The Economic Times - - Breaking Ideas -

Apro­pos the Edit, ‘In­dia Should Lead in Cli­mate Tech­nol­ogy’ (Dec 7), the coun­try took a cli­mate-friendly step by lead­ing the In­ter­na­tional So­lar Al­liance. How­ever, this is just the first step, and more needs to be done. We are al­ready reel­ing un­der the in­creas­ing im­pact of nat­u­ral dis­as­ters such as floods and cy­clones, for which cli­mate change is the big­gest causal fac­tor. Hence, in such a sce­nario, we need to im­me­di­ately take proac­tive steps to mit­i­gate car­bon emis­sions. More­over, such ex­pe­ri­ence will also stand us in good stead with re­spect to our sup­port for cli­mate change con­cerns of is­land coun­tries such as the Mal­dives.
