How Cooling and Balancing the Earth Element Can Prevent Earthquakes

How Cooling and Balancing the Earth Element Can Prevent Earthquakes

Earthquakes are a terrible natural disaster that can cause huge losses and damages. They happen when the ground shakes violently due to sudden movements of the earth's crust. One of the factors that can trigger earthquakes is the lack of water in the soil, which makes it dry and hot. 

Many places in the world have a problem of water scarcity and wastage. They do not have enough sources of water to meet their needs, and they also do not use water wisely. They dump their waste water into sewers, which take it away from the land. They also build their houses, roads, offices and other structures with materials that do not allow water to seep into the ground. This creates a situation where the top layer of the soil becomes dry and hard, and the lower layers become hot and unstable.

One of the ways to prevent this problem is to practice rainwater harvesting and seepage. This means collecting rainwater and storing it for later use, or letting it soak into the ground through natural or artificial methods. This can help replenish the water in the soil, and keep it cool and moist. This can reduce the chances of earthquakes, and also improve the ground water levels, help save water for other purposes.
