The greatest threat to the environment is climate change. We need to recognise that the burning of fossil fuels damage the environment and that petroleum is too valuable as a starting material to be merely consumed as a fuel. We must promote the formation of an International Renewable Energy Agency, argues Mohammed Mesbahi.
A peaceful world may be the goal of many of our nations’ leaders and is certainly a concept close to the hearts of many billions of people world-wide. However we are clearly far from achieving this target.
Now, more than ever, it is of paramount importance that we realise the extent to which our planet is in crisis and that we act upon this knowledge in order to facilitate major change. Quite simply what is necessary is a redistribution of the world's resources and the embracing of the principle of sharing at all levels of society.
