The information minister made the call while addressing a seminar on ‘Securing Ecosystems to Protect the Earth’ on the occasion of ‘World Earth Day 2022’ at Nirdap Auditorium in the capital on Friday (April 22). The seminar was organized by the sub-committee on forest and environment of Awami League.

Hasan Mahmud said, ‘We are the owners of this world but not only us, from small ants to other animals also own it. We are using all the resources of the world for our needs. But, we are not worried about our needs in the future. Once upon a time, dinosaurs invaded the earth. That dinosaur is extinct. ‘

‘The world is warming up today. This temperature is rising, it is rising because of us. Not only are temperatures rising, sea levels are rising, ice is melting, there are many more negative reactions. These are happening due to global warming.

Noting that the people of the country are not aware of protecting the environment, he said, ’20 million people live in Dhaka city. Everyone thinks that it is the responsibility of the city corporation to keep it clean. In this way, it is not possible to keep a city livable in any way.

Criticizing the arbitrary use of polythene, the minister said, “I myself never use polythene. There is a law banning polythene. But, now everything is given polythene. After conducting the expedition for some time, it disappeared into the air again. If people did not take polythene, then polythene would not come. People need to be made aware. Otherwise, nothing will be saved. ‘

Calling on the people to take care of the environment, Hasan Mahmood said, Those who are big industrialists, those who do not keep nature in mind along with their industrial production, those who are hitting the river; They are the enemies of the nation. We have to build resistance against them.
