Quick notes: Heat wave, Manasarovar water...

  • 2000 heat-wave deaths: “The number of heat wave days may go up from about 5 to between 30 and 40 every year.” Night-time temperatures are rising too. (..experiencing this first hand lately..) Additionally, owing to the rising temperatures, UV rays emerging as a serious menace for people’s health. ...Not one Namo tweet on heat-wave toll!


  • Petition: Stop the Bottling of Mansarovar Lake water in Tibet


  • Ethical Eating: The Plants (and Animals) Are Watching Us


  • UPA-3: NDA’s environmental clearance record not significantly different from UPA’s (Swachh Bharat notwithstanding).
