NY college holds global warming seminar in association with Dunya TV


NEW YORK CITY: Bronx Community College, affiliated with City University New York held


a seminar in association with Dunya News over global warning and its effects.


Physics and Engineering Department of the community college organised the event which was


attended by a number of Pakistani students and professors.


Professor Hamid Khan shed light on aftermath of destruction caused by different weapons used


in different wars in several parts of the world in the past decades.


According to him, besides tragic loss of lives during these wars, other living beings and


environment suffered terribly as result of usage of weaponry. He said that global warming was


causing winters to shrink and increase in oceans level by making glaciers melt which concerns


all of us.


Dr Ijaz said that warm water not holds lesser amount of oxygen but heavier amount of carbon


dioxide as well which disturbs sea animals. Another speaker, Professor Dr Charles Mike warned


that there was a possibility of widespread plague if sea animals started to die in large numbers.


Dr Rashid Zaidi said that unfortunately world powers were not considering an issue that should


be thought about and taken seriously.


Dr Shamrez Shamoon from Columbia University called for holding workshops and urging


governments to stop manufacturing chemical and nuclear weapons.


Dr Shamoon appreciated Dunya News efforts for being of help in organizining a session that was


needed. A Pakistani student, Ishrat Naseem said that the real purpose of science and technology


was to better human lives and not to develop ways to destruct one another.
