When we flash back to few days or maybe few months, we realize that the day had been very hot. Same as in Sabah, it was really hot that caused some of the forest to be on fire. It’s not that anyone was burning the forest but it was caused by the really hot heat from the sun to caused hot spot on some area of the forest.
To make it simple, keep this basic – Lots of leaves from trees fall to the ground, the hot heat from sun evaporate the Water molecules inside causing it to become dried. Then when the leaves is totally dried, if we expose the leaves to more heat, the leaves will keep the heat and it will actually start fire when it reach the critical heat.
So if the day was too hot for days or months, this will actually become too dangerous to the forest and even us. To think carefully, there is not much of a good to prevent the sun from reaching the forest. The easiest thing to do is to lower the heat of the sun from reaching the forest. But how can we do this?
Compared to few years back, the amount of Sun that reach earth had been insanely increasing. Most scientific research found out that for decades, human activity had been supporting to the thinning of the ozones layer and was found out few years back that there is a hole created in the ozone layer in North Pole. This Ozone layer is actually a very important component of earth. It acts like a sun glasses for earth in which it filter the sun light that reach the Ground. So the thicker it was, the less sun light reach the earth and earth will be cooler.
The easiest thing that we can do to lessen the heat from the sun was to stop deforestation. Stopping deforestation means we are preventing the cut down of the forest. When less trees is cut down, more carbon dioxide could be converted into oxygen and when more oxygen exist, world will be cooler. Plus when there is trees, more water could be evaporated and this will help in making more rain to falls. The existence of more oxygen also helps in making and curing the hole in ozones.
There is few other steps that could be taken to lessen the heat from the sun such as decreasing the effect of global warming, decreasing the release of chemical to our environment that might react with the air under the existance of heat and much more. But lets just focus this on stopping deforestation as it is among the easiest to be done by everyone.
If government were to stop the deforestation and making the law to conserving all the forest area in their country, I believe in the coming years, we won’t see much drought. Plus this will also lower the risk of the forest to be on fire.
