Pakistan is the Sixteenth Most Vulnerable Country to Climate Change. India is Second. Time to Renegotiate those River Treaties While There's Time

All our politicians should get on that water discussion thingy with India now. And if they're too busy our foreign policy bureaucracy should be quietly talking about it on their own. It's not as if the federal bureaucracy ever cared too much for politicians opinions. In the meantime, a map with a list for the sixteen countries most "sensitive" to anthropomorphic climate change.

Damn, how did they figure this stuff out?

Yes, the water discussion thingy with India can be one of many ways to go lower down the list of vulnerable countries. 'Timber mafia' that exists in Pakistan also needs to be dealt with accordingly, which is more of a political issue.

Yaar, Murtie, when you're interested in science, you work whatever way you like.

And Amna, mafias are the problem of Pakistani politics. Religious mafia on the Afghan border, military mafia in GHQ, political mafia in parliament, and timber mafia in the north, with us having a transport mafia in the south.
