Look around in a park or garden; some plants will be growing, others will be dying and or beginning to decay or rot. The same process happens to animals, they are born, they grow, and they begin to rot and die. The process is just not always easy to see. What must you know is that we as humans are a part of the animal kingdom, or do you not believe this to be so?
Nature and life are a part of the natural cycle everything that lives eventually dies. Some animals and plants die from age and disease. Others animals and nature eat each other and are eaten by other animals and nature has an army of helpers to clean up the remains. The lives of many living things depend on upon the death of others. Imagine if animals and plants did not die. There would not be enough space or food for new animals to grow.
The death of plants and animals makes it possible for new lives to thrive. Nature has been doing what she does for zillions of years recycling. The remains of animals and plants rot and decay is a process called decomposition. Natural waste comes from anything that was once alive. Organic matter is the term given to this occurrence.
When the waste breaks up, it releases chemicals into the environment. These compounds provide energy and food, called nutrients for other plants and animals. Through decomposition, nature is constantly recycling natural waste such as infected leaves. When you next time walk up to a pile of damp leaves, remember it is nature at work.
Let’s turn this around a bit and move it more towards our human beings because to start we all have to remember this FACT. Humanity cannot live without nature, but nature can live without understanding. It is not that nature intends to punish humanity, it is just that humanity’s actions create natural effects. It is humanity’s decision whether that balance that we need will include the human race.
Nature is resilient, but even it cannot be continually poised in the way it is being poisoned today by the action of people. If we fail to heed the warnings the fear is that the destructive effects that we see will escalate. Unless we learn from our lessons and find a way to honor and respect the very planet that has given us life, this world will take it away from us. In response to this, you might say how can humanity affect weather patterns and encourage natural disasters? Many say that’s easy it is called “global dimming.”
Since the industrial revolution, we’ve thrown more particulate matter into the atmosphere than the largest volcanoes in history. The effect is global dimming. Less light is reaching the surface of the planet today than at any time since the last great volcanic blowout. Oceans are affective by sea water temperature, which alters water currents, which alters water evaporation, which changes weather patterns (i.e. natural disasters)?
We have done this to ourselves, and our behavior is simply not sustainable. Either we learn how to respect nature, or we’ll be wiped out, and quality will make the adjustments for us. When you give it deep thought, you can see that without the impact of humanity, the planet would heal itself in a mere 5,000 years, most likely. What’s beyond interesting is that’s the blink of an eye in the lifetime of our planet.
How do you take this all into your sphere of understanding? Remember Earth can shrug off humanity without breaking a sweat. We all have our role in this, so your responsibility is to get in sync with nature and give her the praise she deserves respect.
Since the industrial revolution, we’ve thrown more particulate matter into the atmosphere than the largest volcanoes in history. The effect? Global dimming. Less light is reaching the surface of the planet today than at any time since the last great volcanic blowout. That, in turn, affects ocean water temperature, which alters water currents, which alters water evaporation, which changes weather patterns, which leads to unnatural variation in those weather patterns (i.e. natural disasters).
