The struggle against climate change shows love for one’s country
HABERTURK July 20 NIHAL BENGISU KARACA
...Rain is referred to as a blessing in our culture. ...That day the rain turned into a monster, which cannot be the subject of romanticism, but “gothic literature” maybe. The mother and the father of the monster were definite: human beings. ...Environmentalist policy proposals, and even the love of nature, have been devilized through “Gezi protests” and taken as “treason.” But the events that have been taking place are so synchronous with physical data that anticipations of danger can’t be ignored. Loyalty to a country is not just about being a supporter of modern politics. You have to love your country’s wind, flowers, greenery and earth and defend them all. Because you don’t only loose land through occupation and political division, you can also loose it through erosion, floods and hurricanes.
