Icy concerns

Reference to Raj Chengappa’s article, “In the world’s ‘coolest’ place, heat is on” (Ground Zero, Sunday Tribune, June 2), the new Arctic Council must work towards making the earth’s atmosphere cool. The world should effectively reduce gas emissions from industries as these are responsible for polluting the atmosphere and heating it up. Natural ice is necessary for the survival of this planet.

Global warming is an issue of prime significance. If not timely contained, it can lead to catastrophic consequences for mankind. It should be accorded primacy by all nations. Globing warning has already begun to wreak havoc in various parts of the world, causing extensive damage to infrastructure and loss of human lives. Developed countries have contributed the maximum to global warming and it is their duty to initiate efforts to contain its adverse effects and maintain the ecological balance.

Good change

Apropos “Filling every moment versus savouring it” by Ira Pande (Sunday Tribune June 2), “Twitter-spell” is a blessing as this on-your-fingertips technology has provided an opportunity to the young and old to make use of the language that is still not a common man’s cup of tea. Had these people been given more (affordable) chances, they might have ended up differently. With smart phones within the reach of most, maybe a revolution in techniques and modes of education is required rather than leaning on the past.

Cause right, method wrong

This refers to Ved Marwah’s article, “Not the time for blame game, get the act together” (Sunday Tribune, June 2). It is unfortunate that the BJP and the Congress are blaming each other for the guerrilla attack on the Congress convoy. Both parties should unite to tackle this threat to national security. The tragedy could have been averted if there were no security lapses. The root cause of the Naxal terror is the exploitation of the tribal people and their natural resources. The mining mafia is exploiting the land and the tribesmen are being deprived of the basic needs for survival. The Maoists are raising their voice for social and economic justice. But they have chosen a wrong path. Gun culture is unacceptable in any democracy.
