In view of the forthcoming Copenhagen meeting of world leaders on the climate change issues Professor Munir Maniruzzaman (an Honorary Fellow of CEPMLP) has written an OP-ED on climate justice.
In light of the established scientific consensus there is little doubt that the current climate crisis is anthropogenic as opposed to what Sarah Palin tried to sell to the world during the last US presidential election not long ago! When we see the rapid melting of the North-Pole glaciers, sea-level rising, repetitious flooding in all parts of the world, food shortages, drought and cyclone hitting everywhere in a vicious cycle affecting millions ? it is clear that our mother nature returns to us in revenge with a vengeance again and again. We should wake up and do something for our own good and for our posterity. The whole world is now pinning its hope on the forthcoming Copenhagen meeting of the world leaders on the climate change issues in December this year. The big question remains whether they will be able to do something great if they do not have ?the right political will.? They must have it here and now. The world cannot wait any more, it is now or never!
