Cli­mate change big­ger threat than ter­ror­ism: PBIF

The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

Pres­i­dent Pak­istan Busi­ness­men and In­tel­lec­tu­als Fo­rum (PBIF), Pres­i­dent AKIA, First Vice Chair­man of the Busi­ness­men Panel of FPCCI and for­mer pro­vin­cial min­is­ter Mian Zahid Hus­sain on Mon­day said that cli­mate change is big­ger threat than ter­ror­ism but there is lit­tle re­al­i­sa­tion about it. Global warm­ing is to in­flict more harm than any other prob­lem but it is not a pri­or­ity for the govern­ment while masses con­tinue to strug­gle to re­main afloat, he said. Mian Zahid Hus­sain said that floods in­flict­ing losses of tril­lions of ru­pees and leav­ing many home­less and job­less, melt­ing glaciers, re­duc­ing wa­ter ta­ble, ill­timed rains and drought in Thar and Balochis­tan is linked to cli­mate change which has taken toll on masses, farm­ing com­mu­nity and the econ­omy.
