The changing impact of climate change can be easily felt across the different sectors of the world. According to the sources the number of forest fires have increased by almost 50% in the present year because it has been for the 42nd time that forests have captured fire and have destroyed a total land area which amounts to more than 90.44 hectares. It is important to note that the number of forest fires was 112 last year but this was stretched across the entire year but this year it is definitely more than what was during the last years and this was something which was never predicted by any kind of forest department.
Forest fires not only pollute the environment but also reduce the fertility of the soil and convert the entire cultivable area into a waste land which cannot be put to any use over the period of time. But according to the latest study conducted by the Indian Meteorological Department the weather is likely to experience a drastic change in the month of June which will help to reduce the possibility of forest fires as compared to the possibility in previous years. The early onset of summers led to the prediction that the number of forest fires would increase over the period of time.
It is important to note that the Pune forest division in a recent interview reported that the situation was very serious in the first half but in the second half it is likely to be much better. This is one of the most important aspects which has to be taken into consideration. The temperature has closed 45 degree celsius in only a few states that too only for a small duration of time. It is important to understand that the reduced temperature reduces the amount of heat captured by the water vapours And hence the possibility of forest fire also reduced to the minimum possible extent. The government will definitely help to provide relief in case any forest fire happens but until now such a condition has not arisen in the month of May and this has been for the first time in the history of the country. It has also changed the pattern of farming in different states which are very vulnerable to getting affected by these forest fires.
It is important to note that human factors play a very important role in all of this situation. It has become a major challenge for the entire mankind but it has been caused due to the human intervention of mother nature only. The excessive organisation and globalisation has been caused by the industrialization process and the level of pollution has increased to a great extent. With the increase in the level of pollution the capacity of the pollutants to capture the heat of the sun also increases and all of this brings a massive change.
