Maladive's cabinet meeting

Hello friends..

Some of my views on environment change...You must have heard in news that the Maldives (the island country in southwest part of India ) are holding there cabinet meeting inside the water!! Its all done just to show the world their fears...We could just make a laugh out of it, but we had to look for the cause.

On of the statistics shows that the way the ocean is increasing in its height ,This small country is in the face of extinction in another 100 yrs!!..That does mean a lot to there countrymen..just to think that the place you are leaving is going to submerge in the near future..just bring shivers in one's spine!! Does it matter to us??...No, not now. So why do we think for them??

We have to as it also means the coastal regions of our country also faces the same situation. We could talk of submerging of many small islands in Andaman and Nicobar, the melting of glaciers in Himalaya, the floods in coastal region...The same thing will affect many parts of the world. The only difference would be some of these countries would be better prepared than the others. We are talking of million of people, there life, home, culture..all at risk.

Can it be changed, reversed??..Yes may be but that would be the change too costly for today's world...things that our capitalist world will never listen or heed. The government , the people could just talk...they just don't understand the seriousness of the issue. We can only watch silently this small island country as it asks for help...as a mute spectator...or just laugh it out.
Who cares? 100 yrs are a lot...we can still enjoy our life...or will we??

global warming is a dangerous problem but no one is giving a damn right now. Maybe after a couple of centuries even our parliament will be submerged!
