Researchers have been trying hard and working rigorously by studying patterns and creating artificial environment where they can force the possible disruptions and understand their impact, mode of arrival and the estimated time of arrival. Till that time all we can do is extent our support in any way that is needed in controlling these disruptions with an eye on other possible disruptions that are possible.

From Stone Age to Iron and to finally the modern age, we asliving entities in the process of civilization have been through a lot.Scraping out theories of how the first ever human came to this world to howeven this world came to itself, we are trying to reach the core of everything.Archaeologists have been trying extremely hard to date every possible area onthis world to strike off their hunger of understanding the very existence ifthis world. In this entire process of evolution, the place itself has been to alot of disruption and catastrophic changes or in simpler terms, “Disaster”. Nowthese disruptions are not limited just to humans. It could be anything fromhumans to climate to economy to things around us etc. The point of concern ishow do they erupt?
Nature in its purest form is nothing but the cocoon tryingto protect its larva i.e. humans and its surroundings. Once the larva reachesthe maturation it disrupts the cocoon and finally it breaks free to become abutterfly. There are a lot of theories that most of the disasters are caused byforced human disruptions in the stable environment. Well it might be right to acertain extent but is it right to blame just humans for the effect? As quotedabove, when someone force a disruption he/she does not imagine that it’ll getconverted into a disaster. Sometimes the intention of disruption could be forthe betterment of society as well. So it is hard to put blame on a particularspecies.
Disasters are nothing but a part of our day to day life.Though harsh but they are always in front of us, sometimes noticeable and sometimesnot until it reaches its maturation point. Now to understand that thin life ofdifference of trying to analyze those small un-noticeable things might help ussave a lot of them and if not save then control to a certain extent. As theevolution process goes on, the entropy of the system increases as well and sodoes the scope of interaction with new disasters.
With advanced technologies and increased awareness amongstgeneral people and authorities a lot of disasters have been identified and necessaryprecautions are taken place from time to time. For example, today informationon an upcoming storm or hurricane or a tsunami or a meteor shower or volcaniceruptions are estimated months before their arrival and even their impact uponarrival. Thus preparedness is according to the collected information. Even withthese information available we have not reached a state where we can eliminatethe disaster, we can just control the extent of it.
Coming to how many hazards are still left to be controlled islike finding a needle in a stack of hay. Though researchers have been tryinghard and working rigorously by studying patterns and creating artificialenvironment where they can force the possible disruptions and understand their impact,mode of arrival and the estimated time of arrival. Till that time all we can dois extent our support in any way that is needed in controlling thesedisruptions with an eye on other possible disruptions that are possible.
