In this episode, we look at one of the most pressing realities of our time - climate change and its impact on the world around us. The United States and China - the two largest polluters in the world - sprung surprise recently by committing to cut emission drastically, a deed which has been questioned by many. Others ask what does this means for India? Does it increase pressure on us to commit to cut carbon emissions? India still largely depends on coal for its power and gas requirements and that really is the crux of our problem. How do we balance the need for industrial growth? Joining me on this dialogue is the Minister for Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Prakash Javadekar, former special Ambassador (under UPA government) of PM on climate change Shyam Saran and environmentalist Sunita Narain.
