vast majority of them were killed not by the earthquake but by the living conditions that were created afterwards.
There were such occurrences as damaged infrastructure, the water scarcity, lack of medicine and food. It is easy to imagine how difficult and despairing it was for those people to see others dying right before their eyes. They felt depressed and dejected. The situation was also exacerbated by the fact that humanitarian aid did not come right away. For about two weeks, people were trapped under the ruins, often without any access to food, water or even a human voice. Thus, a very difficult psychological situation had developed. People of the West Indian were unable to help each other in an hour of need, but have shown a competitive survival behaviour. Multiple marauding gangs were formed who were ready to use violence over a slice of bread.
But it could have been different.
What can help people cope with such a disaster? The answer is quite plain and it lies inside each person. Kindness can significantly help people survive in difficult situations, such as a natural disaster or a climate catastrophe. It doesn’t matter what nationality, religion or social status you belong to. What is important - is that simple truth that we are all human and we all have a Soul. Even when meeting each other for the first time, we realize how valuable Life of each human is, how delicate it is, how many good things we can do together. It is enough for one person to lend a helping hand to those in need - to inspire a chain of good deeds.
The impending climate catastrophe may put any one in a position of a climate refugee and leave us without work or any means of livelihood.
Only by uniting can we overcome all challenges and survive in the coming global catastrophes. By showing care and kindness of heart, one can share his or her house with neighbor families, share some food and clothes with them to help them survive. This is why it’s so important to make a priority of such qualities as humaneness, friendship, goodness and willingness to help other people. Can anything be more important than saving even one human life?
We shouldn’t be afraid of catastrophes. Each crisis gives us the impetus to become spiritually stronger. We must help others and show the example of a person worthy of being called a Human Being.
After all, almost each of us had a situation in our lives when mutual aid and simple kindness accomplished a lot. These simple qualities, which are within the Soul of each human being, are able to unite people and help them overcome any difficulties.
The “AllatRa” International Public Movement was created for this very purpose. Today, it unites hundreds of thousands of people from more than 190 countries of the world.
The activity of the Movement participants is directed at building friendship and unity of people from various countries and different religions through social projects, mutual aid and consolidation of effort in creative work. Only together we can do a great deal of good and make it through any of life’s hardships.
