Radhika Gulati started this petition to Shri Ranjendra Kumar Tiwari and

Are SOFT GREEN ROADSIDES essential?

After forests and oceans, SOIL is the biggest carbon sink These kachcha roadsides with soil, bricks, vegetation have been serving us quietly for decades:
� Reduce warming: absorb heat 9 mths/yr.
� No expense compost machines n factories 12 mths/yr
�Mitigate bad effects of fossil fuel emissions 12 mths/yr
�Curb dust pollution 12 mths/yr
� Natural RWH by ground water recharging 3-4 mths/yr
� Habitat for local flora/fauna 12 mths/yr

But all such roadsides are being indiscriminately paved with concrete tiles smothering every square foot of roadsides soil in Arun Vihar, Noida
So brace for
�Urban heat islands
�More atmospheric warming
☀️Reflection of harmful solar radiation
�Choking of trees/saplings
�More pollution
�Elimination of biodiversity
�Increased surface run-off into nallah
�Less ground water recharging
�More rodents/reptiles/insects within your premises

AND REMEMBER 
they will not be turned into safe pedestrian walkways or cycling tracks but used for more illegal commercial activity and parking at the cost of our community
