Global warming is not the new talk of the town, in fact, its old.
Old enough for many generations to know about it.
The rising global temperatures are erasing trees, literally making them extinct. Species are being doused in fire or gobbled up by hellfire, but the truth is WE ARE LOSING THEM!
Ever since a child grows up, they remain in the cover or canopy of this environment, specific just to Earth. It is as unique in the galaxy as are humans from one another. Space scientists and astrophysicists have found many planets like Earth, but nothing is Earth.
Your child can be like you but cannot be you, so is it with your parents.
Extinguishing Earth is not a sane process!
But, how do human lives cope then?
Many argue, humans have just one home, and resources are limited.
So there is nothing more to exhaust, and humans live by exhausting others.
One human will exhaust several resources to live and only to die in the end. They give way to another similar species called an offspring more often. I am not sure if I can call it funny or aimless. But, human life, till now seems to go nowhere.
More so, or is it that I am wrong.
Global warming is a global phenomenon. No longer global since only a few, behind closed doors understands what we are heading to!
Our entropy, or put it better, our disorderliness.
But now that the global temperatures are rising globally, what is at immediate stake?
Impact of global warming on the tree world
A few more splendid mountain tree species will go down the flames & fumes.
The ones growing in highlands, mountains, and hills are acutely susceptible. Increased carbon dioxide levels and a rise in global temperature levels. Everyone is not sheep or fish and like us, they too, are different.
Each species is different from the other.
Pines are different from oaks and cedars as much as I am different from you.
Be it the tall Ponderosa pines of the western United States or the Apies pindrow of the Himalayan Mountains.
Some species are trying to climb higher, shifting and changing biomes, even other trees for companions, but then the solution is not a long-lasting one.
Each time these trees are moving higher or sideways, they are taking a risk of leaving their original home. They are also taking precautions to make things more unpredictable, yet chances after chances are making way for only a few more years of sustenance.
That too, meanwhile, if someone is not chopping them off or removing them for food, fodder, medicine, or timber.
Forest fires, Agh! It is another brutal factor, killing Amazon rainforests, and the far-fetched Australian lands.
Making space for more concrete and more buildings is triggering the entire process.
The human population boom that will set in by 2030, now with so many deaths from COVID-19, might shift another few years more.
But then the trees are trying.
The 2005 forest fires devastated the ecosystem of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains around Pueblo, Colorado.
A decade later, the plants tried re-growing back, and in 2016, life changed in these terrains with more greens coming up and the pines returning.
But, the question is, no matter how hard they try, are we, as a human race trying hard enough for them to make an impact?
