Planet earth
Tukai Lagonilakeba
Namaka, Nadi
Our Prime Minister’s consistent and persistent desire for our bigger boys in the world to cut down on their humongous carbon emissions from their highly industrious nations of the greedy, has now finally got their attention.
The COP21 meet in Paris will finally get all our world leaders to collectively admit that climate change is a real threat in our face and everyday life.
It is no longer an issue we can all just talk about, but requires real action from everybody on this planet. It is a reality.
God had given us human beings a beautiful unmatched biodiversity and a world full of life for mankind to protect, respect and to have dominion over, but who are the culprits and the victims in all this?
There is hope for smaller island nations which are all collectively standing tall in Paris to presenting their unique experience and cases to convince the world. Yes, they are listening and they have pledged monies to the billions for this important fight for our survival.
Ratu Voreqe Bainimarama, Fiji and other smaller Island states have created an impact in the world front and they have registered an important point. It is a record unmatched.
No country should be left behind in this fight. We are all responsible to its upkeep and maintenance and we owe it to ourselves for the sake of our future generations.
This world never did belong to us humans in the first place. There is a maker to which we will have to answer to for its abuse and destruction, believe it or not.
Through our PM, Fiji has created an impact again and a very positive one, vinaka vakalevu Mr Bainimarama for your perseverance and commitment to a worthy cause for the sake of all humans the world over.
In my opinion, there are two immediate man-made terrorist threats we are faced with. It is climate change and ISIS, they both require the immediate attention and collective collaborative actions of our world leaders in its eradication.
The introduction of our National Environmental Levy in our 2016 National Budget is a positive step and contribution from a small island nation like Fiji towards the fight against climate change.
For the first time now, our very existence is under threat like never before and our planet Earth is at our peril and mercy. Let’s get it on.

Poor bus service
Stephen Chandra
Davuilevu Housing
Can anybody kindly explain through this column, why only one bus company is servicing the Suva-Davuilevu Housing route?
I have been living there for five years and this problem of bus service is getting worse.
Buses are overloaded and running at intervals of 20-40 minutes in the morning.
They should run every 10 minutes with a very large work and schooling population in this area.
Also in the afternoon, passengers catching bus from Nabua onwards have to stand for 30 minutes all the way home.
Something is not right here.
Can the authorities concerned help in this and allow another bus company to also service this area that tired workers after a hard working day, can get into a bus and travel with comfort.

PSV legal age
Jason Verma JP
Wailoku
An article in the print media dated (Dec 1) caught my eye when I read about Niraj Singh’s story, who is 20, a legal age for PSV or did I read it wrong.
If it’s legal, then why the public is not informed?
I could take my nephew for a PSV licence.

Work and exchange rate
Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa
Delta, BC, Canada
We Fijians will accept any offer of work overseas because there is not enough jobs in Fiji for everyone.
We also need to consider the exchange rate, so that when we earn $100 in PNG, Australia, New Zealand, Canada or the USA, we know how much it is worth back at home.
From the WESTPAC’s online exchange rate, it reveals that $100 PGK is worth FJ$66.92, US is FJ$209.91, Canadian is FJ$157.60, Australian is FJ$153.95 and New Zealand is FJ$139.74.
The PNG Kina is weaker than the Fijian dollar while the USA dollar is doubled in Fiji.
We Fijians can do any type of work thrown at us, but we need to know the exchange rates, so that we achieve our goals after all our hard work and sweat.
