Long BBC story about Sri Lanka and tea

and not 𝗼𝗻𝗲 mention that the catastrophe was because the President decided to have Sri Lanka go organic on April 27, 2021

Almost as if this is not politically correct to say?

President very clear that he wanted to get rid of synthetic fertilizers for health reasons, not to save money

Sri Lanka will become first country to be free of chemical fertilizer; President

A 20-step plan to transform Sri Lanka into “green socio-economy”

renewable energy
environmentally designed urban houses
reduce banned plastic (?)
25% extra tax on cars
“Encouraging mass media to spread environment friendly programs among the masses”

Cabinet nod to President’s proposal to ban chemical fertilizer and pesticides

Just like Bloomberg couldn’t make themselves say that it was because of Sri Lanka going organic
