How very sad to see the massive death count from Covid in India which I believe currently stands at 200,000 and is still rising.
Obviously with a massive population so closely packed into some of their cities it seems inevitable that these figures will continue to rise.
Whilst not normally a fan of Extinction Rebellion and all these other anti pollution groups I must say, if they wish to go and protest somewhere I suggest they might visit India, it shouldn’t be hard to find as I imagine one could see the smoke from all the thousands of funeral pyres from space.
What seems to be making matters worse is that they seem to be cutting down vast quantities of trees to make these fires, when surely they should be left standing to absorb all the CO2, which is somewhat of a catch twenty two situation.
Perhaps it might be better to adopt the Native American Indian practice of taking one’s deceased relative to the top of a mountain and leaving them for the birds to devour, I think this may be less polluting although I have no idea how much pollution one creates when dragging a body miles to the top of a mountain, I shall leave this to the climate experts to work out.
