  • Vinai Pathak says himself fool as he is now campaigning for Greenpeace India, an NGO working for environmental issues. He says usually he make people laugh but this time he is very serious about saving forests.

    I am Vinay Pathak, and I'm usually trying to make you laugh. Today I'm very serious - serious about saving our forests.

    I find it hard to imagine that there are people who want to cut down forests for the coal underneath them. Especially when there are other ways to ensure we have power. Sadly enough, our government wants to replace our last remaining forests in central and eastern India with ugly, barren coal mines, displacing millions of people and much wildlife dependent on these forests.

    People and organisations like Greenpeace who want them to keep our forests safe, are called foolish. If our 'smart leaders' have their way, they’ll clear all our forests. I don't want that to happen because I am a Fool for Forests. Surely you don’t want this to happen either?

    Join me and become a Fool for Forests.

    As a supporter of Greenpeace, I know that the organisation has been working hard to keep the environment safe and that includes the forests too. This effort to protect the forests will gain more strength if all Fools for Forests like us come together and support it.

    Recently, I read that research done by the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change has shown that renewable energy can provide for the entire world.[1] When we have such a clean and viable option, why is the government so crazy about destroying our forests to get dirty coal?

    Our children deserve to experience the beauty of forests and the life forms that co-exist in them. Let's be foolish now so that our future generations have a smart future. Become a Fool for Forests now!
