In an edit page article, to coincide with the Climate Conference in Delhi, Valmik Thapar, the Conservationist, begins very well by advocating simplification of laws on forests and environment. But soon, goes back to demanding more government departments, more Services (that is, more bureaucracy), and finally ends with talk of the fraud called Climate Change.
It is the tragedy of present day India that our ruling elite is not able to see that the so called Climate Change is a Leftist fraud, designed to kill our industrialisation and modern economy in general. Climate Change is a natural process, climate has always been changing, and there is nothing we can do to stop this change. Of course very easily we can adapt to it, without ruining ourselves economically.
All the natural phenomenon: rains, floods, droughts, storms have been a constant in human existence, and more industrialised we get, more ready we are to face them.
“First, refocus the relevant laws. We have a plethora of laws, some dating back to the middle of the 19th century and a clutch of them passed after 1947. At the moment, dozens of laws contradict each other and the interpretations by our judiciary are complex, to say the least. We need the best minds in this field in India to sit and write one law for forests, wildlife and forest people, and another for the environment. Both must be easy to understand and short.” (from the article)
