World’s most powerful man, president of sole superpower and biggest emitter of UV gases, Mr. Donald Trump, is among the deniers of climate change when he says that global warming is a ‘Chinese hoax’. This attitude towards the gravest threat of this contemporary era would result into catastrophic consequences. Current natural disastrous events in length and breadth of whole world demand for each country’s consideration of the issue of climate change as it is as real as the very existence of these states. It is nature or climate that could be the best ally or worst enemy of any country.

Climate change is much evident by the vital signs in change of raining patterns, changed time period of seasons, frequent flooding and hurricanes, increasing global temperature, and visible presence of smog in bigger cities. Enormous amount of UV gases emission and rising sea level and temperature not only alarmed coastal states but the world as a whole. If this issue is not attended on priority basis, it could endanger the survival and existence of many regions and countries. For instance, Maldives is said to be vanish from the face of earth if sea level is keep increasing on the same pace. Likewise, according to World Economic forum, region comprises of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh will be the prime effete of climate change and could face ‘un-survivable’ summer heat waves by upcoming epochs. Presently 2% of Indian population exposed to heat waves, but it would account 70% in 2100 if needed precautions have not been taken.

In Pakistan, a prominent agricultural country, losses are huge in terms of agricultural production’s damage or the cost of human lives because of frequent flooding in one season and total lack of raining in another or the heats waves and smog etc. Giving accounts of Global Climate Risk Index 2017 by German Watch, Pakistan is amongst top ten most affected countries from climate change between 1996 and 2015.

Pakistan is undeniably vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. It had suffered heavily in hands of natural disasters. Human and public cost measure by DesInventar from 1980 to 2014 revealed a situation of great concern;

Pakistan as an agricultural country produces large portion of its GDP from agriculture sector. This exact mean of revenue is worst affected by the change in climate . Crops production dropped ominously because of pollution, unavailability of water and drastic change in weather patterns. Desinventar and Pakistan Bureau of Statistics portray a worrisome picture of agricultural losses in country.

With this deteriorated condition of agriculture,sufferings would not remain limited to risky farming places. It would have a spillover effect, all over the country,in form of food scarcities and deficiencies.

Despite immense danger posed by climate change, negligible amount of counteractive measures have been taken by Pakistani government and public. Some policies, like National Climate Change Policy and National Forest Policy, have been introduced but with minimum implementation. Legislations like Renewable Energy Technologies Act and Vision 2030 proved to be incompetent in tackling the issue.

Situation could only be better by adopting practical measures on part of government and public. Domestic and industrialist waste management plan of action must introduce.Emission of UV gases must reduce to lowest. Renewable means of energy generation must utilize and international parameters should be followed while installing any project. By persecuting offenders, by spreading awareness and through children training we can change the overall culture of our nation and can turn odd into our favor.
