We hope she was just joking here.

Zartaj Gul, Minister for Climate Change

The Minister of Climate Change, Zartaj Gul Wazir’s explanation for why climate change occurs will leave you scratching your head.

Recently, a reporter asked the Minister how there’s been a pleasant change in the weather, and her ‘explanation’ just became a viral story in itself.

Watch how she responded:

Anyone who lives in the tropics knows well that chilly winds and rains are quite the norm.

When a reporter clarified that, Zartaj Gul Wazir said that the rains that her area was receiving was due to the government ‘pure’ character. We really hope she made that remark in jest.

Ms. Gul then went on to explain her remarks. She said that she once read a hadith that when ‘pious rulers’ come into power, a country is blessed with rainfall.

Twitter Has a Field Day Over Zartaj Gul’s Remarks

While having a Ministry of Climate Change is a positive development, the person in charge of it needs to do better.

Pakistani Twitterati obviously had a laugh about it.

People are already comparing her to Trump, who also takes climate change pretty lightly.

And then there’s this:

The puns and references just keep coming in.

Perhaps a replacement is in order?

Last but not the least:

 

We feel your pain sister…

We certainly do hope that the good Minister wasn’t serious here. Given Prime Minister Imran Khan’s focus on securing our environment, he needs qualified people at helm. After all, its not every day that a nation drags its arch-rival to the United Nations over destroying a few trees.
