Are most natural disasters man-made today?

Asked by: AR22
  • Yes they are.

    Most natural disasters today, like floods and landslides have been caused because of human interference. For ego. The Attractant floods in India were caused because of over construction of buildings, which caused the unstable hilly land to fall like Lego blocks. Similarly, landslides today are caused because people cut down trees which loosens the soil. Global warming, a slow onset disaster, is also caused mainly because of human interference with nature.

  • Of course they are

    It is always the humans who have to play with nature in every possible ways be it from having a dream of full development till destroying the nature . The nature which they have not even dreamed of creating . They destroy it from every way , from deforestation , global warming ,melting glaciers or climate change till a serious disaster . A disaster in which people are homeless and most DEAD. The reasons would be flood , drought , famine , cloudburst ,landslides & so much that it takes long to type or speak them.

  • Yes they are

    Its tendency of humans to play with nature by being in the dreams of development but at the same time we forget about what harm we are causing to nature through the sense of development..For example few years ago engineer's thought of construction dams in Uttrakhand by the name of development but at the same time they had forgotten that they can never shut a mouth of a river and in 2013 the whole state faced floods which is a natural disaster caused due to humans

  • Disasters are man made

    There is no denying the fact that disaster are now more man made.People say that how an earthquake can be man made but now a days earthquakes are caused by the continuous bombing and mining activities. Similarly other natural disaster are also man made like landslides are caused due to deforestation

  • Defining a disaster

    If natural disasters are man made then how were they made BM before man? How were all the Hawaiian made. Some unnatural disasters are man kind can start forest fires and can cut down trees. Man kind can't change the temperature. Man kind can't make it rain to make it flood. SO BAM NATURAL DISASTER ARE NOT MAN MADE.

  • Some can be man-made and others not

    There has been a lot of disasters that are caused by humans, like building on hazard places and oil drilling. But there is also NATURAL disasters like volcanic eruptions and earthquakes etc... All of these are natural but humans can speed up the process and cause a natural disaster to make it happen sooner. I believe that what all humans do like factory farming, building, technology etc... All of these affect how mother nature reacts. Everything has a reaction!!!

  • It's an oxymoron.

    If it is a *natural* disaster, then it's, you know, natural. No natural disaster can be caused by human; otherwise it wouldn't be a natural disaster. It's true that human activity have amplified the effects and how it's impacted humanity and nature alike; but causing a natural disaster? Not even possible.

  • Deaths are going down while CO2 is going up

    If natural disasters are indeed man-made from the result of CO2 being released into the atmosphere, then why aren't we having more of them? Also, why are deaths from extreme weather down 95% since the 1920s? In my opinion, it is not logical to claim that man-made CO2 causes extreme weather, because if it did, then we would be having a lot more of it as well as far more deaths.

  • Natural Disasters have been happening since pre-history!

    The reason natural disasters cause so much attention is only because people get harmed/killed and the media is on the spot to tell everyone else. Natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tornadoes, floods, landslides, etc., have been happening at least since pre-history, and man wasn't around to make it so.

    The only reason this story line exists is because it is politically correct to blame man for global warming, climate change, melting glaciers, rising oceans, etc.

    The last time I checked, the glaciers had been melting since the Wisconsinan Glaciation (12,000 years ago) and the oceans do no rise because of something called isostasy which is akin to a cork floating in water (add weight to it and it sinks; same thing happens when you add water/weight to the ocean; the ocean plate (bottom) sinks down)

    Man wasn't around back then to cause earthquakes, landslides, floods, tornadoes, etc. And he doesn't cause them now.

    It's not my fault dump people build houses on flood plains, or tornado corridors or on the side of active volcanoes or on top of a fault, etc.......

  • No, the question is an oxymoron.

    If the disaster is natural, then humans did not cause it. Humans don't control nature. Humans can make natural disasters worse by living near volcanoes or whatever, but that's not equivalent to causing a natural disaster. It's like blaming a drunk girl for getting raped by her best friend. Sheer ignorance.

  • You cannot blame humans

    For example, human do not cause earthquakes that are generated by tectonic movement and seismic activity, but underground mining can result in instability that causes earthquakes.
    Although man has created some of the calamities, man is not responsible for all natural calamities. It is natures way to destroy and offer new life to many places at once and is an uncountable force that can create a problem any time it wants to. Humans have helped push nature to be more resourceful, but they are not to be blamed for all of it.

To say most natural disasters are caused by humans is very presumptuous. No doubt some are.I'm sure everybody has heard of the dustbowl..It was the worst man made ecological and agricultural disaster in us history..I know there's a lot of conspiracy theorist who would love to credit HARPA for natural disasters.But I think that would be giving them to much credit.
