    Again with the blast furnace. Who said anything about that?
    Also, only 9% of coal produced energy is for the industrial sector

    Great, but what does this have to do with coal? Also, India's smog is not necessarily from coal power plants. There are lots of other factors, very few of them localized

    "Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?" ~ Epicurus
