The climatic changes across the world have adversely affected Pakistan. As per a recent study, the sea level in the country is surging by 1 millimetre on a per-year basis owing to the surging temperatures all across the world. Experts are of the belief that owing to this, the sea is engulfing up to 50,000 acres of the land on a per-year basis in Pakistan.
The chest disease specialist of Pakistan has stated this during a plantation ceremony at the Wetland of WWF near the Turtle Beach in the port city.
Dr Nisar Ahmed Rao, the President of Pakistan Chest Society said that Pakistan is 10th among the nations that are subjected to calamities from global warming, and added that the marine forests could have a positive impact on the development.
As per experts, on an annual basis, more than 70 million people die prematurely owing to air pollution, most of these lives could be saved by making the environment cleaner.
He said that this is the reason why Chest Con 2020 is being introduced with plantation to meet the moral and social responsibility of improving the environment. He added that the chest diseases could be reduced by controlling the urban, maritime, industrial and gross air pollution.
