Climate change rains on Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka’s weather patterns are changing and this fact was made evident on January 13, this year when temperatures dropped dramatically country wide. Colombo’s temperature went down to 18.8 degrees Celsius, the lowest recorded in 61 years.
The recent floods have been catastrophic and are the worst the country has ever faced. Yet our authorities are least bothered. Even officials at the Climate Change Secretariat are not keen when it comes to climate change adaptation or mitigation, but as usual, are keen to attend overseas trips and in turn do nothing.
