History is shouting loudly with the scientists’ voice, but officials do not listen… I was surprised when I read a statement by Dr, Mona Hassan Al – Masri, professor of architecture at faculty of fine Arts, university of Alexandria. The statement said that there are more than 28 areas in Alexandria in danger of drowning as well as more than 1.5 million citizens in Alexandria in danger of displacement… Dr, Mona, then, offered the solutions required to avoid disasters that may befell Alex, among including the establishment of a national centre for early alarm and crisis management, or a center for climate changes in Egypt and the Arab world in order to save the population of Delta and the coasts of the potential dangers.
Dear reader, if you never visit Alexandria before or read about it, please, follow the next lines. Alexandria is one of the largest Egyptian ports on the Mediterranean sea and is one of the greatest summer resorts in the Middle East, so it is characterized by genius of history. Alexandria was founded by Macedonian leader " Alexander the great "who came to Egypt in 332 B.C, the radiation source of culture and civilization the meeting point of scientists and researchers. Alexandria occupied the pride of place among all ancient world capitals and whose sea bottom still retains a lot of treasures and monuments since it was founded until now.
Alexandria is not the only sole party in the issue we currently talk about, but the issue is that of the whole community. Our silence and passiveness towards the catastrophic climatic change is an implicit participation in a crime towards millions who will be displaced and starved.
Environmental experts confirmed that more than 400 million persons are under deteriorating living conditions because of drought, high temperatures, over population, economic deterioration, the conflicts over water and energy sources and the breakout of border crisis between many countries, the matter that is expect to be accompanied by several problems in most world continents during the period between 2010 -2030.
United nations said that after about 30 years, the amount of losses resulting from climate changes will reach one thousand billion dollars, which would negatively affect all economic sectors all over the world … the question that suggests itself now decision makers, what are you doing to do ?
