Comments on: The spectre of climate change in Kashmir http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2009/08/20/the-spectre-of-climate-change-in-kashmir/ Perspectives on South Asian politics Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:03:22 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Pravin Rajeshirke http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2009/08/20/the-spectre-of-climate-change-in-kashmir/comment-page-1/#comment-9293 Mon, 31 Aug 2009 09:27:57 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/india/?p=1791#comment-9293 It is pity that… here the term ”what you sow you reap” does not apply. Over last 40 to 50 years western countries (US and European) have done so much damage to this atmosphere, by their industrial use of natural resources. And still they are least affected by the current climate changes.
The countries which were traditionally highly dependent on their habitat are affected. These are not industrialized, so they do not contribute to the CO2 rise, their areas are affected by large extent.
Such a small world.
I do not want to blame western countries solely, the developing countries like India, China etc, are also following same path. But the per capita Carbon release in western countries in too large compared to developing countries. Now the time has come, the people who started it, should take the initiative to curb their carbon emissions, instead of blaming developing countries.

Action is also needed by the locals to preserve and save their homeland.

The author has shown her concern in a sympathetic way. I wish govt and all those concerned to save this paradise on earth should wake up. Reports and articles wont work, action is needed on ground.

It seems as if in our country we are not keen on preserving our heritage..beautiful places, etc. I wonder why..

We need to learn from other nations in Europe / US where a keen effort has been put in to preserve National Heritages and not only civil administration but also locals take pride in doing so.

A long way to go..

Kashmir is such a beautiful place, it’s a shame to see it in its current state thanks to people who place their luxurious lifestyle over the beauty of the place..
