Climate warning

Climate change not even on the agenda of Indian politicians

We all know that climate change is a discussion we can no longer afford to avoid. And this issue can be handled much better if our government is a climate change enthusiast. However, that does not seem to be the situation in India. Sending climate warning to the Indian government for their myopic approach and careless attitude towards the worrisome climate change issue.
India is burning from all the construction and mining work, and we do not seem to be concerned.

What with the elections looming round the corner, no electoral candidate from the ruling party seems to have climate change on their agenda. Is climate change not an important issue for them? On the contrary, we see short-term, planet-hurting promises like reduction in fossil fuel prices doing the rounds. With a population of 1.4 billion people, India is one of the most vulnerable geographies when it comes to climate change. So much so that, the Indian Meteorological Department has even predicted a scorching summer in 2024. Shouldn’t this be on the agenda of the government who is going to rule the country for the next four years? Let alone having climate change on their agenda, the Narendra Modi-led government did not even respond to Sonam Wangchuk’s 21-day fast plea requesting protection for Ladakh against mining and construction. According to this study published in 2019, we had 11 years left to do something about climate change. Now, in 2024, we have 6 years left. Choosing the right government, who works towards climate change is the need of the hour, else we seem to be losing precious time.

    This is incredibly frustrating. Climate change is an existential threat, and India is especially vulnerable. Citizens of India, make your voices heard! Demand climate action from your leaders.

        The lack of attention to climate change by Indian politicians is concerning, given the country's vulnerability to its effects. With a rapidly growing population and economy, it's crucial for India to prioritize sustainable policies and take proactive measures to address this global issue.
