With the controversial limits on lighting firecrackers, not sure if Diwali – Deepavali would be a happy one. After all firecrackers are one of the biggest things to look forward to… Still we wish all a VERY HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS DIWALI – DEEPAVALI.
But if the Supreme Court really wants to help reduce pollution, then the biggest contributor to pollution world over is the PRODUCTION OF BEEF – “animal livestock farming produces 18% of the world’s greenhouse gases, which as a comparison is more than the pollution from ALL CARS and PLANES TOGETHER. And even among all meat, “BEEF is the absolute worst. Beef production uses 28 times more land and 11 times more water than the production of pork or chicken.” ACs are also big producer of greenhouse gas pollution.
SO LET US BAN BEEF, ACs & MANY OTHER THINGS BEFORE WE BAN DIWALI FIRECRACKERS…
HAPPY DIWALI – DEEPAVALI !
