The former Egyptian Minister of Environment, Mostafa Hussein, warned of a major catastrophe threatening the world represented by climate change, coinciding with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi’s heading to Britain to participate in the Climate Change Summit
Hussein added, during a telephone interview on the “Echo of the Country” channel, that the problem of climate change has real parts and others that may be fabricated, explaining that what will happen from earthquakes and volcanoes reflects that the world is angry at us because of human behavior.
The former Minister of Environment added that what was agreed upon by the world at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris, about 70% of it has not been achieved, adding that industrialized countries seek to achieve their interests without considering other environmental consequences.
The former Minister of Environment explained: “The upcoming matters must be analyzed and the major industrial countries must solve the financing problem and put their support fund at the world’s disposal to confront the problems of climate change,” noting that the industrialized countries are trying to compensate for their losses after the Corona pandemic without considering what might happen in the world.
And Mustafa Hussein added that since 1992, Egypt has not talked about earthquakes, and we should prepare well for climatic changes that may occur, adding that Egypt is not far from what is happening in the world, but is in the middle of everything.
The former Minister of Environment added that America, China, India and Russia should find funding to confront climate change, adding that these countries are the reason for these changes because they seek to advance their economies at the expense of other countries of the world.
And the former Minister of Environment continued, “If the temperature of the planet increases at a rate of more than 1.5 degrees, it will cause great devastation in various parts of the world,” noting that floods will affect all countries of the world and no one is excluded from the disaster.
