Mangaluru: Villagers of Mittabagilu and Malavanthige in Belthangady taluk here, who have been seeing the hills near their village every day, have noticed a wonderful change after the flash floods and landslides on August 9.

As several acres of soil in the hills were washed away, the streams have changed course in some places. In those places where trees were washed away, the waterfalls that were hidden by these trees are now visible.   Looking at the damage to the forest, environmentalists and villagers want the forest department to reforest these areas and ensure that the place gets its greenery back. "Thousands of Shola forest trees and several acres of grassland have been washed away in the Western Ghats. These trees and the grassland help the rain water to sink into the ground and increase the water table and also feed water to the rivers. As ...

Amazon fires likely to burn the environment 30.8.2019
Over 70,000 fires are burning in the Amazon rainforests of South America. Such a calamity will not go on without a cataclysmic effect on the environment, and globally too as the Amazon forests represent about 20 per cent of the world"s forest resources, and occupy four per cent of the world"s land mass. The cause for many of the fires in Brazil is the administration of Jair Bolsanaro, dubbed the "Trump of the Tropics". Many are manmade as Mr Bolsanaro"s policies have encouraged the stripping of the rainforest for agriculture and mining, the denuding a deliberate ploy to serve business interests, which may have been at liberty to set off fires. The efforts to put out the fires are being reluctantly made as Brazil"s President tried to turn his personal battle with French President Emmanuel Macron, who hosted the G-7 summit, into one of nationalism, using clever rhetoric over sovereignty when the world"s leaders were just pointing out the danger to the global ...
