Global warming, a chance to reset development paradigm 21.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The United Nations has marked April 22 as the International Mother Earth Day, and this year the theme is "Environmental and Climate literacy." Literacy, which refers to the knowledge-status of a person, drives change. At this juncture, the Mother Earth is stressed from overuse and pollution. Hence, promoting literacy about environmental degradation and global warming is necessary to create a demand for adjusting the trajectory of modern development towards sustainability and wellbeing. The pursuit of development has led to the current global warming trend. It is a manmade planetary scale phenomenon. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), impacts of global warming are evident in the sea level rise, melting of polar icecaps and increase in extreme climate events.

Clean climate: get rid of resistance to change 20.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The reality of man-made climate change has passed the stage when denying its presence would give any real solace. It is happening and humans are responsible for whatever will unfold upon our future generations because of it. The lasting solutions to these problems - if they ever come - must be spearheaded by governments. However, the governments are constrained by other more immediate problems to deal with: economic development, education, health, security, not to mention elections etc. Individuals, on the other hand, are free to apply practices of sustainability quite directly.
