Nepal FireNepal is a marvelous mountainous country where you can see snow in the peak of the mountains.You will never I trust if anyone says there was fire a few days ago? Yes, when I asked one of my Nepali friends she told me that she has no idea about it because they believe that Nepal won’t have a severe impact in climate change as it is not located near sea. However, climate change have a severe impact in Nepal as
it mostly affects the tropical regions . Nasa’s satellite imaged that huge fire flames were around the national parks near to Tibet, the highest plain land in the world. Still they couldn’t estimate lost of flora and fauna.More than the lost, the considerable concern is that carbon dioxide emitted in high amount as the result of this fire. In Himalaya regions, stopping the fire was difficult as he geography of the region is complicated and the man power is not enough to pour water by planes and helicopters. Nepalese are able to recognize that the winter is becoming drier and drier and this year it has positioned a record nusually.

“Oh! It’s so hot”, I could say this is one of my roommates favorite sentence. It has attached in her mind and even while she’s sleeping she will tell this. Yes. Not only my roommate, but also my classmates always need either Air Conditioner (AC) or fan. Though we keep the fan or AC on our body sweat a lot. Think about the ancient time once. Before these inventions, how could they live? Rising temperature and the sequences of it are the main reason for all these troubles. We, human, can at least express how we are affected due to these climate changes. How do the animals and other wonderful creatures of the earth show that they are being affected too? There are some ways that they, especially birds, articulate their feeling about this issue. A flock of pelicans rests at Kandalama Lake in Dambulla.When the winter season comes they go to many other countries for their reproduction. I studied in grade 9 Social studies that there are thousands and thousands of Siberia and Western Europe birds come to Sri Lanka as it is “The Birds’ Paradise” with 435 resident species. Moreover, it has many sanctuaries such as Kumana, Bundala, Kalamatiya, Sinharaja Rain Forest, Udawatta Kala, Bellen willa, Muthurajawalla, Minneria, Minepe and Kitugal especially for birds. Further, the climate condition suits those birds, so that they spend their whole summer season in Sri Lanka. Migratory Birds fly over the lagoonSince my childhood, I have observed varieties of water birds come to “Vallai” Lagoon, Jaffna which has been a fascinating scene ever. However, last few years I could observe the difference that there have been only a few species visited. I could say the reason is only the climatic changes. Consequently, the birds cannot predict the season changes in Sri Lanka. Due to this, their arrivals have decreased. It is possible that in the future, these birds will be in the list of endangered species.

Presently, the phenomenon due climate alterations has become dramatically incredible. The effects of the phenomenon are unpredictable as well as inevitable. In this planet, almost all the creatures are affected by global warming and no one can refute this, in my perception. While thinking about this, one of my friends came to online and we had a chat. New Orleans-KatrinaGradually,our talks turned about climate changes and he told me his experience that he was utterly affected by Katrina storm when he visited as a tourist to New Orleans in Louisiana, USA in 2005. It is a low land and one of the most beautiful islands frequently affected by floods, so it is considered one of the vanishing places and the scientists have anticipated that the future generation will not get to see the place.
Though he has already known that New Orleans is one of the vulnerable islands, the experiences he got there regarding the Katrina storm which was extremely terrible. The day bloomed like a doom day and he could feel the differences, but could not predict or even guess what it was. Around 10 am, the storms got overwhelming speed and all roofs were taken off in that place. Humongous trees fell down across the streets and there was power cut, especially some wires were broken and sparkling in the ground.
He had a hard time to get out from my home and pass the street, but he could hear the sirens of vehicles which were taking the injured people to hospitals. So, he could have a lift in the vehicle and pass the place.
As he felt the Katrina first there, he could realize the harassment of it and now he think that the earth should be unconfined from this kind of hazardousness. To make it real and have a better place, we all should hold our hands together and act to at least alleviate it.

Currently, the world could feel the changes due to the warming and one of the changes among them is the increase in velocity of wind storm, sporadically. Oceans get warming, because of the warming in terrestrial side warming. The temperature increase tempts the oceans near to the equator to be warmed. StormsThe phenomenon which is caused from this issue and the effects could not be controlled even by the developed countries such as America and other developed countries. Due to the brutality of the wind, there have been numerous devastations and many people died. The rainfall has increased and it leads to floods even in the city side in Europe, Australia, and the United States. The same condition can be seen in the Philippines and China. The human activities, the main driver, destruct the nature and the effects have been felt by the entire world. Moreover, the countries which are located near to the equator have increased in their temperature by 1’ C. This increase also leads storms to increase in velocity which can be seen when it passes the land side. According to the satellite pictures and researches information, in Polar Regions, the ice sheets have been melting and the big ships can travel through the water, which is threatening news for the countries which lay in the ocean side. Analyzing the last 25 years reports, it is proved that the number of the storms has not increased where as the velocity of it has increased incredibly.

Bush Fire....         Generally, Asian people have a different thought about Australian Climate that Australia is one of the coldest countries and people freezes when they go out, because it is very near to the South Pole. However, there was a day when Australia’s temperature was on the peak of 43’ C, which was on 16th February 1986, because of bush fires as it is commonly known in Australian continent.  In the ancient time, before human being arrived in Australian continent, there were many bush fires occurred intermittently due to lightning strikes and volcanic eruption, but the bush fire was made to be phenomenon by human’ s actions either consciously or accidently. Moreover, the grass fire pushes the country into heavy vanishes such as forests, human life and manmade resources. Recently, there was a wild fire in Melbourne and it has affected the biodiversity and directed to a wide change on it. Specifically, the vascular plants are more prejudiced rather than other vertebrates in this case. As a result, the highest mass of biodiversity in Australia is exacerbated by the wildfire. During summer season, Australia will be in the brink of dangerous condition, because of bush fire and the most overwhelming bush fires have occurred where there were eucalypt forests, because they are easy to fire. So, the people who live near to the forests and plains have been asked to be preparing for bushfire season by keeping firebreak around their homes.
