If everyone cooperates and grows more trees, the effect of global warming and climate change can be reduced in Myanmar, urged a meteorologist U Win Naing.
U Win Naing forecasts weather conditions online, and he also advocates growing trees by demonstrating data and evidence over climate change.
“Due to climate change and global warming, the temperature in our country will be 1.5-2 degrees Celsius higher than the average until August. To eliminate it, I have continuously urged the cultivation of trees as part of educational activities. Only growing trees can reduce this impact over the next years. If not, it is difficult to deal with it,” U Win Naing explained.
Either cultivating crops or planting vegetables can generate oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide. In Myanmar, the amount of carbon dioxide absorption from trees and greenhouse gas emission has not been found to be much different, he said.
“Our country is still fine, not like Africa and deserts. We have more trees. If we all cooperate in growing trees, we have a chance to reduce the impact of climate change and global warming in the next two to three years. It is terribly hot this year, and heat-related deaths increase,” he said. — Htet Oo Maung/ZS/ED
