Believe it or not, the 2G scam proceedings has an environment aspect to it. The chargesheet runs into 80,000 pages and has 17 accused. Each of them is to be provided with a copy. If you include the judges and the lawyers it goes upto at least 20 lakh pices of paper. Now, a standard tree gives us 8500 sheets of paper implying that one chargesheet is was basically ten (erstwhile) trees!
So what is the environment aspect? 2G scam accused Asif Balwa got the court to agree to using his iPad thus saving ten trees.
