Narendra Modi vs Greta | Modi an Environment Disaster ? | AKTK
By Micah Moen
So friends, in the treta (ancient) era, an infant bird is lecturing a vulture on how to lift a heavy object. This goes on for two hours, with all the technical details. After bearing this for two hours, suddenly An elephant cub comes in between them. The vulture lifts the elephant cub in its claws and flies away saying ‘hasta la vista’ to the infant bird. Something similar happens inside the UN when “Greta Thunberg”, A young woman has bragged and said that Narendra Modi only brags, instead of actually taking action about the environment. Brags will get us nowhere. But what’s the actual truth? What has Modi done for the environment? We are going to show you just that, in this video. Please keep watching AKTK. *Epic Intro Music* So friends, this youngster ‘Greta Thunberg’, has rasied slogans like ‘How dare you?’ regarding the extremely important issue of climate change. It’s a very important issue as it is connected to every single living being on the planet. Greta Thunberg has raised her voice over this extremely important issue of climate change which is quite commendable. However, besides this she has said something *interesting* about Narendra Modi, let’s listen! So friends, Greta tells PM Modi to not brag, but act instead. Making speeches doesn’t help anyone, working on issues is what matters. And if you don’t act, coming generations will not forgive you. But Greta’s statement seems nothing more than a misinformed statement to me, because PM Modi has taken a lot of actions concerning the environment. In the video, we will observe the things that Narendra Modi has done regarding climate change. To begin with, let’s talk about solar capacity. In 2014, India’s solar capacity was 2.6 GigaWatts. By 2019, this has risen to 30 GigaWatts. In the 2015 UN Summit, participating countries had made promises regarding the environment. India too, had promised that by 2030, 40% of our energy requirenments would be generated using pollution-free resources. This promise was expected to be honoured by 2030. However, according to a survey, it is estimated that India will fulfill it by 2022 itself. According to another survey done in India, it has been found that there is no need to create new coal plants for electricity because solar plants and solar farms are producing electricity costing 2.44 rs/unit and this cost of rs 2.44/unit, compared to just the previous year, is halved, and is already 24% cheaper than electricity produced using coal. Besides this, India has set its target for renewable energy at 450 GigaWatts. The previous target, as decided in the Paris summit was 175 GW. Meaning that India is far surpassing its own set targets and setting new targets for itself. Now bros let’s talk about Ujjwala scheme. As per the Ujjwala scheme, the people below poverty line are given free gas connections. From 2014 till date, around 10 crore (100 million) people have been given new gas connections among which, 8 crore (80 million) people have received it for free under Ujjwala scheme. Before 2014, in 60 years, around 13 crore (130 million) people had got gas connection and in the past 5 years, around 10 crore (100 million) new gas connections have been given, out of which, 8 crore(80 million) are for people below poverty line who used to use firewood for cooking. You can imagine how much pollution has been reduced with this. Amd even UN has praised India for this effort. Now let’s come to LED bulbs. These bulbs, which used to cost Rs. 350-400 till 2014, are now, suddenly as if by some magic, now cost around 50-70 Rs. Because of this, the common man has now started using these. Because of this, the governemt has, so far distributed around 36 crore (360 million) of these LED bulbs at subsidised rates. This has resulted in the saving of around 16000 crore (160,000 million) Rs. Per year this scheme has also resulted in saving of 47000 million KWh energy per year in India. This also results in preventing 4 crore Tonnes (40 Million Tonnes) of CO2 from going into the environment. Now let’s talk about Swachha Bharat Mission. Before 2014, only 38% of Indians had access to toilets. Today, 99.99% of the population has access to toilets. Stray incidents can be found anywhere, and very few people out of 1.3 Billion still do not have access to toilets. But this is a roaring success for the Modi government, and around 10 crore (100 million) toilets have been constructed in the last 5 years. Out of which, over 936 million are photographed and can be seen as proof on the website. As per the WHO, this has saved the lives of over 300,000 people. Now we come to Jal-Jeevan scheme. After forming government in 2019, the Modi administration has Formed an entire ministry dedicated to Water Power (Jal Shakti), which garned over 360000 crores (3600,000 million) Rs. Of investment. Whose objective is to revive the water bodies that have dried up, and provide clean water to the masses. Besides this, India has banned the use of single-use plastic Apart from this, we have started creating bio-fuel from human hair and agricultural stubble. We have already flown the maiden flight using biofuel, and soon we shall be no.1 in this as well. Besides this, around 40 Metro projects are already underway aiming to provide Metros in all Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities of the country. Along with with, 2030 has been targetted for Electric vehicles. While countries like Britain are working on the target of 2040. Besides, our roads are already being filled with waste plastic, This is the reason that the per capita CO2 emission of India is merely 1.6 kt, while that of the US is 16.7. This can give you an estimation of who is polluting the environment to what degree. One major factor for this is that 90% of Indians do not use ACs, while the remaining 10% use it only in limited amounts. Very few people use ACs for longer hours. Besides, the ‘bottled’ culture quite common in the west is minimal in India. The government is taking pre-emptive measures to reduce its spread already. Bottles made out of bamboos will soon be available in the market. BUT, BUT i forgot to mention the most important thing! We Indians clean our bums with water like civilised people, rather than using toilet paper this also helps save the environment to a great degree! So friends, you can observe yourself whether PM Modi has bragged, or made genuine efforts in saving the environment. Be it LED, Swachha Bharat Scheme, Ujjwala Scheme, or efforts for renewable energy like solar, the facts are quite clear. But still, we would like to say that Greta is raising her voice for a great cause, Whether sponsore or otherwise, voices should be raised over climate change. And these voices should be lauded by all. Has PM Modi worked for the environment, or not, do tell us in the comments. Also, do follow us on Twitter/FB/IG/Telegram and support us on Patreon!
