Write to India's Ministry of Environment and Forests

Dear Mr A. Raja and Mr Pradipto Ghosh, I hope this email finds you in the best of health and spirits. I read about India's stand that India's per-capita emissions are far lower than those of wealthier, developed countries. But what needs to be looked at is not per-capita emissions, but emissions per square kilometer. Otherwise, a country can simply keep increasing its population, to bring down the per-capita emissions numbers. India's per-capita emissions is simply lower because of India's huge population problem.

India simply does not have the amount of land ie air, and number of trees to be able to afford emissions. The pollution level per square mile in USA is FAR less than that in India.We understand that economic growth is very important, but we need to do that while having more trees and lesser pollution.

In response to http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/main.jhtml?xml=/earth/2007/06/12/eaindia12.xml
Best Regards, Avinash
