World's climate change challenges are interlinked

The human condition in the future would depend on how we manage the scarcity of water, energy and food. RK Pachauri writes

Light our way out

India has the capacity and intellectual power to devise ‘out of the box’ solutions. Yet, we are blindly following the prosperous nations of the north, writes RK Pachauri.

Fresh impetus in the right direction

At the macro level, a major shift towards renewable sources of energy along with a carefully planned expansion of nuclear power is required. Our buildings, both existing and new ones, require changes in design and structure, by which energy efficiency can be improved substantially, writes Dr RK Pachauri.

A fluid situation

The solution to the country’s water woes lies in managing the uses of water rather than focusing only on enhancement of supply, writes R.K. Pachauri.

Lost in statistics

Gross domestic product fails as a true measure of economic welfare. It’s time to come up with better measures of human progres, writes RK Pachauri.

Cold, necessary cuts

Reducing meat consumption can  bring down greenhouse gas emissions. Such lifestyle changes can make climate change mitigation work, writes RK Pachauri.
