TROPOSPHERE – Large scale protests marred the lowest layer of Earth’s atmosphere on Wednesday, April 22. Extending from the Earth’s surface to an average height of about 12 km, with both the altitude and attitude varying across the layers, the protestors demanded justice for what they deemed is ‘barefaced discrimination’ against them.
Coinciding with Earth Day, the planet’s pollutants assembled in numbers even larger and denser than usual to question why no one spoke up for their plight.
“Why isn’t there a Planet Pollutants Day? Why is there an Earth Day, but no day to celebrate us?” read placards held up by protesting 380 ppm Carbon Dioxide clusters perpendicular to North Pole, during the early hours of Wednesday morning. Pollutants around the world have expressed similar outrage over being left out and abandoned by “so called environment activists”.
“We are a part of the environment as well. Pollutant rights are also environmental rights, you climanazis!” shouted a thick cloud of Sulphur Dioxide during the protest.
Furthermore, the protestors further underlined that the double standards of the activists, and their abandonment of the pollutants rights, can be seen given the “times we’re living in”.
“Covid-19 has taken a toll on many, but none more so than us as a community,” said an aerosol while talking to The Dependent. “Many of our friends have disappeared from the surface of the Earth. And yet there’s no one raising their voice against this cleansing.”
