In the Black Sea region of our country, it rains abundantly, sometimes very heavily, while drought is constantly increasing in the Central and Southern regions.
Billions of tons of water go to the sea in the north without being used, and lakes, dams, wells and underground waters are established in the south and central Anatolia.
The Mediterranean region is in the first degree drought zone, drifting into disaster, drought hit central Anatolia, nobody cares. The issue is on the agenda because people are dying in the North. It is not on the agenda because people have not yet died in the south.
We mourn 125 people in the North, millions will be harmed in the South, thousands will die, but no one moves.
The press, which spends time with the agenda created for various reasons, does not bring enough importance to this vital issue of our society.
My dear readers, the places you see as deserts in other countries were once green pastures. Those places are now sand piles displaced by the wind. These are natural events that have happened and are known. This change has also started in us.
If measures are not taken, we will face irreversible “disasters” in our Central and Southern regions. Then I won’t be alive, but someone will say, “If precautions were taken in time, we would not have encountered this “disaster”, it was “murder”.
I know that when I say what we have to do, the negative side of us as a society will back up, but I will still do my duty.
What needs to be done is to transfer the abundant water in the North to the dry key points in the South and Central Anatolia without wasting any time.
Just as oil, which is much more difficult and dangerous to transfer, is transferred thousands of kilometers through pipes, water can be transferred more easily.
There are some things that money can’t be a problem for not doing. If it happens, either the country will perish, or life! Those who bring money to the fore as a problem regarding desertification and water have a defect in their minds.
One solution to the fact that the construction in the river beds in the north does not cause human deaths is to build small dams and water traps from earth. We can pump the excess water to be collected in these dams to the dry places.
With this measure, we will have a solution both in the North and in the South.
For years, I have been suggesting that the unused water of streams and rivers be transferred to arid places, instead of flowing into our seas, which are in danger of rising. If this method had started about fifteen years ago when I wrote it, the size of the drought we face today would have been much less.
If we do not do what is necessary now, there is no doubt that the scale of the drought will reach the level where the measures will not benefit.
As in all matters, we are harmful to ourselves because of our own thoughtlessness and negligence. With our silence, we are in a mental eclipse as a nation.
No one else can save us from this disease.
