A chemical winter has arrived. A poisonous cloud now covers Delhi. The sun has faded away and turned into a stain. Houses in the next street dissolved in a poisonous fog. People have killed nature, now nature is killing people.
We put on cloth masks and go out into the street, but the masks do not help. Poisonous smog passes into our lungs and causes coughing, dizziness, and poisoning. United Airlines canceled all flights to Delhi. They refused to risk the health of the crew and passengers. Schools are closed in the capital of India. The work at construction sites has stopped. The city has banned trucks from entering.
They strained out a gnat and swallowed a camel. Chemical and heavy industrial factories operate as if nothing had happened. In Delhi, the smog level is over 1,000! What is 1,000? This is 50 times above the norm!
How does smog affect a person? The Ozone causes asthma and makes breathing difficult. Nitrogen dioxide causes inflammation of the respiratory tract and compresses the lungs. Sulfur dioxide causes coughing and uncontrollable discharge from the nose. Carbon monoxide causes dizziness, fatigue, and distraction.
The poisonous fog also caused a lot of accidents. Drivers are usually already exhausted, lacking sleep, and on top of that, there’s a poisonous fog!
Visibility fell sharply on the roads. The drivers are poisoned with the toxic smog and lose their vigilance. Just in few days, many adults and children were killed.
How long can a person live without food? – A month. Without water? – 3 days. Without air? – 5 minutes. People have killed nature, now nature is killing people.
In India, there is no clean drinking water left. It is impossible to buy food without chemical additives. And now there is no air. Is civilization going so far that we will have to buy clean air in cylinders, just as we now buy drinking water in bottles?
Please pray for the poor, they can’t buy respirators and they do not have money for medical care. Pray for us and for our team – it’s very dangerous and difficult to ride in poisonous smog and have meetings in such conditions. Pray that God will expand our limits so we able to save even more street children from violence, human trafficking and poverty.
