    We respect your advice Sir.. But renewable energy is way too costly for us to afford right now. We are already surviving under the loans of IMF. The best and most economical way right now is coal, which we already have in abbundence. We will use it. You guys have wasted trillions of dollars in producing electricity through coal in past and damaging the mother nature through carbon emmissions. Now when nature is acting against you (climate change), you guys have learnt, you should have not disturbed the mother nature.

    We will try our best Sir not to go against mother nature through carbon emissions by balancing it through growing more trees. But if you guys are that much interested in renewable energy and save nature. Help us! and we save the nature together. Give our IMF loan back to IMF and invest in renewable energy sector here.Recommend

    Pakistan is NOT releasing enough CO2 emissions to make even a tiny dent in the global climate. The First-world and second-world countries, and some third world countries (like India), have however not yet formulated and acted on sufficient environmental preservation laws and this is hurting countries like Pakistan. We should be offered remuneration for your actions that are indirectly affecting us and costing billions of dollars yearly.Recommend
