58

Terming what he called “environmental terrorism” responsible for the climate carnage in Pakistan, Pasban Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman Altaf Shakoor said millions of flood victims in Pakistan demand environmental justice from the capitalist industrial countries involved in the crime of carbon emissions.

He said on the occasion of COP26 Glasgow Conference it was committed to form a trillion dollar a year fund from 2025 – after a previous pledge for richer countries to provide $100bn a year by 2020 was missed. He said the promise of one billion dollar fund proved to be white lie.

He said that the Glasgow agreement had pledged to significantly increase money to help poor countries cope with the effects of climate change and make the switch to clean energy.

He said climate change carnage in Pakistan demand from the industrial world to honor their pledge. He said the share of Pakistan in carbon emissions is just one percent but it has paid a hundred percent penalty in presence environmental terrorism caused by brutal climate change.

He said that the world community has left alone the Pakistani nation reeling under the climate carnage and it is not ready to pay their due share of this global climate penalty. He said hatred and anger in Pakistan against the countries responsible for world carbon emissions is rising.
