• Regulate PUC centres in my city: Sh. Kahan Singh Pannu
    Picture this. You’re stuck at a signal in an autorickshaw with your daughter. An old, highly polluting car pulls over next to you. At that moment, you quickly cover your daughter’s nose. And under your breath, you curse the driver and wonder why the car is still running. And then you think out loud, “How did this car clear the pollution test?” Yes, let’s talk about a problem that we see quite often in our cities: shoddy pollution under check (PUC) centres. I’m sure most of you -- vehicle owners -- like me have visited such a centre at least once. Our vehicles have been certified to be non-polluting or minimal polluting without following a proper process. Sometimes turning a blind eye is easier. Yes, most of us are sometimes guilty for not speaking out. “Fake certificate? It’s fine. My vehicle isn’t polluting anyway!” But this is where the problem lies. We need to ensure that due process is followed, even if we are clean. And hence we now need to take responsibility. Whenever we come across a fraudulent PUC centre, ask them to follow due diligence. At the same time, let’s ask our state pollution control board to strictly regulate these centres. Our hope is to ensure that highly polluting vehicles do not run on our street and endanger our children’s lives. But this is possible only when you take that first step. http://indianexpress.com/article/india/epca-report-on-capitals-pucs-data-from-puc-system-is-virtually-unusable-4654668/ http://www.newindianexpress.com/cities/hyderabad/2017/may/07/did-you-know-your-vehicles-puc-certificate-is-bogus-1602049.html https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/gurgaon/3-mobile-puc-centres-issue-fake-clearances/articleshow/57009955.cms http://www.hindustantimes.com/delhi-news/vehicular-pollution-check-continues-to-be-sham-even-as-delhi-chokes-on-foul-air/story-usQ505pNJsmo40cLYEFNLP.html https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/chandigarh/ppcb-teams-find-100-vehicular-pollution-check-centres-violating-norms/articleshow/60008030.cms

  • Arki has Right to Clean Air: Move the residents of 15 villages to a pollution-free zone
    Air pollution is one of the biggest killers in India, and the people of the villages in Arki constituency are living this nightmare everyday. They’ve been reported saying that they’ve developed breathing and respiratory diseases due to this constant exposure to polluted air. But the Himachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly Elections on November 9 is giving them some hope -- hope that the government will listen to them. Virbhadra Singh, the sitting chief minister, is going to contest elections from Arki constituency. These villages fall under this constituency. It is predicted that BJP is going to have a big win in Himachal Pradesh, and that’s why Virbhadra Singh will make sure that he pulls all stops to not let that happen. Hundreds of residents are threatening to boycott the elections if their demand for clean air is not met. They will submit a memorandum to the election commission regarding their decision to boycott the November 9 election. This is not something that either candidate would want, especially Virbhadra Singh. We all know during elections, politicians make plenty of promises. Let’s use our collective power and make sure that the candidates of Arki make a promise to the people of their constituency. We also know that they might back down on their promise after the elections, but we will remind them time and again until Arki has clean air. Sign this petition and ask the government to prioritize this issue of pollution. If we win this campaign, this will inspire hundreds and thousands of other villages across the country that have been fighting big corporations for their basic right of a clean environment. During election, every politician is looking for a victory. But in the end it truly is a victory or a defeat for the people. For years, Arki has been fighting for clean air -- it is high time now that we make their voices heard. http://www.hindustantimes.com/punjab/himachal-polls-2017-in-cm-virbhadra-singh-s-battlefield-15-villages-threaten-to-boycott-polls/story-9tgb5eIraUJANoMu4rSH2I.html https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/videos/news/will-boycott-polls-if-not-shifted-warn-solans-arki-constituency-villagers/videoshow/61220460.cms http://www.business-standard.com/article/news-ani/virbhadra-singh-s-constituency-s-village-residents-may-boycott-himachal-polls-117102500174_1.html

  • I want India to be driven by the Sun!
    India has an electric future! In less than 20 years, all two-wheelers, cars, taxis, rickshaws, buses and trains will run on electricity. This will be revolutionary. It will save the country billions of dollars on oil imports and can help reduce air pollution. But transport running on electricity that comes from dirty power plants is not the solution. Power plants will burn more fossil fuels and make our air more toxic. The Indian Government must look towards pure and abundant sources like the sun and the wind to power the electric revolution. Currently 20% of our energy is from clean and renewable sources. To clean up our air for a healthy future and to save our planet, India must commit to 100% renewable energy to power electric transportation! Let’s tell our government that Indians are ready to embrace renewable energy and safeguard our children’s future. Our voices have been heard, let’s make sure they are heard again!
