Dear Nksagar, Food Tank respects farmers.

Dear Nksagar,

Food Tank respects farmers. That’s why we work hard to regularly share quality, original content about farmers, the challenges they face, and the on-the-ground solutions and innovations they are using to help build a more fair, more sustainable, and more just food system.
You can support our efforts to highlight farmers by becoming a Food Tank member. Join, upgrade, or renew your membership TODAY and get this free t-shirt (promo code: FoodHero) so that you can share your love of farmers with the world.

Do you want to learn more about some of our farmer heroes?  Check out these Ten Farmers You Need to Know. You can browse articles by category on our new website, so it’s now easier than ever to find our recent coverage of farmers.
We also believe in bringing the voices of farmers into the broader conversation about food system change, which is why we’ve featured farmers at every one of our Food Tank Summits.
In Washington, D.C. in 2015, we hosted a panel on Family Farmers Creating Resilience in the Food System; in 2016, the second annual Washington D.C. Summit featured a panel on Farmers Leading the Food Movement; our 2016 Summit in Sacramento, CA, Farm Tank, was centered around farmers, farming, and agriculture; and the final 2016 Food Tank Summit in Chicago included a panel on Farming the Future. We’re planning our 2017 Summits now and farmers will once again be joining us on stage.
If you want to read more about farmers and farm workers on FoodTank.com or want to help us bring the voices of more and more diverse farmers to a global audience at our Food Tank Summits, you can help! Join, upgrade, or renew TODAY to support Food Tank’s efforts to put farmers at the center of the conversation about our global food system.
Use promo code FoodHero when you join to get a free t-shirt (available in multiple cuts and sizes) so that everyone can see that Farmers Are Your Heroes.
All the best,

CEA Reluctantly Lowers Demand Estimates GHG Cut

December16, 2016 (C) Ravinder Singh progressindia2015@gmail.com
CEA just now announced 17% Cut in power Demand to 235,000 MW for next 5 years which still is 75,000 MW more than this FY17 and 317,000 MW, 20.7% cut in 10 years, which is exactly DOUBLE even after cut of present peak demand of 160,000 MW to 157,000 MW.

Ø   Demand Projected is DOUBLE Even after 83,000 MW Cut in 10 Yrs
Present power situation is India is –
‘Peak Demand 160,000 MW, Installed Capacity 310,000 MW, Peak Demand With Reduced T&D Losses & Energy Efficiency Around 100,000 MW, 75,000 MW Capacity Always Down & 50,000 MW Thermal Capacity Under Development’

Clearly Indian Power sector is Most Corrupted, Polluted, Inefficient and Drag on Economy of 1250m Nation.

When I notice Person is STUPID and Unfit for the job I have no option but to Write Harshly.

Soft approach in India rarely or never work. One of the soft letter is mailed since 2010 or when Shyam Saran was leading Environment Delegation to Climate Change Events.

For 5 Yrs I give my Current Phone No. no one in GOI is serious.

Green Energy India Can AVOID 3.0 B.Tones of GHG Annually
September11, 2014 (C) Ravinder Singh ravinderinvent@gmail.com
India’s Energy Policy is loaded entirely in favor of Costliest and Most Polluting Coal based power. Even the latest Super Critical Thermal Plants are not effective mainly because such units are located in hot regions, high ambient air and circulating water temperature and shortage of water adds up to much lower thermal efficiency and in addition there are substantial Transmission & Distribution losses. Use of low quality coal releases around 200 million tones of Fly Ash at power stations, partly in air also.
Business As Usual situation may consume 2000 million tone of Coal every year producing over 800 million tones of Fly Ash at power stations including 160 million tones released in air by 2030.
