Coronavirus (278) Politics and political economy of climate change and COVID-19

31 March, 2020

Dear All:




To understand the politics and political economy of human-induced climate change you do not need to be a scientist or an environment expert. If you merely observe the green house effect, global warming, pattern and frequency of disasters, even COVID-19, Coronavirus outbreak, floods, draught, and other calamities-you will easily realize the worst impacts of climate change. The industrialized countries, producing carbon dioxide, and green house gas are responsible for the climate change, and global warming. Those rich, developed countries are responsible for the death of millions of people due to climate change, different disasters. And very unfortunately it would continue if the responsible countries and the global leaders do not tackle climate change together through perfectly integrated efforts soon globally. ..

I have described more contemporary issues include COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak in my story published today titled Politics and political economy of climate change and COVID-19.
