Mumbai: a climate change alert again 1.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Opinion
On August 29, Mumbai was deluged by torrential rains, making it challenging for most people in India's largest city to reach their destinations. Chandigarh, that "urban planner's marvel", faced a similar situation a few days ago; Chennai suffered it in 2015; and every year, floods create havoc in the central and north-eastern states, wrecking cities, wiping away farmlands, causing loss of human lives and livestock. While the inability of our cities to deal with the rains and flooding is a failure of planning and administration, experts attribute unusually heavy rains and other abnormal weather events to climate change, highlighting the huge costs we must bear in order to mitigate its effects, or spend even more to adapt.

Piyush Goyal, the Union Minister for Power, Coal, New and Renewable Energy, and Mines, has blamed the state government for the shortage of electricity in Karnataka. He said the country was self-sufficient in coal and electricity. Speaking to journalists here on Friday, he said there would be no shortage of electricity if the state supported the Centre in extending the power transmission lines. "Hydroelectric power is suffering in Karnataka for the last three years due to failed monsoons. It is unfortunate that farmers irrigation pump sets in the state do not get eight hours of power supply for watering of crops. Karnataka can buy power from the Centre at Rs 3 per unit," he said. He continued: "Since the NDA came to power, we have increased the number of transmission lines in South India. We aim to increase it fivefold." Asserting that the country has enough coal supplies, Goyal said the Union government had sanctioned solar parks with a capacity of 2,000 MW to Karnataka. "Energy shortage shrunk in April ...
