Climate Change Will Impact Arab World

A recent meeting at the Organization of Islamic Conference indicated there might be a greater impact in global warming on nations that are part of the Islamic world. Ata al-Mannan Bakheet, said the arrival of global warming would result in an increase of poverty, hunger and environmental degradation which would result in societal disorganization. Many Islamic societies such as Bangladesh hang onto survival by a thread and any change in oceans could lead to flooding that would drive millions from their homes. The reality is that most Muslims inhabit nations that are not economically advanced and do not have oil as their major resource.

One doubts if wealthy Arab nations such as Saudi Arabia would come to the assistance of their fellow Muslims.
