Climate Change- Its Science Effects and Mitigation Strategies
In the next 20 to 30 years we will see citizens wearing oxygen masks
To sensitize the citizens of the nation, experts in environmental protection and climate change recently came together in New Delhi at Climate reality India to discuss on “Climate Change: Its Science, Effects and Mitigation Strategies”.
Speaking on climate change and the dire need to push for improvements, Shri Pradip Burman , Chairman of Dabur Nepal Pvt Ltd , Trustee of the Climate Reality Project in India a part of Al’Gore’s Climate initiative said, “Climate change, not only in India but all over the world, is a serious threat to all living species. It’s an immense damage to people’s health, which will extremely affect the future generation as well. Speaking of India, it is a country which is highly vulnerable to climatic changes and its adverse effects. It’s a harsh reality that the days are not far when it would be next to impossible for us to breathe in the absence of oxygen masks.”
While emphasizing on the need to take serious action Mr Krishan Kalra, an engineer by training, formerly Additional Secretary-General- FICCI and Trustee of the Climate Reality Project in India added, “We’re already witnessing detrimental consequences due to escalating heat levels, which is greatly affecting the mankind, plants, animals and ecosystems. This coupled with increasing population is tremendously catering to global warming and other threatening issues, ultimately resulting in the death of huge masses in India. However, we’re hoping that the effective initiatives like the International Solar Alliance, Clean Ganga Mission to name a few, taken by the government will massively help in plummeting these ongoing problems. That’s how we can fight these hazardous impediments to make India a better place to live.” at Climate Reality india.
