Policies should serve the environment, not the environment itself.
Today’s climatic events are no longer a matter of chance, they’ve become too serious: fires in Canada, in Vancouver, the city with the most rain in the world. Tornadoes in Chicago, Toronto and Montreal, with thunderstorms of unprecedented violence.
Droughts in Paris and throughout France. Thunderstorms in London and Scotland, with torrential rains scaring the whole of the UK. The planet is suffering and politicians are doing little or nothing.
Aseptic speeches, resolutions that are never implemented, investments in new energies that are 10 times lower than those in fossil fuels. China continues to pollute with impunity, unaccountable to the world around them.
And the emerging countries, and above all Africa, are subject to the diktat of the rich countries that brazenly plunder, especially China, again, all raw materials without taking care of the environment in Africa.
The consequences are disastrous for African countries, with repeated famines and droughts affecting the whole of Africa.
Are the world’s current governments aware of the coming catastrophe? Are they parents or grandparents? What will we leave to future generations?
