Flooding is a natural disaster that can happen anywhere in the world. It’s not uncommon for floods to occur when it rains, but some of the worst ones have been caused by heavy rains that cause rivers to overflow and flood low-lying areas.
When we think of global warming, we usually think of its negative impact on our environment and economy. But scientists have been monitoring climate for about as long as humans have existed. The earth’s atmosphere is constantly changing as it warms up and cools down, which causes the earth’s surface to shift slightly each year.
Forest naturalists and conservationists have long been aware of the importance of afforestation. As we search for new homes for our wildlife, we should also work to reduce the amount of land that is cleared and developed each year. Forests not only provide habitat for wildlife but also provide carbon storage, which is essential for survival.
