17 Mar The toi today carried a news that attributed the warmer days in Kerala to traditional causes like wetland and deforestation, which I deem as romantic and unscientific. Only dr Joseph sounded scientific. Santosh of I m d gave the stat. The real culprit is the co2 emission that continues unabated from our towns and villages in the country and Kerala. Burning refuse is sort of a pastime for the rich and poor alike. The broken waste management system encourages families and homes to burn, unknowingly the consequences of co2 released and what it does to climate along with the soot that goes up. Luck has it that African nations and india are the only trophy holders in respect of biomass burning cook the basic food. So sadly the toi wasted the ink space and English in absolving the root cause of higher temps..these days. The super God of cc is green house gases and the first place goes co2. Sad indeed is the stand standing away from the ultimate and immediate causes..
