Are we doing something?

Unfortunately not if you are referring to 'Pakistanis'. But the world has taken significant steps forward as the world leadersreached a deal for the first time in world's history after they met in Paris recently.Various leaders from around the world have made pledges in Paris that could see humans showing more responsibility for the earth and its climate. Here are the key elements of this accord.
  • Countries will take measures to keep the global temperature below 2.0C.
  • The emissions should stay as low as possible, making sure that greenhouse gases never go beyond the level that trees, soul and oceans can absorb naturally.
  • Efforts should bereviewed made by each country to cut on emissions every 4 years.
  • Rich countries should help the poor countries by giving them "climate finance" so that they can work on renewable energy resources.
What's in and what has been left out?The goal of preventing what scientists regard as dangerous and irreversible levels of climate change - judged to be reached at around 2C of warming above pre-industrial times - is central to the agreement.The world is already nearly halfway there at almost 1C and many countries argued for a tougher target of 1.5C - including leaders of low-lying countries that face unsustainable sea levels rises in a warming world.[caption id="attachment_163" align="aligncenter" width="2375"]Source: Source:[/caption]The desire for a more ambitious goal has been kept in the agreement - with the promise to "endeavour to limit" global temperatures even more, to 1.5C.Dr Bill Hare, CEO of Climate Analytics, says the objective is "remarkable"."It is a victory for the most vulnerable countries, the small islands, the least developed countries and all those with the most to lose, who came to Paris and said they didn't want sympathy, they wanted action."Meanwhile, for the first time, the accord lays out a longer-term plan for reaching a peak in greenhouse emissions "as soon as possible" and achieving a balance between output of man-made greenhouse gases and absorption - by forests or the oceans - "by the second half of this century"."If agreed and implemented, this means bringing down greenhouse-gas emissions to net zero within a few decades. It is in line with the scientific evidence we presented," says John Schellnhuber, Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.Some have described the deal as "woolly" because some of the targets were scaled down during the negotiations."The Paris Agreement is only one step on a long road, and there are parts of it that frustrate and disappoint me, but it is progress," says Greenpeace International executive director Kumi Naidoo."This deal alone won't dig us out the hole we're in, but it makes the sides less steep."

What about money?

Money has been a sticking point throughout the negotiations.Developing countries say they need financial and technological help to leapfrog fossil fuels and move straight to renewables.Currently they have been promised US $100bn (67bn) a year by 2020 - not as much as many countries would like.


The agreement requires rich nations to maintain a $100bn a year funding pledge beyond 2020, and to use that figure as a "floor" for further support agreed by 2025.The deal says wealthy countries should continue to provide financial support for poor nations to cope with climate change and encourages other countries to join in on a voluntary basis.Dr Ilan Kelman of UCL, London, says the lack of time scales are "worrying"."The starting point of $100bn per year is helpful, but remains under 8% of worldwide declared military spending each year."

What happens next?

Only elements of the Paris pact will be legally binding.moonsoonThe national pledges by countries to cut emissions are voluntary, and arguments over when to revisit the pledges - with the aim of taking tougher action - have been a stumbling block in the talks.The pact promises to make an assessment of progress in 2018, with further reviews every five years.As analysts point out, Paris is only the beginning of a shift towards a low-carbon world, and there is much more to do."Paris is just the starting gun for the race towards a low-carbon future," says WWF-UK Chief Executive David Nussbaum.Prof John Shepherd of the National Oceanography Centre, University of Southampton, says the agreement includes some welcome aspirations but few people realise how difficult it will be to achieve the goals."Since the only mechanism remains voluntary national caps on emissions, without even any guidance on how stringent those caps would need to be, it is hard to be optimistic that these goals are likely to be achieved."Article

The history of Pakistani passport depicts the continuous clash since its existence within the country itself.The change in its contents and cover over the past years reflect Pakistan as a community and a nation.Pakistan came into being on 14th August 1947 with the untiring efforts of Muhammad Ali Jinnah who was a great lawyer and Muslim modernist.It was formed on the basis of Islam as a state where Muslim culture could dominate. However, the state itself was not involved in the affairs of religion and declared it as a private matter for every individual. Jinnah died after a year Pakistan was created and since then,there is a tussle over the countrys ideological composition.The liberal and conservative are two groups in Pakistan who have always been of different views about thecomposition of Pakistan.Liberals are of the view that Jinnah proposed an idea of establishing an entirely modernistic state of Islam in the form of Pakistan. Whereas,conservatives believe that Jinnah envisioned Pakistan as a completely Islamic state for the Muslim Ummah.This battle on differences in views has been a cause of the internal fight and increased when it came in the corridors of the state. Its path can be traced from beginning till now.

In 1947-Pakistani Passport

pakistans first passportThe first Passport which was issued in late 1947 was mainly beige is its color having a small portion of green color.Pakistan Passport was written on its cover in three languages i.e. English, Bengali, and Urdu.There were two flags on it which symbolizing the two wings present in Pakistan at that time, namely, eastern wing and western wing.The details of passport holder were given the passport which included holders name, address, profession, photo and marital status.During that time, Pakistanis could get visas-on-arrival in any country and it was not necessary to have a pre-arrival-visa if they wished to visit any country.

In 1954

Pakistani passport in 1954Passport changed its look in 1954, having more green color than the beige as compared to the previous passport. The other changing was that the name of holder appeared on the cover along with the two flags.As there were tensions between East Pakistan which had the majority of Bengalis and West Pakistan which had ethnic diversity. So, both these wings were declared as different provinces. Therefore, the passports of both these provinces were also a bit different. The Bengali dominated province had PakistaniPassport written on its cover in Bengali and English. On the other hand, West Pakistan had Pakistani Passport written in Urdu and English. Other contents were same as that of the previous version of the passport.

General Ayub also supported Mirza in his stance and became president of Pakistan in 1959. Name of Pakistan changed to the Republic of Pakistan by Ayub.In 1960, passport changed again and was light green in color. This color was a symbol of moderateIslamic view. The contents inside the passport were same but the flags were removed and Pakistan Passport was written in English and Urdu only.On-arrival-visas were given to Pakistanis from all the countries except the Soviet Union, East European communist countries, and Israel.

However, this was not added to the passport at that time. The inside contents of passport changed a bit and a section to note the color of holders eyes was added along with other details.Pakistanis were still able to enjoy on-arrival-visas from most of the countries. But in 1970, U.S stopped giving on-arrival-visas. At the same time, the Soviet Union and communist countries of eastern Europe relaxed their policies on visas to some extent.In 1979, the inside contents were same as the previous version of 1970 but the only change was that the Urdu text shifted on top of the English one at the passport cover.On-arrival-visas were still given offered most countries except the communists (other than China) and the U.S. In 1978 communist revolution took place in Afghanistan and the Soviet invaded in 1979.
