Question for Indian Env Minister, Jairam Ramesh ……

Posted by NYCA Blogger on December 12, 2009


This is the text read by Alina Pokhrel on behalf of South Asian Youth

We, South Asian youth, express deep concern over your statement about the lack of link between climate change and glacial melting. Denying climate change to be the cause of accelerated glacial melting is only serving to undermine efforts to mitigate greenhouse gases to avert the climate crisis.

We have heard a lot of talk about development space and atmospheric space, however, Honorable Minister, if you deny climate change and insert politics, you are not just jeopardizing our futures but further entrenching us into generations and generations of poverty.

We urge you to show the moral leadership and take deep emission cuts immediately. Foreign policy agendas like obtaining a Security Council seat should not be a bargaining chip. Poverty is an overriding  and immediate concern and sustainable development is only possible when climate change is addressed.
