Delhi Mayor Prof Rajni Abbi released a poster with a message in a function organised to celebrate World Environment Day. Prof Rajni said “Think of metro as your personal limousine; public park as your personal farm house, city river your personal swimming pool AND keep them clean. My country clean Country” On this occasion Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India said that all citizens of India should make efforts towards a safer and clean India.
Apart from external environment, we should also clean and look after our internal environment, he further added. He also appealed that manufacture of mercury instruments should be stopped. Environment health means not only reducing air pollution but also involves reducing the global warming, electromagnetic radiation pollution, and the noise pollution.
He said that one should switch over to CFL lamps as tube lights and bulbs consume more electricity compared to a CFL bulb. CFLs consume 75% less electricity and last 10 times longer. He recommended the use of CFL bulbs in fixtures that are kept switched on for more than two hours a day. A 23 watt compact fluorescent bulb can replace the 100 watts that a simple bulb requires. By just replacing 275 watt light bulbs that are switched on for four hours a day with 215 watt energy conservation lamps, one can save almost 18 kilowatt hours of electricity in an hour.
