LEAD Pakistan urges practical steps to conserve planet
He said this while addressing at a discussion session about celebrating EH organised by LEAD.
He said that their dream was to switch on lights one day without using fossil fuels. "Urged all to support conservation of planet by celebrating EH — a voluntary grassroots movement celebrated globally to inspire people to protect the planet", Tauqeer said.
“Simple steps like not wasting water in our daily use, switching over from plastic bags to paper bags and curtailing greenhouse gas emissions by resorting to energy efficient travel and lifestyles can help conserve life on earth,” he explained.
He said Pakistan ranks number five among top 10 countries most vulnerable to climate change, according to Germanwatch Global Climate Risk Index 2016. Floods, droughts, energy crisis, food shortages, endemic diseases, mass migration, economic deterioration and ecosystem degradation were among major threats of climate change.
EH celebrated on Saturday from 8:30pm to 9:30pm to advocate for greater environmental action by switching off unnecessary lights.
