Scars of Mother Nature

in Project HOPE2 months ago

Man became an excavator from the very moment he came into contact with the earth, it is inferred that man, upon realizing that precious materials are accumulated under the ground, immediately began a continuous process of unearthing and discovering the riches that Mother Nature keeps in her womb.

In relation to the above it is important to emphasize two things, for a geologist to unearth the precious materials that our mother nature keeps under the ground is a reason for research in the search to interpret the formation and constitution of the land masses, while for large mining corporations it is an activity that generates income.

However, while digging up the precious materials that lie beneath the ground is an extremely lucrative economic activity, because the minerals, metals, or gems that are extracted make possible almost every aspect of our modern lives, it is also worth mentioning that this activity generates adverse effects and scars on the landmasses.

Among the main adverse effects of mining activity on land masses are the constant deterioration of the biological and natural health of the soil, as well as the countless deformations or scars that this anthropogenic practice creates on the internal morphology of the soil and its external landscapes.

Hello dear friend @lupafilotaxia.
As usual another excellent delivery that you share with us this time, in fact it is always important to measure the consequences that we ourselves cause to our mother nature and that in the end is to ourselves, everything must be in a proper balance.
These contents are always of great importance as it allows us to reflect on what we are capable of doing consciously or unconsciously.

Thanks for sharing such a rich and important content with all of us. Greetings.

Greetings @rbalzan79

"in fact it is always important to measure the consequences that we ourselves cause", do you think that is really done, I am not sure about it unfortunately we do not measure the serious consequences that we have historically generated to the planet, all the chaos that exists is precisely a product of not considering the impact of our actions towards nature.

Greetings my dear friend @lupafilotaxia, the scars that our earth has by the extraction of natural resources is very large, large ecosystems have been destroyed and we still wonder why large climatic phenomena have been generated, which is nothing more than the answer to all the mismanagement of ecosystems.

Excellent topic friend, it generates a great debate from the ecological, have a great weekend next to your

Hello dear friend @amestyj

That's right, "the scars that our earth has by the extraction of natural resources is very large", to the point that we do not have time to correct the damage we have already done to mother nature, we will only have the opportunity to avoid more damage. Thank you for visiting the blog. Greetings to the Amesty Pineda family.

Those rocks are so beautiful, I hope their price is the same as well..

Greetings @andyblack

It will never be the same price, the damage done to mother nature is incalculable. We must act from the individual to avoid continuing to generate deterioration of the planet. Thanks for your comment.

Precious stones that are hidden in the mysteries of the earth, is a way to teach us that what is valuable is inside not outside, success.

Greetings @aplausos

The preciousness of stones, is similar to a mother's womb, every time we mine stones we are killing our mother nature's womb.

Hello @lupafilotaxia, mining activities have a high socio-environmental impact in the areas, countries and even globally, due to the devastation and deforestation they cause.
Although it is true that it is a lucrative and even necessary activity due to the usefulness of the extracted materials, it leaves many scars and impacts on Mother Earth that are difficult to overcome due to the natural cycles and limits of conservation and regeneration. It is a topic that has many edges.
Thank you for sharing this kind of topic in such a balanced and objective way.
Regards

Hello dear friend @raizayanez

Certainly "mining activities have a high socio-environmental impact in the areas", the breaking point is that even when states and environmental organizations know it, nothing is done to balance this kind of exploitations towards mother nature. Thank you for leaving your accurate and timely comment, be well. Best regards

Hello friend, it is certainly a very lucrative practice for many because you can extract stones with an important value. But no one cares about the deterioration of the planet or the earth. We should be more aware. Greetings!

Greetings @franyeligonzalez

As it has been well indicated in repeated international environmental conferences nobody cares about the deterioration of the planet or the earth, unfortunately we do not measure the serious consequences that we have historically generated to the planet. Thank you for leaving your accurate comment.
