  1. Howdy, Modi! says:

    The scenarios in Narendra Modi’s tech India! He refuses to institute constraints that could help to lower the effects of the climate change. Instead, he buys discounted oil from Putin, turning a blind eye to Ukraine massacres by Russians, and encourages the car culture. This together with the massive population in India, which produces large carbon foot prints, results in scenarios like this-a typical sight in third world India!
    Now tomato per Kg will cost 100 Rupees, which only Sudha Murthy can afford. Jai Hind!!

    We need to recognize who our frinds are! and Western countries and EU have proven to be an epitome of double standards when it comes to the interest of third world countries
    As Jaishankar ponted out which many critics were shocked to face the truth, some EU nations imported oil Russia while cricizing India. What imports in one month, Some EU nations import in one afternoon!
    Also, if they had not exported all the manufacturing industry to Chnia, Taiwan, India, and other thirds world nations, the carbon footprint of these nations would be much better! Yes, it created a lot of jobs but the enforcement on envirionment standards was not there as US wanted the cheap goods! Now they are preaching! This is a classic example of “run with the hare and hunt with the hounds”
    And the majority of environmentlists are so phoney, pure intellectual prostitutes with no ethics, they have a selective vision on what they want to see and what they dont!
    Finally, This was an interesting observation
