Life on earth is in danger. Our environment is changing faster than scientists anticipate. The increasing loss of biodiversity, mass extinction, wildfires, heatwaves, droughts to rising sea levels, crop waste are the symptoms of political inaction. The gap between political rhetoric and environmental action in the context of global efforts to combat climate change has been a subject of debate since long; however, has become a subject of concern and scrutiny, particularly since the adoption of the Paris Accord in 2015.
The Politics of ego and economic greed have never ceased to drive the world’s events. After WWII, Russia-Ukraine conflict has become the largest military conflict in history. The use of a large amount of military equipment including all types of conventional weapons, involving thousands of armed men from both sides has claimed many lives. Under such vile circumstances where human lives do not matter, the environment is suffering largely as well.
Why has environmental governance failed? GREED
