Dr. Mangunjaya said that climate change greatly affects our daily lives and humanity as a whole.
He added that we had met a few days ago in Sharm El Sheikh city with thousands of people from 200 countries and talked about joint action to confront climate change. He pointed out that he wrote a book on climate change and has been working with Muslim scientists for years on the climate change file.
Senior Lecturer at School of Graduate Program Universitas Nasional explained that he mentioned in his book that many countries in the Middle East suffer from floods and snows, all of this because of climate change.
Dr. Mangunjaya pointed out that Indonesia witnessed a period of drought in 2015, at which time Muslims prayed the prayer for rain. It rained moments after the prayer.
He added that there are 7 fatwas related to the environment in Indonesia. Hundreds of imams are being trained to spread the message of preserving the environment.
