Is it because the god want to punish the human race because of their atrocities? Is it because the human endanger his and other animals' habitat?

I am a believer of Bible. So I don't believe that natural calamities are punishments given by God. God don't punish people that way. According to the Bible this is a grace period. Your second doubt is more reasonable. Especially we in Kerala know it very well. Man is exploiting the nature overly. indescriminate deforestation, leveling of hills and mountains, excessive exploitation of ground water, excessive emission of green house gases such as carbon di oxide etc. These are the main reason for many calamities. Then there are purely natural calamities like volcaos, earth quake etc. Plate tectonics is the main reason for these. Not man related. Thank you.
