An Alternative Programme for Climate Conservation

.

While the recently concluded Glasgow summit has re-emphasised the urgency of checking climate change, at the same time, the inadequacy of the existing international response is also emerging clearly. Hence, here, a very different approach for curbing climate change is presented. This approach is based on a common programme for the entire world to be implemented as per the conditions of various regions and countries. This programme does not see checking climate change as an isolated activity but integrates it with resolving other serious problems as well as justice issues.
