"Humanity through deforestation, agriculture and urbanization accelerates the runoff of rainwater and drains the land.

'Hot plates' that humans create cause breakdowns in the stable water cycle,rises in climatic extremes,

more frequent flooding, longer droughts, extreme heats, forest fires, drops in groundwater reserves, decreases in soil fertility and biodiversity.
However, the impact can go in both directions. The part of climate change which is a result of land draining by humans can be stopped

and the restoration of the healthy water cycle can be achieved by the comprehensive program of rainwater harvesting, conservation, infiltration and evaporation."
