Dear Editor,

Thank you for allowing me to express my opinion once again. I wrote an email to you 4 years ago concerning smoking vehicles.

We need to set our priorities right, we need to take care of mama earth. Of course, we also need to take care of ourselves but we all know mama earth is not in good shape at the moment.

If a house is heating up and is about to get on fire, what would you do? Eat properly? Tidy up? Or rather run to take refuge somewhere safe?

There is no safer place than Earth. Earth is unique and life only exists on Earth.

Studies show that car pollution is one of the major causes of global warming.

Are we not realizing that mama earth is heating a little bit more each year?

It’s time we give a little chance for a better world to live in. The world is getting warmer affecting oceans, weather patterns, snow and ice, plants and animals, we are connected to these, it’s a chain reaction, a human habitat in danger.

In Port Vila, almost 3/4 of the population are pedestrians including students and workers. We need to look at smoking vehicle seriously and take initiatives, our contribution to our beautiful planet and health of everyone.

I am addressing this to the authorities concern. This issue needs to be taken into consideration, it could save about a million lives a year worldwide.

Thank you for your time and for taking this into careful thought.
