For decades now, scientists and environmentalists have been warning us against abuse of mother nature, and it now seems that she has decided to fight back.
In 2020, we experienced the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic which has been largely blamed on the consumption of unnatural foods in the Eastern part of the world.
In 2021, it seems mother Nature is punishing us through the weather.
The cold season in 2021 started way back in July, taking a few days break towards the end of August, before returning with the same freezing energy in September, a month that is normally fairly warm, ahead of the end-year short rains.
In the West, several nations have been battling uncontrollable wildfires, while the US is bracing for increased storms and hurricanes, with Ida being the latest of such phenomenon.
If this is not an enough eye-opener for us, then we can only imagine what worse experiences lie waiting for the earth in the future.
We need to take charge and drop pollution habits to restore the earth to its green glory, and while at it, isn’t it time people stopped eating bats, frogs, monkeys, and other disturbingly gross cuisines?
