BJP’s ‘Kaho Na Payar Hai – 200 Days’ in Lonely Island
December17, 2014 (C) Ravinder Singh ravinderinvent@gmail.com

The problems of BJP are many – no one knew before elections who shall
win who shall be minister so they were all on ‘Kaho Na Pyar Hai’ Mode
before and after elections – you give us votes because you love us and
hate INC who had [—- Looted —].

BJP believed Rs.400,00,000 crores in Foreign Banks could be brought to
India and some of BJP sister groups even advocated ZERO Tax regime for
50 years – all the government funds would be sourced from foreign
Black Money accounts.

Their Ship exploring ‘Black Money’ is stranded at a lonely island
where it discovered they had no money so they launched JAN DHAN YOJNA
and they have to Clean the Beach to pitch up tents – So they
introduced Swachh Bharat [Jhadu] Yojna.

BJP ruling party has three broad factions – 1. Pro People Poor &
Farmer Faction, 2. Capitalist Faction who want to entrust everything
to Corporate and 3. Religious Faction has its own independent agenda.

80% of BJP support came from BIMARU states and Rural Predominantly
Farming States – Bihar, UP, Jharkhand, Chhatisgarh, MP, Rajasthan,
Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, where Gujarat MODEL is difficult to implement.

There is STALEMATE or Policy Crisis in all ministries.

Energy Minister is unable to introduce SolarPV Rooftops, LED lights
and Nuclear & Hydro Power and Energy Efficiency is pulled away to
promote Coal Mining and Coal Based power.

Education minister is tasked to Introduced Sanskrit against people’s
will even as even School Education is substandard, higher education is
compromised.

Though Petroleum prices have nearly halved but LPG and CNG prices have
not been reduced and Petroleum & Diesel Prices have not halved.

Water ministry is not working on Multipurpose Dams to Produce Power,
Store & Supply Clean Water, Prevent Floods, and other benefits – has
no plan to harness 200,000 MW of Hydro Potential in Himalayas alone.

Railway Ministry is interested in Bullet Train than Improving in
Operation Services.

Food Processing ministry is allocated Rs.4000 crore – almost nothing
after deducting for administrative costs but has potential to create
100m to 200m jobs.

Agriculture is neglected. MRP increase was Rs.50 per Quintal whereas
price of Jams, Pickles, Ketchup, Tea, Snack Foods have gone up Rs.50
to Rs.100 per kg.

Industry is Crashing except Automobile.

R&D Count is ZERO or less than 00.01% of 10 million patents enforced
are Indian owned.

Rs.50,00,000 Crores Credit to Industry is Blocked and EverGreened,
there are no IPOs and Fixed Deposit route to fund projects. Tax
Concessions to Industry are more than Tax Collected. Tax Collections
are Declining But Expenditure Rising.

Road Minister is interested in Water Ways and Ships at Sea to carry
INLAND goods.

Wealth generation has declined with falling exchange rate. Median
Wealth in India is barely $1006 per adult. Wealth Distribution is a
Key Concern in a nation of 1.25 billion people.

Housing sector continues to Inefficient – builders take 5-8 years to
finish a 1-5 acre project.

There are not many High Paid offered by Indian Owned companies. Owners
also operate as Chairman of Board, Managing Director BLOCKING OVER
100,000 CEO Rank JOBS for Top ENGINEERS & Inventors.

There are no Bank Takeover and Revival of thousands of Sick Industrial
units – a factory built at Rs.10 cr allowed to go DEAD shall at new
site may cost Rs.300 cr.

10.3 million Indian Factory workers are paid just $16b annually – less
than Microsoft wage bill. Indian factory worker earns just $1600 in
Organized Sector and $800 in unorganized contract labor in a year.

BRAIN Drain is now BRAIN FLOOD – over a million Indians are Studying
Abroad with idea of migration – majority of Indian Engineers prefer
Foreign Jobs.

Global Energy and Carbon Intensity Continue to Decline

Global Energy and Carbon Intensity Continue to Decline

  

New Worldwatch Institute analysis examines trends

in energy and carbon emissions globally

Washington, D.C.—-Global energy intensity, defined as worldwide total energy consumption divided by gross world product, decreased 0.19 percent in 2013. Although this may not seem impressive, considering that energy intensity  increased steeply between 2008 and 2010, this small decline continues a much-needed trend toward lower energy intensity, writes Haibing Ma, China Program Manager at the Worldwatch Institute (www.worldwatch.org).

Although a growing economy generally correlates with growing absolute energy use, energy intensity may well decline. In the 1990s, industrial economies started to turn to a new growth paradigm that relied heavily on service sectors. This “knowledge-based economy” is much less energy-intensive than the economic model that most nations adopted during industrialization. As a result, global energy intensity decreased 13.72 percent during the 1990s-the largest drop in the past 50 years.

The situation has been vastly different in the new millennium, however. While the first decade saw great volatility, with two upward surges during 2002-04 and 2008-10, the period between 2004 and 2008, saw a decrease in intensity of 3.50 percent. In the early years of the decade, large emerging economies like China started investing heavily in energy-intensive sectors, and after the onset of the global financial crisis in 2008, many countries implemented massive stimulus packages focused on energy-intensive sectors like manufacturing, construction, and infrastructure. But as the world economy began to recover after 2010, the previous pattern of global energy intensity reductions resumed.

Carbon intensity-defined as total emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) divided by gross world product-is another important environmental indicator. Global carbon intensity has followed the same general pattern of energy intensity, dropping 36.62 percent overall between 1990 and 2013, but rising between 2002 and 2004. After 2008, probably because of the impact of the economic recession, the decline in global carbon intensity generally slowed, although 2013 brought a slightly more rapid pace than in previous years. Advanced economies show a steadier decline in carbon intensity than newly industrialized and transitional countries do.

In 2006, China surpassed the United States as the world’s largest CO2 emitter. Realizing the risk, the Chinese government has been taking aggressive efforts to slow its CO2 emissions. In its climate action annual report released in November 2014, China claims that its carbon intensity decreased 4.3 percent between 2012 and 2013 and dropped 28.56 percent from the 2005 level. World Bank data show lower drops of 3.61 percent and 24.97 percent, respectively.

At a meeting in Beijing in November 2014, President Obama and President Xi issued a joint announcement in which China proposed to peak its carbon emissions by 2030. The critical question is at what number this peak will be achieved. Further reducing the economy’s carbon intensity will help to achieve a lower peak than otherwise possible.

Global energy intensity and carbon intensity are essentially measuring the efficiency with which human economic activities interact with nature. To ensure a sustainable development path globally, these two indicators need to be watched closely.

Anti-Islamic rally expands in Germany

5
Anti-Islamic rallies are expanding rapidly in eastern Germany. The country’s leaders are concerned that the movement could lead to broader social unrest.A demonstration in Dresden drew about 15,000 people on Monday. Participants rallied against Islamic extremism and demanded restrictions on the inflow of Muslim refugees from the Middle East.The weekly event was started in October by a group calling itself Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West. It initially drew about 500 people, but soon grew sharply. Similar rallies are now being held in other cities.

Most participants are ordinary citizens, but some are thought to be members of far-right groups with xenophobic ideals.

Chancellor Angela Merkel told a news conference on Monday that there’s freedom of assembly in Germany, but there’s no place for incitement and lies about people who come from other countries.

More than 500 young people are said have traveled from Germany to join the Islamic State militant group in Iraq and Syria. Germans are concerned about the possibility of terrorist attacks by the returning recruits.

German leaders are alarmed that the anti-Islamic rallies could inflame animosity against an estimated 4 million Muslims in the country, and lead to social unrest.

US, Iran resume nuclear talks

Diplomats from the United States and Iran have resumed talks on Iran’s nuclear program after Iran and 6 major powers failed to meet the November deadline for a deal.Foreign ministers of the 5 permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany agreed with their Iranian counterpart on November 24th to extend their deadline for an agreement on Iran’s nuclear development until the end of June next year.The ministers said that while progress had been made, there are still some serious gaps to close.

The Iranian media reported that the acting deputy secretary of the US State Department, Wendy Sherman, met Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi in Geneva on Monday.

119 journalists abducted in 2014

An international media advocacy group says 119 journalists were kidnapped this year, an increase of 32 from last year.The Paris-based Reporters Without Borders said in a report that 66 journalists were killed in 2014, 5 fewer than in the previous year.The group installed a shipping container in front of the Eiffel Tower on Tuesday to highlight the case of an imprisoned journalist.

It said a number of journalists were kidnapped for ransom by Islamic State militants and others. 47 journalists were kidnapped in Syria and Iraq.

The group says the beheading of journalists for propaganda purposes had rarely taken place before.

It says the murders have become more barbaric and the number of abductions is growing rapidly in an attempt to prevent independent news coverage.

Abbott orders ‘sweeping investigation’ into deadly hostage crisis

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott on Wednesday ordered a sweeping investigation into this week’s deadly Sydney hostage crisis, Reuters said. The decision came after tough new security laws and the courts failed to stop a convicted felon from walking into a Sydney cafe with a concealed shotgun. Three people were killed, including hostage taker Man Haron Monis, when police stormed a cafe in the city early Tuesday. Australia passed sweeping security laws in October aimed at stopping its citizens from going to fight alongside jihadists in conflicts in Iraq and Syria.

NATO doubles number of flights near Russian borders – Russia top brass

NATO has boosted the number of intelligence flights near Russian borders, Russian Air Force chief Viktor Bondarev said. Over 3,000 flights have been registered in total in the border zone in 2014, thus doubling the figures of 2013. The routes are very close to the border which allows taking intelligence from areas almost 500 km over the border, Bondarev said. The statement comes shortly after a Russian plane was accused of a dangerous approach with a Swedish civil plane last Friday. The Air Force Chief stressed that such reports are used to divert attention from NATO concentrating its forces near Russia.

India Gate, 600 PM : a call given by Delhi solidarity group and nagrik Ekta manch,AISA and others for candle light vigil at India Gate in memory of those dead at Peshawar siege was not tolerated by Delhi Police. Delhi police disrupted the whole programme and then used mild force on men and women. There were no women police officials but men not only misbehaved but also snatched away the candle. Once Swami Agnivesh joined the March they allowed us to move out of the radial on the main road, but there they cordoned off the whole area and then forcefully arrested Swami Agnivesh, Prof Apoorvanand, JNU president Ashutosh Kumar, Delhi Solidarity Group Convener Sanjeev Kumar, Women’;s activist Purnima Gupta, farmers leader and NAPM convener Bhupender Singh Rawat and 15 others.
They are all detained at Parliament Street police station. Women activists were picked up by men police and now even in evening they are all at a police station,this says a lot about Delhi Police.

NAPM strobgly condemns this action and demands immediate release and an apology from Delhi Police for use of force and disrupting the programme,which was done in memory of children killed by the terrorists. when people of this country are saying we stand with Pakistan in hour of crisis,then Indian State is calking them anti national and arresting them. The only way is peace and we have to condemn terrorism in all forms.
