One of the most common natural disasters, but also one of the most commonly forgotten, is wildfires. These take place in many different countries all over the world, particularly during the summer months, and can be caused by a range of different things. Some of the things that can start the wildfires can be totally natural, while others can be manmade, but the speed at which they spread is entirely down to nature. The two natural causes of wildfires are the sun’s heat and lightning strikes, while they can also be caused by campfires, smoking, fireworks and many other things. The reasons that they spread so quickly are prolonged hot, dry weather, where the vegetation dries out, which is why they often take place in woodland.
To write a cause and effect essay, you’ll need to determine a scenario in which one action or event caused certain effects to occur . Then, explain what took place and why! This essay allows us to identify patterns and explain why things turned out the way that they did. How do I choose a topic and get started? Try choosing a major event, either in your own life or an event of historical significance. For example, The Great Depression . Cause of The Great Depression: stock market crash How would we elaborate? We'd discuss the behaviors, carelessness, errors, and even cultural attitudes that led to the crash—explaining why it was devastating. Effects of the Great Depression: joblessness & poverty What should we say about the effects?
Human activity is not solely responsible for climate change. It can occur due to natural causes as well. Large volumes of sulphur dioxide, ash, water vapor and dust escape into the atmosphere when a volcano erupts. Volcanoes also produce aerosols which reflect solar energy back into space. This cools the atmosphere. However, although volcanoes produce CO2 and greenhouse gases it is minor when compared to what we humans emit into the atmosphere. Changes in the Earth’s orbit and changes to the ocean’s currents are also natural causes that cause climate change.
