President Mahinda Rajapaksa said today, that the real war criminals are the countries that contribute to global warming.“All plants and animal species could be wiped out by global warming. Therefore,  the real war criminals and human rights violators are such countries, which contribute to the rise in global warming" he said.

"The western nations have become the greatest  violators of these rules,” the President said addressing an event to observe Earth Hour today in Kandy, the President’s office said.

According to statistics, United States is the number one among large nations contributing to global warming and puilluting the environment having refused to sign the Kyoto protocol. The USA  contributes 25% of emissions that are harmful to the enviorenment, the President said.

    Yes Sir. USA and India are worst countries.

    Hodiya Monday, 02 April 2012 04:21 AM

    USA and Western countries are the ones more concerened about Global Warming, what do we do about it? Have we found a way to re cycle waste, or have we even done away with polythene and plastic??? What about the colour of the Beira lake which flows right beside the house of the so called king??? Before blaming others we need to do our part. Are we?????

    Dear President, Please try to emit green house gases and pollutants, then we can see country is developing.

    Fusion Monday, 02 April 2012 05:32 AM

    Your excellency, US is no longer No 1 in total emissions. China surpassed the US in 2006 (2nd US, 3rd EU ). In terms of emission per person 1st Saudi Arabia, 2nd US, 3rd Australia.

    Luckily that Sri Lanka is so small. If it has the size of America, it would be contributing more than 50% from all.

    SL boasts of a 'green' environment, but every day one sees/smells belching buses, polluted & filthy canals devoid of life, rivers polluted by industrial waste emptied into, virgin forests being felled and natural habitats being ruined for commercial (illegal?) activities. For the size of the island, we are proportionately in danger of losing our very heritage.

    John Monday, 02 April 2012 05:19 PM

    .....or protect sucking baby elephants snatched away from their mothers....!

    Chandike UAE Monday, 02 April 2012 08:06 AM

    It is sad to hear President of the country can not differentiate War crimes and Global warming.

    Raj Monday, 02 April 2012 08:15 AM

    Actually China has overtaken USA being the largest polluter. Does this mean China are the real war criminals

    Gamaya Monday, 02 April 2012 12:21 AM

    the largest contribution we can make is to stop the large scale illicit felling of trees now taking place in sri lanka.
