PM urges world leaders to realize urgency of climate change

UNITED NATIONS, Sep 27 (APP):Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday urged the world leaders to show seriousness and realize urgency of climate change and effects of green house gases, expressing the hope that the United Nations would take leadership role in that regard.

The prime minister, in his address to the 74th session of the United National General Assembly, said so many leaders had talked about the climate change but he felt there was lack of seriousness as they did not realize the urgency of situation.

“We have lot of ideas but someone say as ideas without funds are mere hallucination,” he added.

Imran Khan said Pakistan was among the top ten nations in the world, which were most affected by the climate change. “We depend on our rivers, we are mainly an agricultural country and 80 percent of the water in our rivers come from glaciers. And even in India, 80 percent water also come from glaciers like Karakorum, Himalayas, Hindukush,” he added.

He said all the glaciers were melting at quite a rapid pace, and if it kept going and nothing was done, then he feared that the human would face a huge catastrophe.
