Humanity is not alone

CLIMATE change is the most urgent issue facing us today, considering the changing weather patterns in many parts of the world. Searing heat, melting glaciers, rising sea levels and widespread flooding are not without dire consequences. It is absolutely vital for all of us to address this environmental catastrophe on a global scale.
Global warming leads to extreme heat waves with the potential to cause glaciers to melt and sea levels to rise, thereby triggering flooding and erosion in coastal regions. Flooding can decrease water quality and limit water resources in arid zones.
In the past few years, our country has experienced an upsurge in the frequency of adverse weather conditions affecting the lives of people across a third of the country. As an agricultural country, 70 per cent of Myanmar’s population depends heavily on the natural environment, and as a result, they are always left with few resources to cope with in the face of disaster.
However, it will not be fair if we find a solution to the problem of human beings.
The effects of climate change do not discriminate in favour of the lives of plants and animals. It is, therefore, absolutely vital that everyone plays their part in combating climate change because scientists have become aware of the mass migrations of animal species to new locations and the increased risk of plant species becoming extinct if temperatures keep soaring higher year after year.
After all, peaceful coexistence means more than the need to live together in perfect social and racial harmony. It also means the need to be in harmony with our environment.
