Spending holidays in educating people on Climate Change

I was on my two weeks long holidays from office, however I decided not to spend my free days in traveling around or resting at home. My choice was to go in field, meet local farmers, communities and NGOs professionals to spread the word on Climate Change. Perhaps the best choice I could made in sharing information on science of climate change, a global perspective and political landscape which local communities in Pakistan are often unaware of. In every that second of my voluntary effort, I felt a sense of satisfaction whenever I realized I was able to make people aware on the information which they didn't know before such as increased concentration of greenhouses gases in atmosphere more than the natural requirement, future risks of water scarcity in Pakistan, difference among developed and developing countries in international debate and up to date science of climate change, which local people rarely able to know.
