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.

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.

#HeatWaves are soon to become the new normal for #Mumbai.

#HeatStress happens when the body heats up excessively leading to dehydration, dizziness, fatigue, etc.
#HeatWaves in #Mumbai has led to an uptick in:
heat-related illnesses & deaths
power outages
crop failure
drinking water shortages
risk to wildlife
Global evidence demonstrates clear causal links b/w heatwave intensity & #ClimateChange

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
