The climate change is affecting a lot of places that we just cannot afford to ignore it anymore. Do u feel the changes? If so in what way. Help spread a wave of awareness for conservation of our dear EARTH. Wish U a wonderful day!

Hi! It is indeed getting hotter by the day in our place too in Hyderabad, India. Coupled with this we have powerouts, so you can imagine the hardships we endure during this season. Alas! there is also severe water shortage in the city with the ground water table going down deeper. We complain only when we suffer. We contribute only to increasing the miseries, not to mitigate them. Over population, leading to overdoing the housing (congesting), over induction of automobiles for transport and so on. Time to encourage or even enforce the use of alternate source of energy like solar, even if it is expensive. That way the excessive heat gets utilised and reduces the need to burn the fossil fuel. Government should not permit production of cars using petrol/diesel. There can be several such measures, but few that matter listen to us.

I am all for electric vehicles. The automobile industry becoming shutdown is not something the gov approves though. Because it will create loss of jobs and many other problems. The problem continues to be the lack of courage to take that important step forward regardless of the consequences. If this continues maybe things will get out of hand. AP
