What #lies you will be fed over next few days when it comes to #Aarey

#Influencers telling you how the car-shed in Aarey is not damaging ecology of a leopard🐆 habitat.

#Kanjurmarg, is not feasible because of litigation when truth is there actually was a proposal to save it.
How previous projects inside #AareyForest automatically allows construction of a massive #MetroCarShed in eco-sensitive area. Because the best way to move forward is to repeat the past.

Everyone fighting to save Aarey are rich people who never travel in local trains.

#lies
There will be massive cost escalation if car shed is shifted & moved to #Kanjurmarg plot where a car-shed is planned anyway for another line.

Truth is, costs may rise but #Mumbai can afford few thousand crores to save a crucial green lung & leopard 🐆 habitat.

Global evidence demonstrates clear causal links b/w heatwave intensity & #ClimateChange tinyurl.com/2p9ftrky

As per @rocksea, data for 70 years shows that “the number of heatwaves is directly in response to #GlobalWarming.”

Dear #Mumbai:Is this ur 11 year gift to me: acute bronchitis & loads of meds?The doc looked apologetic while checking out my nearly wheezing state. It all started with the big #Deonar dumpyard fire of 2016, followed by3more huge fires (apparently manmade)in 3 weeks 😡#AirQuality Image
I’d hardly coughed b4 that, now I dread December-1 of my favourite months.When #Gulzar wrote “seene mein jalan, ankhon mein toofan sa kyon hai, is shahar mein har shaqs pareshaan sa kyon hai...”did he predict my condition&of several thousand #Mumbaikars just wanting to breathe.
We don’t even know what fresh air is anymore!This #MaximumCity rejected #CharlesCorrea as he planned for a city of hope and love, in turn he also left it to deal with its own greed 😱#SaveAareyForest #Letusbreathe #AirPollution #ClimateJustice #cleanenergy #ActOnClimate @Nitika_A
