Hello Butterfly! It has been a long time since I did my last post but am back with "Broaden your thinking on the relationship between lung cancer and drought."In Roba Abduba's post on "Lung cancer in animals",I found the post important to me because scientific research has proven that lack of water contributes to lung cancer.From my past posts,I have been showing that in recent years,water levels have been rising in the water bodies while the water remaining for domestic use is reducing.That...Read More...

Hello Butterfly! On my last post ,I was working on the effects of climate change on marine life .Today I will be dealing with the relationship between drought ,climate change and corruption. Corruption is the dishonest and fraudulent conduct by those in power ,typically involving bribery .For instance ,Kenya is a country located in the horn of Africa ,though it is an economic powerhouse, it is being faced by an ongoing drought which has been further fueled by the political climate and...Read More...

Hello butterfly, It has been long since I did my last post.I was dealing with the threats that animals are posed with but today I will be working on both the threats and the solutions.To start with,despite us as humans being greatly affected by the changes,animals are the ones effected to a big tune since they don't have anywhere to go or anything to do after they are "evicted" .According to my research,I came up with the following points regarding the threats and the solutions. 1.Rising...Read More...

Hello Butterfly, On my last post,I was dealing with global warming and am back with the effects of global warming on wildlife.This is because I have noted with great concern that in the past I could see many butterflies but today,it is so rare to find one.last week,I came across a statement that went like this,"Even small changes can send hundreds into extinction". The key way to make the animals we have extinct is through habitat destruction.This is whereby ecosystems that animals have...Read More...

GLOBAL WARMING.

Samuel Peter Shirazi (Tigithi)
Hello Butterfly,It is quite a long time since my last post and this is because I was sitting for my mid-term exams.On my last post I talked about effects of floods. Today,I am back with reasons why floods are taking place at such a high rate and some of the things are things we can prevent.They just need some sacrifice. According to experts,the earth’s surface temperature has risen by about 1 Fahrenheit in the past 100 years with accelerated warming during the past 2 decades.There is...Read More...

By giving people more time to take action during flood times which is a part of saving lives.this may involve creation of hotlines that would be used for help when floods...Read More...

On my last post I was working on the ways to tackle flooding but today I will branch on something that will look ironic .I will start by saying that everything happens with a reason and there must be a reason for floods happening.They may have negative impacts but all in all,they must happen.We had control in the past but we can do nothing for now other than waiting and see what will happen.The global warming level has risen by far and will still continue to rise.In short,we can say we are...Read More...

Hello Butterfly! When floods occur,they can be destructive and as usual,they are unpredictable.This makes floods one of the natural calamities that occur most frequently.One ironic fact about floods is that they can happen in places that have never seen rain.As a result of floods,people can loose their loved ones,injuries,isolation of communities,essential services are cut and to add on that,public and private property may be destroyed. Apart from the physical damage caused by floods,they...Read More...

Hello butterfly, Most of the time,people pray for rain but but when it rains,it can sometimes come with negative results and this has effects on the people and also their environment.lets take for instance in Kenya right now,flood water is washing away everything that stands on the way.This is the trick,we have been waiting for rain for all that time but when it comes,it destroys everything.bellow is a list of what diverse weather conditions specifically for rain can cause: 1.taking the...Read More...

Hello butterfly! I have been dormant since my last post which was on'Is the government doing enough to not only counter drought but to completely and effectively eradicate it without using that big mount of resources and leave the public with the knowledge to fight drought and prevent it in case there are signs of it arising'.Currently,Kenya is under attack and the government has put measures to reduce the rate at which trees are being fallen which is a number one factor that encourage...Read More...

Hello butterfly!On my last post I was majoring on the ways that drought can be countered.Today I will be talking on the steps taken by the government to eradicate drought.Despite the fact that the leaders are the ones who should be working very hard to ensure that we get good services such as tapped water,affordable electricity,good road networks etc,they seem to be forgetting their work. 1. By creating awareness on drought -The government through the respective agencies take to its citizens...Read More...

COPING WITH DROUGHT

Samuel Peter Shirazi (Tigithi)
Hello Butterfly! Today I will be posting on ways to cope with drought.in our homesteads,there are many ways that we as butterfly effect members can do in order to cope with drought.On my last post,I was biased on why so many governments are imposing heavy taxes on fuels.One thing they want to eradicate is over usage of these resources which directly leads to the pollution of the environment especially the air we breathe.Apart from that,the ozone layer(a region of the earth's stratosphere...Read More...

WAYS TO MANAGE DROUGHT

Samuel Peter Shirazi (Tigithi)
In my lat post,I talked about the effects of drought.Today,I will talk about the possible ways to manage drought.To start with,many people may be thinking of drought as strictly a natural or physical event.This view of drought provides little or no opportunity to alter the impacts of drought through the application of the necessary drought management teqniques.It is also important to understand drought has both physical and social components. It is also essential for people inhabiting...Read More...

CAUSES OF DROUGHT

Samuel Peter Shirazi (Tigithi)
Hello there!As I said earlier,drought has been what many governments are trying to sort out first.Earlier on,I had mentioned what drought is and I am now going to outline the causes of this monster.They include; 1.lack of rain or precipitation-people have a tendency of thinking that when there is a period of time without rain,there is a drought whereas that should not be the case.some places go for months without having rain and that would be normal for them.But when farmers plant in...Read More...
