Cold attitude to climate change

Despite the presence of a large number of experts and key world personalities, the climate change conference in Paris provides little hope for the future. Big powers are still blaming each other and no one wants to take responsibly for the rising temperature and climate disaster. The world is witnessing the worst flooding in history and several rivers have crossed their banks, entering big cities. Several European countries have also been badly affected by flooding. Thousands of Bangladeshi and Indian farmers have lost their agriculture land due to the rising sea level, and are finding it hard to survive. 
Sri Lanka also faced the worst floods in its history with thousands of people being forced to migrate to safer areas recently. China has also been hit by floods in its eastern province recently. Australia is facing the warmest summer ever. More than 1,000 people lost their lives in Pakistan due to the heat. Everyone agrees that all this is happening due to climate change and global warming. Despite this reality, the world community has failed to provide any concrete solutions to global warming. Several environmental conferences held in the past have failed to come up with real solutions, mainly due to the selfish attitude of big powers, including the six industrialized countries.
