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. For them, the problem is that of replicating the benefits: how do I convince people around me to adapt these methods?

AAP manifesto promises to make Delhi garbage-free within a year 20.4.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) released its manifesto for the upcoming municipal polls on Wednesday, promising to give a push to the cleanliness drive in the national Capital and complete eradication of corruption from the civic bodies. "We will make Delhi a garbage-free city within a year. We will use the best technology to serve the purpose," party Chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said during the manifesto launch. Taking a jibe at the Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Kejriwal said, "All of us joined the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, but Delhi BJP back-stabbed its own leader, PM Narendra Modi, by keeping the city dirty." Warning the people of Delhi against electing the BJP again, Kejriwal urged them "to save their city from the menace of garbage, which was leading to massive mosquito breeding". "AAP will make Delhi free of dengue and chikungunya in the next three years," he said.
