Dear Sir, 05-12-2007
I am Abdul Kareem, an Environmentalist, native of Kerala State of India. I am attaching herewith a file containing more information about me.
Today, one of the most serious problems confronting mankind, as you would probably agree, Is “Global Warming” ?. The consequent climatic changes, natural calamities like Katrina, Rita and the damages they inflict are subjects, which are discussed at length?. However, no viable solution is seen coming forth from any part of the world.
Today, the entire world is concerned with the material comfort of man alone and prominent media like ‘New York Times’, ‘Washington Post’ and ‘Time Magazine’ are publishing some important news at least as “fillers” in their columns. For instance, we are not oblivious of the objections raised by personalities like Dr. Glen Berry (PRESIDENT,ECOLOGICAL INTERNET,NEWYORK) against the destruction of rainforest for cultivation of soya and oil palm in Indonesia
The situation that gives over importance for man, who is only one of the beings on the earth and lesser importance for the sustenance of earth and protection of nature, which is essential for the existence of all living beings calls for a change.
Therefore, my humble request to media giants like ‘Time Magazine’ is to give importance to the protection of earth and its living beings and promote organizations and individuals that work sincerely for such end results.
The earth and its living beings even Time Magazine can survive only through such attempts.
The failure of summits like Rio de Janeiro and Kyoto Protocol proves that efforts to mitigate ‘Global Warming’ by curtailing development activities and inturn reducing the use of carbondioxide is not an easy to implement remedy.
What I want to say based on my 27 years of experience is that “forestation (regenerating natural forest)” is the only enduring solution. Hope that media and other actors will give priority to such issues and channelise their efforts in this direction henceforth.
