If you've ever read about the Ganges River you know that India is not that big on environmental issues. They dump raw sewage in there, discharge chemicals from chemical plants along the river in there, it's full of dead bodies of animals and humans (don't worry they put meat eating turtles in there to eat them*) and they bathe in there. Oh, it's also the source of their drinking water.

Nilssonia gangetica. Might make a good pet. It's like a very, very slow version of a pit bull.

Don't be an environmental activist in a developing nation.  It's a good way to die "mysteriously".

I'd say expanding coal plants and coal mining might be more of a long term threat, especially if you can't feed your people any longer because global warming and over-exploitation of resources has already begun turned formerly fertile fields into deserts.

Well, since sinking The Rainbow Warrior is a popular game with some modern armed forces, I guess....

India must have been very bad in a former life to have come back as India.

In fairness to India, while Greenpeace stepped back across the line form being an outright terrorist organization a while back, they still seem to enjoy rubbing up against that line on a regular basis, and they don't even seem to understand where the line between a symbolic prank and life-threatening industrial sabotage is.

All of which might be more forgivable if they actually showed any evidence of understanding anything approaching real environmentalism.  As it is they're more just random luddite/anarchist assholes wandering around farking shiat up.  Having them in your country is sort of like letting a toddler wander around your machine shop... they don't really know what they're doing and usually they just injure themselves, but there's a potential they'll break something important and their presence isn't actually accomplishing anything useful.

Good to see that a government that values progress and profits can keep those hippies and their "don't poison the poors" crap in their place.

America does a fine job of that too.  The only time it makes news is when rich people seem to be affected instead of the poors.

The poors in India are doing an excellent job of poisoning themselves with their own feces and don't need much help from the wealthy. Just getting people to use some kind of latrine rather than shiatting on the side of the road is turning out to be something of a struggle for the Indian government. Indian "infrastructure" would be laughable if it weren't so appalling.

On the other hand, the air, soil, and water has an LD50 on par with lead paint, so...

India is a great place but very dirty.  The air in New Delhi was so bad it was smoggy from the moment we left the airport and it was ever present.   Then in other cities it was also bad.  Lots of trash.  Everywhere.  Any environmental changes can only be good there.

You know who else was a Rainbow Warrior?
