Coal is a scam. We must stop the government from cutting down giant areas of forest in Central India to get the coal that lies beneath.

overview

Coal is a scam. We must stop the government from cutting down giant areas of forest in Central India to get the coal that lies beneath.

Here's what's at stake:
Tigers - 35% of the 1700 tigers left in the wild live in Central India.
Forest communities - Almost half of the forest dependent communities in the country depend on the forests of Central India for their way of life.
Environment - Cutting down forests and burning the coal that lies underneath will release large quantities of CO2 into the atmosphere, perpetuating destructive climate change.

If that isn't enough, a coal scam larger than the 2G scam is coming to light. A report by the CAG says that the Coal Ministry, then headed by the Prime Minister, allocated coal blocks at a throw-away price costing taxpayers Rs 1.86 lakh crores (an earlier leak of the report put the figure even higher at Rs. 10.67 lakh crores (212 billion US dollars.))

Ask the PM to stop all new coal allocations and forest clearances until this scam has been investigated and there is a clear demarcation of areas that shouldn't be mined.
you have the power to create change.

Greed seems to rule over good. Let's not let this happen in India. We must not let them destroy the habitat of the largest population of an endangered species. The forest is not only for the tigers but also for its inhabitants. Protect, not destroy!

Fossil fuels are killing this world and is compounded by the destruction of beautiful forests in an effort to discover more coal. In a country such as India surely solar power is the way forward.
