"Corruption & mismanagement at the highest levels of the Iranian regime have produced years of environmental exploitation & degradation throughout the country."

Wildfires that began in five of #Iran's provinces last week have once again displayed the regime’s inefficiency in handling natural disasters.

Today as we mark world environment day 2020, I believe we must have realised what many voices have said in the past few years- how vulnerable the human race is, and realising on how strong a reaction from nature can be. Covid, Cyclones, locust. (1/n)
What we also hopefully have noticed, is the things we missed out on, the things we forgot to notice, things we tried to destroy, in our fast paced lives that had no satisfaction as target. Greed had changed the definition of “development” for us. (2/n) #WorldEnvironmentDay2020
The world has never come to a stand still like this before, and yet we are so surprised and in awe of nature that is healing, absorbing and showing us its beauty. Birds chirping, clear skies, crisper twilights. Albeit for most of us, still on a phone screen (3/n)

आजचे वृक्षारोपण आत्मघातकी आणि पर्यावरणाला धोका निर्माण करणार्‍या झाडांचे आहे.😳 😳

खोटे वाटते??

अवश्य वाचा.. हा थ्रेड
#गुलमोहर : हे झाड मादागास्कर येथून भारतात आणले आहे. याची लालभडक फुले कुणालाही आकर्षित करून घेणारी असली, तरी ती सुगंधी नाहीत. पूजा किंवा पुष्पहार यांच्या उपयोगाची नाहीत. या झाडाचे आयुष्यही १० ते १५ वर्षांपेक्षा अधिक नसल्यामुळे दूरगामी कोणताच लाभ यात मिळत नाही. #fridaymorning
#निलगिरी : हे झाड ऑस्ट्रेलियातून १९५२ या वर्षी आयात केलेल्या गव्हासह आलेले आहे. मूळ निलगिरी झाडांच्या पानांचा जो सुगंध डोकेदुखी थांबवण्यासाठी वापरला जातो, तसा या झाडात नसून हे झाड जमिनीतून इतर झाडांच्या १५ टक्क्यांहून अधिक पाणी स्वत:कडे ओढून घेते. #FridayMotivation

Participated in Workshop on ‘Saving Biodiversity through Effective Waste Management’ event on the occasion of #WorldEnvironmentDay2020 organised by my Ministry. ImageImage
The three key advisories to States/ ULBs on Material Recovery Facilities for Municipal Solid Waste, Landfill Reclamation and Consultative Document on On-site & Off- site Sewage Management Practices were released in the Workshop. ImageImageImage
But for 48 cities in WB, rest of urban areas are ODF now. Scientific processing of solid waste, which was mere 18% in 2014, has more than tripled & is now 65%. However, there is still a long way to go. ImageImage

#இந்தியாவில் வருடத்தின் எல்லாநாட்களும் #நீலவானத்தை நான் பார்க்க வேண்டும். சுத்தமான காற்றை சுவாசிக்க கொள்ளை நோயால் உருவான ஒரு சமூக இடர் தேவையில்லை. AQ1 60 ஒவ்வொரு நாளும் தேவை. சுத்தமான காற்று எல்லோருக்கும். #SaalBhar60 #WorldEnvironmentDay Image

Here's a throwback at one of the best sets by the greatest Stand Up artist to have ever existed; George Carlin. No one could have addressed it better than him.
We’re so self-important. Everybody’s going to save something now. “Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save those snails.” And the greatest arrogance of all: save the planet. Save the planet, we don’t even know how to take care of ourselves yet.
I’m tired of this shit. I’m tired of f-ing Earth Day. I’m tired of these self-righteous environmentalists, these white, bourgeois liberals who think the only thing wrong with this country is that there aren’t enough bicycle paths. People trying to make the world safe for Volvos.
