Human Lives Human Rights: A few days ago, world leaders gathered in Glasgow, Scotland, to talk about climate change around the world and take action to save the earth, as many environmentalists see this summit as the last chance to save the earth. However, what seems does not matter at this summit is the right to life for humans.
Leaders and representatives of different countries attended this summit in order to relieve some pain of the earth, but their financial interests and expansionist policies prevent them from thinking about the earth and future generations of human beings.
The extreme amount of greenhouse gases from fossil fuels, especially coal, and the excessive environmental pollution, created by a number of industrial facilities has put many ecosystems in danger of being destroyed, worrying everyone. More interestingly, developing countries that once considered developed countries to be the cause of environmental disaster, stand in the position of the accused today and developed countries are condemning these countries for excessive production of greenhouse gases.
In fact, the dispute between the two groups, developing and developed, is over issues that are more like a kind of ridiculous show to entertain people. The group that accused the other group of damaging the environment and the earth until yesterday, now stands in the position of the accused, and in fact, the issue of protecting the environment and saving the earth from huge amount of pollution has fallen into a vicious circle that has no destination but just the suppression for humanity.
Now the question that arises is that how is this topic related to the human rights?
Human rights are defined as follows:
The most basic and fundamental rights that every human being enjoys inherently and solely because of being human are called human rights.
Human rights include features such as universality, non-discrimination, egalitarianism, inalienability, etc. For example, the right to life is a right that exists for all human beings and the right to life has all the above characteristics.
Let’s return to the Glasgow Summit, where it seems that the only thing the world leaders can agree on is the abolition of the right to life for humanity. The group of developed countries is trying to slow down the growth of developing countries by condemning them in the environmental debates, so that their major economic interests are not jeopardized. On the other hand, developing countries, whether they like it or not, will produce very large amounts of greenhouse gases for their expansionist policies. Therefore, in order to maintain their progress, they condemn the developed countries for wasting land resources and disregarding the rights of other countries.
However, the most important point is that not only there is no end to this fight, rather because of the continuation of this behavior, we will soon face an uninhabitable land in which the most basic, fundamental and important right of human rights is not observed in it and that is the right to life.
