Petitions

You reap what you sow, your karma comes back and bites you in the ass...it does for everyone. I have seen this happen to me as well. Kerala as a state is one of the cruelest states in India to animals. To top that the govt. has also been wiping out ecologically fragile areas of Kerala to make resorts and buildings.  This was to happen. Here is a small excerpt from a hindustan times report.

Kerala is among the states that receive the highest monsoon rainfall, but sustained low-pressure conditions over India’s western coast this year have caused the flooding in the state, India Meteorological Department officials said. Different studies, however, have found that climate change and deforestation were the main causes of an increase in rainfall.

Environmental scientist Dr VS Vijayan, a member of the expert panel on the Western Ghats, said Kerala was going through a man-made disaster. He said the impact should have been limited if the Gadgil committee report, aimed at protecting ecologically-fragile mountain ranges, was implemented.

He attributed the floods to human incursions and unscientific developmental activities in ecologically-sensitive areas.

“This was waiting to happen. Insensible use of land, soil and rocks led to this deluge. Landslips and flash floods happened in areas that witnessed widespread human incursions. I hope everyone will learn a lesson from this. Due to climate change, such tragedies are bound to increase. Nobody can stop rains or control floods. But we can take measures to lower the intensity of such impacts,” he said.
