Target: Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi
Goal: Enact laws to lower greenhouse gas emissions in India
After the United States and China made commitments to lower the amount of greenhouse gases from their respected countries, environmentalists and scientists are wondering if India will do the same. The country is one of the biggest producers of greenhouse gases and it is enacting a toll upon its environment and its people. India needs to realize that the health of the planet is interconnected and take appropriate measures to protect the environment. Implore Prime Minister Narendra Modi to craft laws that will lower the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by the country.
The two most notorious greenhouse gases are methane and carbon dioxide, both of which are emitted through fracking, mining, and the use of vehicles and factories. These chemicals trap heat in the atmosphere, causing drastic changes in the Earth’s climate. It has brought droughts, hurricanes, flooding, and massive blizzards to various parts of the planet where such events are rare. If humans can limit the amount of greenhouse gases being emitted into the atmosphere, we can keep our planet’s ecosystem balanced and healthy.
Both China and India have a history of refusing to change anything in their laws regarding greenhouse gas emissions, but the deal with the United States and China has made experts pause. If China could make such groundbreaking changes, would India soon follow? The country’s new prime minister, Narendra Modi, has acknowledged that India has an enormous pollution problem, and his administration recently announced a new emissions plan for power plants.
For the planet to return to its normal state, all nations around the world have to work toward lowering greenhouse gases. Sign this petition and urge Prime Minister Narendra Modi to do everything in his power to lower the emissions of carbon dioxide and methane in the Earth’s atmosphere.
Dear Prime Minister Narendra Modi,
Recently China made a commitment to lower its greenhouse gas emissions to stop climate change. Experts are now wondering if your country will do the same. India has become lax in this field, where many cities violate the national and international standard of gas emissions. This has resulted in many respiratory problems for Indian citizens and expensive medical bills. The burning of fossil fuels is costing the country, and China has realized that this is a problem.
I urge you to protect the interests of your economy, the health of your citizens, and the well-being of the planet. Your citizens cannot survive if they are unwell, and your country will crumble if there is too much air pollution. I implore you to craft laws limiting the amount of greenhouse gases in your country, and give incentives for power plants to seek renewable energy sources.
