so it's a combination of things we have a large increase in fossil fuels that are used to make global warming more we have a huge increase population growth speading out in dangerous areas creating the seeds for disaster. if storms are increasing only slightly and global warming is leading to the fact that the temperature increases more and more polar ice melts and pours fresh water into the oceans lose water salinity and decreases affecting the speed of ocean currents . This is the cause of unbalence and gradually get worse if nothing is done about it . Yes , it has happened many times before that they have ice ages , but before we showed it took thousands of years so it can be done but with our increasing pollution we are speading the process at an alarming rate .

It is due to global warming . We pollute our environment and nature is coming back to us . We cut so many trees planted no new ones will lead to soil erosion causing landslides. We burn fossil fuels and therefore use harsh chemicals that when released into the air can cause ozone depletion and global warming . When there is global warming , global temperature rises to about 2 degrees Celsius per year . This will lead to the melting glaciers in the Arctic and Antarctic. This will increase the sea level gradually. Floods occur in many parts of the tel . When warmer air occurs especially near the seas and oceans , these conditions create the perfect super typhoons ingridient we are experiencing today. These will bring more rain , more floods are more landslides . When climate change patterns . The different parts of the world will experience extreme snow storms , extreme drought , extreme storms of rain in different seasons. The gradual increase of the temperature of the Earth causes the entire system to become unbalanced land which translates to these disasters . We must act now to save the planet not only for ourselves but also for future generations to come.

I'm not so sure there are more natural disasters recently than in the past . With the advent of television and computers make us more aware of them.

They have not.
Human population is increasing and moving into the path
of natural events that have always been taking place..

the equilibrium of nature is affected by increasing anthropogenic pressure and the poor nature tries its best to survive by balancing it.

With the massive increase in world population, more people are living in areas that are just as susceptible to natural disasters as in the past. It is just that more people are killed and property destroyed and that news is instantly covered by ever increasingly more efficient modes of information dispersal.
