Cancun Summit on Climate change is is four days old today. something is missing to me-African voices. several speakers i guest have spoken extensively on climate change and its impact on global development. i however haven heard voices from Africa whose people including my good self is suffering the brunt of climate change.
Are Africa reps there at all? i am not sure they are hooping from one shop to the other spreeing taxpayers money on wrest watches, and quality shoes and christmas hampers. Our leaders over the years take opportunities on international duties like Cancun summit of climate change to blowing the nations' revenue at the expense of development. The summit which to me is serious business and provides opportuniies for Africans to be heard aloud through our leaders should not be toyed with or else lives would be on fire.
Climate Change, global warming and it confirmed evidences are in Africa so glare that one not use telescopes or scientific chemicals to determine their intensity. The sun is scorching each day, extreme flooding is rocking villages, storm rains and winds enormous in Africa, waters drying up in streams and river bodies, increased in heat related diseases causing deaths, food shortages and prolong droughts and loss of biodiversity among other things are emprical evidences-available in Africa.
With these so pronounce in the continent that our African reps in Cancun do not need any other evidence to convince world leaders the need for radical action to at least halt or reduce climate change effects on the continent. Their silence over the issues i outlined here and many others including youth migration, conflicts, armed robbery at the summit would mean that Africans non serious people and deserve nothing but to be "colony".
African poor and suffering more subtle to the word vulnerable and the summit in Cancun provides a unique opportunity for the continent to present itself to the world-blame if necesary developed nations and praise if the need arises. The long silence of the world leaders over climate change brought the world to stage and this is a perfect time to take action or never. My hope, my dream, and my expectations; all nations must be bury their selfish interest and agree on a common thematic plan to save humanity from looming disaster as a result of climate change.
Has somebody seen Africans' reps in Cancun? And where are they? at summit grounds or in shopping malls?
