The atrocities being committed by humans on earth are going to be very heavy in the coming few years. Scientists at the Geological and Mining Institute of Spain say that by 2040, the earth’s surface sinking, or due to it, may affect one-fifth of the world’s population, ie 19 percent of the population.
In a study published in Science Journal, scientists say that there is a state of subsidence in the earth due to the exploitation of ground water. Apart from this, along with drought, deforestation, fast growing activities against humans are also responsible for this.
Experts warn that due to drought in the future, the depletion of the earth will increase rapidly. Human civilization will be in danger due to increase in population. Scientists say that there will be more areas of land where there will be more population, there will be more need of ground water or where there will be more ground water crisis.
India, America, Mexico and China provide food supplies to the world. There is also a lot of exploitation of ground water here, due to which the danger to these countries is high. The biggest challenge is that if these countries try to stop the exploitation of ground water, there will be a crisis of food supply in other countries of the world. In such a situation, there is a need to work fast on subjects like water conservation, otherwise the time to come will be painful for human life.
Researcher Gerardo Herrera Gracia and his team say that due to low groundwater levels, there will be land subsidence at 200 different locations in 14 countries in the world. Through the model by scientists, 63.5 million people in Asia will be affected when the local climate, weather, flood, drought and human activities.
The population has doubled in Iran in the last 50 years. There is no law on ground drainage here. Many cities of Iran are going towards sinking in water faster than other countries of the world. Every year the earth is going down by 25 cm compared to the height of the sea. Jakarta has sunk 2.5 meters in the last 10 years. As a result the government is considering relocating the capital to the island of Borneo.
Scientists say that the world will have to learn a lesson from this outcome of research. If the Earth does not exist, human life will be in such danger, all the countries of the world will have to take many decisions to reduce the subsidence of the land. Exploitation of natural ground water has to be stopped. Human activities have to be reduced. Such policies have to be made so that the surface of the earth can be saved from shrinking, otherwise the time to come can be dangerous for the new generation.
