death allegedly by a mob infuriated by rumours of bovine smuggling in Hapur district of Uttar Pradesh.The mob which included many minors showed no mercy to Qasim and Samiuddin 65 who underwent a surgery last week after being brutally beaten up for trying to save Qasim Qasim’s autopsy report revealed that he had sustained 10 grave injuries His brother Salim is still in trauma and the family has lived in fear since the incident "We don’t know when people will barge into our homes and beat us to death" said Salim "My brother was killed by the mob which alleged that he was involved in cow smuggling He was a cattle trader Our family has been involved in the trade for two generations We love every animal like our own How can someone just make allegations and kill" He has no faith left in society "Many boys part of the mob knew Qasim well yet they killed him The police are trying to make the incident appear as a case of road rage but the videos viral on social media show it was a cold-blooded murder We don’t step out now for fear and people have stopped speaking to us especially the Hindus" Salim said Always fearing for their lives Muslims in his village go out to buy supplies only in groups They have also stopped eating non-vegetarian food and their children are forbidden from stepping out of the house even for school or play The family is suffering because they lost their main breadwinner "For how many days will people stay inside their homes"Salim asked The same tale of suffering is narrated by Vakil Ahmad whose father was lynched last year by a mob in Bulandshahr in Uttar Pradesh not over cow worship but on another pretext He now lives in Aligarh but has not been able to get a job to feed his family "Our family was boycotted after my father’s death"he said "Everyone knew he was murdered in broad daylight The shopkeepers denied us salt and sugar The officials denied us rations and we brothers lost our jobs This is India for us" "In the whole village there was only one Hindu family that supported us and that family too had to face society’s anger We eventually had to shift to Aligarh" he added Cows suffering not thriving Sadly the condition of the "gau mata" has not improved despite the large-scale slaughter India is home to as many as 5 million stray cows that roam the streets often causing road accidents in which more than 300 people died in the last two and a half years Cow activist Sunil Singh who was earlier related to a Hindutva outfit complained that the BJP government had promised to protect cows in its election manifesto but did little on the ground to save the animals File image of a cow Reuters "Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath had staged a drama He ordered the closure of all slaughterhouses in the state but many of them still function illegally in every city Cow smuggling has also increased The animals still roam on the roads eat plastic and die Nothing concrete has been done to save them" he said Recently seven cows were found dead in Lucknow An inquiry was ordered but nothing conclusive was found In March severalcows were found dead in Lakhimpur Kheri district and people had evenheld protests The police registered a case but could not ascertain the cause of death According to agriculture scientist Balbir Singh the problem in India is that people who buy cows for milk desert the animals after they stop producing it "The cow is a profit-making animal in India People don’t want to keep it when it stops producing milk They are then left on the streets to die" he explained "The practice of abandoning the animal has been followed for ages and only awareness can stop this" It may be mentioned that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced the Rashtriya Gokul Mission and pumped in Rs 500 crore to raise desi(indigenous) cows Also the central government spent $41 million between 2014 and 2016 to set up cowsheds But AK Yadav who runs one such gaushalaon the outskirts of Lucknow complains that his cowshed is overcrowded "I had a place for 40 cows but there are more than 200 animals in my shed now People leave the cows on the roads where they eat plastic and garbage Many get injured in road accidents and die There is no one to take care of them" he said "Cows are abandoned also because Hindus will not buy or take them even for free once they stop giving milk and they will never sell the cows to Muslims because they know they will be slaughtered" Despite "cow-protection policies" India is one of the world’s top beef exporters with all-time high exports of $478 billion

the Kingerys met with 24 other residents for an advocacy training workshop in order to help advance the efforts of the Bemijdi Citizen’s Climate Lobby The goal according to Brad Kingery is to get federal legislation that creates a fee and dividend or a price on carbon"Our focus is working with members of the House and the Senate" Brad Kingery said "We want to create political will by engaging in a very polite and organized way to develop relationships with our leaders We want to get the message to them that we are concerned about the climate and we know a way to help solve the problem without creating a downturn in the economy"According to the lobby’s website the carbon tax would be revenue neutral with all of the net revenue going back to households The lobby’s website also states that this would in turn make cleaner sources of energy more competitive in the economyLinda Kingery added that the lobby with nearly 500 chapters across the country is nonpartisan and that there are signs that bipartisanship can happen legislatively in Congress"Within the past 18 months the Climate Solutions Caucus has formed in the House" Linda Kingery said "Congressional members join in pairs one republican and one democrat There were six original members and now the number is at 40"For both Brad and Linda environmental matters have been important to them for years partly because of their professions Brad has worked in forest management while Linda has experience in watershed management and regional sustainable developmentAlong with working directly with the environment outdoors Brad said he’s had climate change on his radar since the 1970s And it still remains todayHuman activity related to climate changeAccording to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration a large body of evidence supports human activity as a primary driver of recent climate warming The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change where a group of 1300 independent scientific experts from across the world concluded that there’s more than a 95 percent probability that human activities over the past 50 years have warmed the planetResearch by NASA shows that the entire planet’s average surface temperature has risen about 20 degrees Fahrenheit since the late 19th century and that most of that warming has occurred in the past 35 years The top 700 meters of the ocean meanwhile has shown warming of 302 degrees Fahrenheit since 1969 according to NASA A cause that’s been listed by NASA as one of the contributors to the large amounts of greenhouse gases has been the increase in carbon dioxide levels Additionally sea levels are expected to rise 1-4 feet by 2100 and summer temperatures are projected to continue rising causing a reduction of soil moisture which exacerbates heat waves in much of the western and central United States In the Midwest NASA predicts extreme heat downpours and flooding as well as exacerbating a range of risk to the Great LakesLocal effortsThe potential impacts of climate change have been a driving factor in the Kingerys joining the CCL and they brought that message to Bemidji’s Sustainability Committee to seek supportAt the committee’s meeting Wednesday Brad Kingery described the goals of the CCL and the steps the city could make in building political backing on climate action After a roundtable discussion the committee opted to revisit the CCL’s proposal at its July 5 meetingBemidji is no stranger to climate and sustainability awareness In 2007 then-Mayor Richard Lehmann signed on to the Mayors Climate Protection Agreement on Earth DayThen a year later the Bemidji Sustainability Committee was formed The committee has worked to reduce energy demands for electricity heating and transportation while also removing barriers to encourage installation of renewable energy generation with an emphasis on local ownershipBemidji joined the Minnesota GreenStep Cities program in 2012 The GreenStep initiative is a voluntary challenge assistance and recognition program to help cities achieve their sustainability and quality-of-life goalsIn 2015 Bemidji began work on a performance contract across the city’s buildings and operations through a new statewide Guaranteed Energy Savings Program (GESP) leading to numerous energy efficiency improvements"We recognize that if everyone does a little bit it will help That’s what Bemidji’s trying to do we’re trying to do our part to make our world more sustainable" said Bemidji Mayor Rita AlbrechtAnna Carlson BSU assistant sustainability director and sustainability committee member said the trend of municipalities continuing their work regardless of other governmental decisions is becoming more common"In the wake of national events I’ve really seen a doubling down in local communities that see themselves as drivers of climate protection and clean energy development" Carlson said "It’s pretty inspiring to see the efforts locally in that regard"Much the committee’s work has been outreach to the community about sustainability efforts An example is the committee’s annual Sustainable Places Tour showcasing how residents and businesses are reducing energy and water usage while increasing their food independence"We also work really strongly with city staff to identify ways the city can become more sustainable" Carlson said "Our work has taken a lot of different routes with the recent one being pollinator protection and previously working with the city on GESP"So what sparked Bemidji’s sustainability push The answer is right outside Carlson said"We’re sort of nestled up here in the northwoods and have close proximity to our natural environment" Carlson said "So I think there’s a unique opportunity A lot of people who live and work here do so because of the environment and with that comes an awareness of the effects on that environment"Along with cities taking a stand on climate change action also has taken place recently at the state level On June 5 Gov Mark Dayton said he would bring Minnesota into the United States Climate Alliance a group of states working to follow the guidelines set by the Paris Agreement"Minnesota and other states will show the world what we can achieve by working together to conserve energy and to leave a livable planet to our children and grandchildren" he said in a releaseAccording to the United Nations’ website the Paris Agreement’s central aim is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change and help strengthen the ability of countries to deal with its impactsFormer Minister of Aviation Femi
