A Big NO to Deniers From This Part of the World

A little girl child would have been playing with her doll in her little muddy house somewhere in mountain...

A poor farmer would happily be waiting for his crop to get ready and earn some money for his family in rest of the year...

And some beautiful butterflies would have been flying around in the beautiful garden, flower to flower with the chase of little kids behind them...

Neither the little girl with her doll, nor the farmer standing in his field or the kids behind the butterflies know a completely different world far from them -- a world where children in Heartland Institute learn climate change is not real.

They don't know about the world where some people call those who believes on climate reality as serial killer. Perhaps they don't know about the world where people earn billions of dollars with burning of fossil fuel...

Why should such people -- the Deniers -- care about a little girl child living in a muddy house? Because they live in big houses where flash flood doesn't wash away their well protected belongings. Why should deniers care about a poor farmer to lose his crop suddenly with an unexpected rainstorm as they do not go their self into fields or need to grow crops and feed their children? And why should such deniers care about butterflies that are disappearing from gardens as they like to be wealthier rather than caring about the nature for all?

Perhaps someone who denies the reality of climate change could come and see how thousands of such little girls and poor farmers live in Pakistan. Despite the reality of global warming, such families now live with this "new normal" that we call now due to changing weather pattern.

In 2010 flood, nearly 2,000 people died in Pakistan, however loses in terms of financial and infrastructural damages affected about 20 million population in the entire country. In the very next year 2011, another 5 million got suffered due to massive flooding in the Sindh province. Devastation is so big that's why in few place still flood water is stagnant.

As we get closer to another monsoon this year, fears again exist among masses that the same above normal rains would hit number of areas and crop land for another widespread damages. We don't know how many little girls would not be able to play with their dolls and how many farmers would again become helpless until someone come and help them out.

There are thousands people living in remote and highly vulnerable areas in our communities who unfortunately accept this "new normal" as their fate but at least I don't take it as my fate. I feel myself lucky having been trained personally by Al Gore and learn how to connect the dots. Despite the deniers shout to defy the facts it now reveals to many of us why we were facing less devastations in the past than those happening now.

No matter if I live in less developed part of this world, I know why deniers love to fund a school like Heartland institute. I know why such deniers call the believers of climate reality as serial killer. I simply know they are less caring to humanity and more inclined to money making they do by polluting the atmosphere with use of dirty fossil fuel.

May be the deniers have a good support of tiny group of scientists having them well funded and deny the reality of climate crisis. However, they would perhaps need thousands of more years to win a hard fight where they could hide the realities from the world.

Deniers will never win!! As we say a big NO to them from this part of the world...
