About a week ago, I posted an article about floods in Europe.
Well, it’s China’s turn now.
I’ve watched a couple of videos of the floods in China, and the situation seems pretty bad.
But there is a bigger problem to worry about: Government censorship.
It has come to my notice that Xi Jinping’s government is censoring all social media and the news channels to downplay the situation in China.
Unfortunately, this will not bode well for them.
I think it’s time for the world to recognize climate change as a global threat, as extreme weather situations become more commonplace across the globe.
The first time I began paying attention to climate change was when there was snowfall in the desert in the Middle East.
Snowfall in the hottest deserts in the world? That can’t be good, right?
Everyday, there’s some thunderstorms, some flash floods, some mudslides and landslides, some hurricanes and cyclones, some tornadoes, some wildfires, some earthquakes and volcanic eruptions in some part of the world; yet 90% of the population has failed to recon the power of nature.
That’s just my assumption. But I am rarely wrong, so, you’ll just have to take my word for it.
I have personally witnessed the power of thunderstorms myself. I know how quickly it can go from beautiful rain, to a fucking nightmare.
Think about all the Chinese men and women trapped in the train in some flooded tunnel, standing for 24 hours with water reaching their chests, waiting for someone to rescue them, running out of hope…
None of us give a fuck about extreme weather until we’re in the face of it.
The logical part of me questions why all this is happening. Why are there floods in China? A quick duckduckgo search reveals that China has built too many dams on it’s waterways. Another search reveals that China has been engaging in water wars by blocking water from going downstream to it’s neighboring countries and causing droughts.
This is nothing new. The strategy has been tried in the Middle East with the River Tigris and Euphrates, and you know what? It didn’t end well.
I’ve always been a huge proponent of believing in mother nature’s mysterious ways. Some things just have no explanation. The floods in China isn’t one of them.
At what point in time did human beings begin to think they were so powerful, that they could alter nature and take command of it?
The human species is as insignificant as it gets. And in the universal picture, we are just a speck of dust. If the entire human species was wiped off the planet today, there would be no loss. The plants and animals would take better care of the planet than we ever have. And that’s just sad. The human species is truly pathetic. We pride ourselves with our culture and education and luxury and technology, but deep down inside, we are just a bunch of fucking idiots who can do more damage than any plant or animal in existence.
When is Xi Jinping going to drown? That’s what I’d like to know.
Man needs to live in harmony with nature. Like the Aborigines. We need to remember that the earth is taking care of us, not vice versa. And if we’re going to pollute the earth and try to destroy it with our retarded endeavors, then we will have to bear the brunt of our actions. That means more floods, more landslides, more earthquakes, more tsunamis and overall, a complete beatdown at the hands of mother nature.
