EARTH HAS HIGHEST LEVELS OF PLANET WARMING CARBON DIOXIDE IN ITS ATMOSPHERE SINCE RECORDS BEGAN
To the most polluted our planet has ever been. Scientists in the United States have detected the highest levels of planet-warming carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere since records began, sounding the new alarm over the relentless rise of man-made greenhouse gas emissions.
It was also the first time on record that the observatory measured a daily baseline above 415 ppm.
The last time Earth’s atmosphere contained this much CO2 was more than three million years ago when global sea levels were several metres higher and parts of Antarctica were blanketed in a forest.
WHAT THE BHAKT IS GOING ON?
Speaking of gas and pollutants, let us head to what’s going on in the Indian elections. Wasn’t a good day to be a bhakt for sure. Firstly Kamal Hassan started with saying the truth that the first terrorist of free India was a Hindu. Secondly, in Rajasthan, the government there decided to introduce changes in the biography of RSS’ hero Veer Savarkar taught in schools, saying the existing version served the political interests of the previous BJP government and the RSS. But what really did leave them astounded was perhaps the evidence that PM’s interview was blatantly scripted.
HIS TONGUE SHOULD BE CHOPPED OFF’: BJP, ALLIES RAGE OVER KAMAL HAASAN’S ‘GODSE INDIA’S FIRST HINDU TERRORIST’ REMARK
So first lets head to what was the reaction to Kamal Hassan’s statement about Godse being the first Indian terrorist.
KT Rajendra Balaji, a leader of BJP’s Tamil Nadu ally AIADMK, on Monday said that Kamal Haasan’s tongue should be chopped off for his remarks on Hindu terror. The leader added that the comments were to gain minority votes. The BJP also filed a complaint with the EC against Haasan for his remarks, saying they were made at a village in Aravakurichi, which was a “thickly-populated” Muslim area. Nirmala Sitharaman jumped in defence, because you know she is the defence minister saying, that he (Kamal) does not understand the difference between an assassin and a terrorist.
BJP POLLING AGENT SEEN ON VIDEO ‘INFLUENCING’ VOTERS INSIDE FARIDABAD BOOTH, ARRESTED
And while we are on Kamal, I am pretty sure the party, not the man understands how to continue on the path laid out by the great assassin, especially when it comes to voting. A polling agent of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was arrested by Palwal Police after a video of him allegedly trying to influence voters at a polling booth in Faridabad went viral on social media. An FIR has been registered against the accused, identified as Giriraj Singh. He was produced in court and is now out on bail.
In his complaint regarding the matter, on the basis of which the FIR has been registered, the Presiding Officer, Amit Atri, states that the accused, “with the excuse of helping voters,” pressed the button meant to cast votes three times.
CAMERA BETRAYS PM, GIVES PROOF OF MODI INTERVIEW BEING SCRIPTED
The Prime Minister, who had earlier been called out for his comment that he had urged the Balakot airstrike not be put off because of bad weather as “clouds can help Indian fighter planes escape the radar” and then suggesting that he used a digital camera and e-mail in the 1980s, was caught in a camera close-up that appeared to show him referring to a scripted question-and-answer sheet.
A viral Twitter post by journalist Pratik Sinha, founder of fact-checking website AltNews, laid out the sequence of events.
At the end of the interview with television channel News Nation, the Prime Minister is asked about his poetry and if he has managed to write a poem in the middle of a busy election season. In response, he asks for his personal files and extracts a sheaf of papers in order to read out some poems. As he looks through them, the camera zooms in to show what appears to be a scripted question-and-answer set that matches, nearly word for word, the question asked by one of the two journalists conducting the interview.
I honestly wasn’t as shocked of it being fibbed, there is enough evidence to point towards that but that no one knew till now that the PM is a bard as well. As well, besides being a scientist, also space scientist, climate expert, historian & defence expert and a husband. No? okay not the last one and that is what Mayawati put out yesterday.
MAYAWATI ACCUSES MODI OF ‘ABANDONING’ WIFE FOR ‘POLITICAL SELFISHNESS’
Mayawati broke a political taboo on Monday to make a rare reference to Narendra Modi’s “desertion of his innocent wife”, arguing the Prime Minister could not be expected “to respect women”.
“Married BJP women feel afraid when they see their husbands go near the Prime Minister,” the Bahujan Samaj Party president told a media conference in Lucknow. “They fear their husbands might desert them under Modi’s influence.
Modi officially acknowledged his wife for the first time before the 2014 general election, naming her in his nomination papers after the poll panel banned candidates from leaving any column blank.
ADANI DEAL WITH GENOCIDE ACCUSED MYANMAR MILITARY-LINKED COMPANY RAISES HUMAN RIGHTS ALARM
And since we are on Modi, the two business names that frequently get associated with him are Ambani and Adani. Out of these two ones at least favours the company of genocidal generals, whether it be in Gujarat or Myanmar.
The Adani Group has signed a US$290m commercial deal with a holding company controlled by the Myanmar armed forces, who have been accused by UN investigators of committing genocide and crimes against humanity.
TRUMP AND XI TO MEET AFTER DEFIANT CHINA HITS U.S. WITH NEW TARIFFS.
Meanwhile, U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday he would meet Chinese President Xi Jinping next month as the trade war between the world’s two largest economies intensified, sending shivers through global markets. President Donald Trump said on Monday he was optimistic about resolving the U.S. trade dispute with China. I have a feeling it’s going to be very successful,” Trump said.
ISRAEL ARRESTS MAN OVER GOLAN HEIGHTS MASS VULTURE POISONING
And from Trump, we head to its new found home – Israel. Police in Israel has arrested a man suspected of poisoning nearly half of the rare vulture population in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
Local media reports stated that the suspect was accused of spreading poison over the carcass of a cow to kill predators.
MAN MAKES DEEPEST-EVER DIVE IN MARIANA TRENCH AND DISCOVERS … PLASTIC
And that is pretty much all we have for you. Anywhere you go, within or outside the planet, humans are known to pollute everything. We started today’s auditorial with the historical achievement of pushing earth to dangerous levels of CO2, so don’t be surprised what does a diver who was trying to break the record for sea diving find on the floor of the sea – plastic waste. Victor Vescovo descended nearly 11km (seven miles) to the deepest place in the ocean – the Pacific Ocean’s Mariana Trench.
He spent four hours exploring the bottom of the trench in his submersible, built to withstand the immense pressure of the deep.
He found sea creatures, but also found a plastic bag and sweet wrappers.
Plastic waste has reached epidemic proportions with an estimated 100m tonne of it now found in the world’s oceans, according to the United Nations.
So please, say no to plastic and get more agitated not with the heat that’s around us but stupidity about us that is making us ignore a real threat to humanity – human ignorance and climate change. Until tomorrow, stay conscious, stay hydrated healthy, productive and helpful. For today, goodbye from takeapart.in
